About the Tour

 

A city that suffered tremendous losses over the last 100 years. Come and see how it rose like a phoenix from the ashes: experience the invincible spirit of Warsaw and learn about the heroism of its people.

 

Today’s Warsaw is like a patchwork quilt. A few original, grand pre-war buildings; the fully reconstructed and colourful Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; hulking communist architecture and modern skyscrapers. It is different than any other place you’ve seen. The architectural fabric of the city reflects its unique, and often tumultuous, history. Over the centuries, Warsaw has been the setting for many extraordinary events and people: the adoption of the world’s second-oldest democratic constitution in 1791, one of the most decisive battles in history, the music and life of Chopin, and the birth of Marie Skłodowska-Curie, the only person to receive the Nobel Prize in two different scientific fields. The wartime deeds of Hitler and Stalin left an indelible mark on the city.

 

But Warsaw is not only about the past. The thriving cultural scene, theater, music, fascinating museums, world-class restaurants and shops make visiting this city a stimulating experience.

 

During our tour we'll discover both the past and the present. We'll start at Krakowskie Przedmieście at the monument of Nicolaus Copernicus to see one of the most beautiful and lively streets of the city with its astonishing buildings, wide pedestrian areas, restaurants, shops, and greenery, and we'll finish in the Old Town - the historical heart of Warsaw.

 

Come and join our tour to understand Warsaw, Poles and Poland’s role in world history.

¡Un tour fantástico! Varsovia es una ciudad preciosa y llena de historia y, sin duda, nuestro guia Piotr (Piotrek o "Pedro" para los amigos) ha estado más que a la altura. El tour empieza frente al monumento a Nicolás Copérnico. La primera parte del paseo transcurre por la calle Krakowskie Przedmieście, a lo largo de la cual pueden observarse varios lugares emblemáticos de la ciudad (el Palacio Presidencial, la Iglesia de la Santa Cruz, el Hotel Bristol, la Tumba del Soldado Desconocido, etc.). En la segunda parte del tour, tras pasar por delante del Castillo Real, nos adentramos en la "ciudad vieja" para callejear entre sus coloridos edificios y conocer las principales plazas y monumentos de este vecindario (la Plaza del Mercado, la Plaza Kanonia, un fantástico mirador con vistas al Vístula y al barrio de Praga, etc.). El tour termina junto a la Estatua del Pequeño Insurgente, donde pudimos conocer un poco más sobre uno de los episodios más trágicos de la historia varsoviana. Se nota que a Piotrek le apasionan la ciudad y su historia. Las anécdotas históricas y personales y los comentarios en clave de humor hacen que el tour sea muy ameno y que las dos horas y media se pasen volando. ¡Muy recomendado!
