Tour description

All in one tour of the Warsaw historical city centre. Covers a wide range of different topics: monarchy, partitions, world war 2, and communist regimes. 

  • The first half of the tour covers the Royal Route, which is the most elegant Warsaw street. Here in the 17th and 18th centuries, wealthy noblemen were building their luxurious residences, and powerful religious orders were erecting their baroque churches, here in the 19th century Chopin lived and Marie Curie was studying, here the most important events in Polish post-war history were taking place.
  •  In the second half of the tour, you will explore the 20th-century city centre with the most iconic Warsaw building: the Palace of Culture, the famous gift from Stalin to the People’s Republic of Poland, aimed to reshape Warsaw’s historical city centre and give Warsaw a new communist identity.

We really enjoyed the tour with Gawel. He not only briefly went through the history of Poland and Warsaw but also picked some interesting or funny stories. The tour was both amusing and educational. Can recommend!
