Stop At: Old Town, Warsaw Poland
Get to know the history of Warsaw from its cradle to modern days. The Old Town was established in the 13th century. Initially surrounded by an earthwork rampart, prior to 1339 it was fortified with brick city walls. The town originally grew up around the castle of the Dukes of Mazovia that later became the Royal Castle. Surrounding streets feature medieval architecture such as the city walls, the Barbican and St. John's Cathedral.
Praga is one of the oldest districts in Warsaw. Through the centuries, Warsaw's right-bank was an independent town. In 1648 it was granted municipal rights by the king Władysław IV Vasa. It was joined to Warsaw at the end of 18th century. It’s the only district which was not destroyed during WWII.
Considered one of the most interesting tourist destinations, it is famous for historical buildings, namely tenement houses that were built at the turn of the 20th century. Ząbkowska Street is a busy place with many restaurants and bars. In most of them, one can try Polish and Czech specialities at a very low price in comparison with other districts of Warsaw. Ząbkowska Street is a student, tourist and hipster friendly place. It has become an artist hub, where many musicians and painters are still looking for inspiration.
