What you can expect
During this tour, your guide will show you Warsaw off the beaten track.
From the Palace of Culture we head towards the Wola district, past the tallest residential building in Europe, Zlota 44, and the tallest building in the EU, Varso Tower. This is followed by a walk through the former industrial area, where skyscrapers are being built next to old factory ruins. The contrasts in Warsaw are most visible here. In the midst of this architectural chaos, you visit a modern residential building that has been connected to a piece of ghetto wall from 1943. The district was also the area of the Jewish ghetto from 1940 to 1943. The first part of the tour ends on the Rondo Daszynskiego with the highest density of skyscrapers.
We take the metro to Vistula Boulevard, the biggest hot spot for Warsaw residents and a lesser known tourist corner. In the vicinity there is the Copernicus Centre, the garden on the roof of the Warsaw University Library and Elektrownia Powisle, a shopping centre with a food hall for 600 people and an extremely well-stocked drink bar! There we end the tour.
You see a different Warsaw on this tour, which is not to discredit the other tours in any way. However, we also want people to realise that the Old Town alone is not the city’s landmark. To get to know a city, you have to go out and meet people. And with this tour, we can offer you that.
So let our city guides seduce you, inspire you and win you over to our Warsaw!
