Praga is situated on the right-bank of the River Vistula. Its history goes back over five hundred years. At the beginning, Praga was an autonomous settlement, and given city status in 1648. It became part of Warsaw in 1791. Today, Praga’s exquisite charm and vivid artistic scene attract crowds of Varsovians and tourists alike.

This walk takes you through the oldest part of the district, allowing the visitor to see Praga’s most interesting monuments (St Florian’s Cathedral, St Mary Madeleine’s Orthodox Church, Matki Boskiej Loretańskiej Church and places connected with the history of Praga’s Jews), which are proof of the historical coexistence of the three religious communities in Praga.
