The neighborhood of Praga is the least known and least visited neighborhood in Warsaw. It's located across the river and bridges you take to get there are enormous, so it's more than a short walk. Going there at night is not recommended, but during the day it's the most trendy neighborhood in the city, with art galleries, craft shops, trendy stuff, young Polish designers have workshops there. It has a very old Orthodox church. It's not suitable for those ve are only visiting Warsaw once. There are a lot of famous monuments in the neighborhood of Prague, these musicians are found in one of the most important places in the neighborhood. There is a flower shop just behind and is very close to the Church of St. Michel. The musicians give much play to take photographs of the monuments that are around. It is located on the street Jagiellońska 15.
Nowy Swiat Street, or New World, is the commercial center of Warsaw and one of the most popular shopping streets in the world. It was destroyed during the Second World War and rebuilt in the 50s. It's not your typical shopping street with neon lights and loud music; it's a street to walk and admire the neoclassical-looking buildings. It is part of the royal road that the kings of Poland used to go back and frother from their summer palace to their winter palace.
This street is one of the most beautiful in Warsaw and one of the most important in the ancient center (Stare Miasto). It runs from the Castle to Market Square, where the famous Mermaid is (symbol of the city) and passes in front of 2 of the most famous churches in the city, one of them is the Cathedral of St. John. The buildings are beautiful and although, like most of the city, they are reconstructed, they have charm and must have the original, colors, balconies and ornamentation. It's also ideal to find souvenirs.
The center of Warsaw is not just about Rynek Square, there are many streets and alleys full of charm, but the key is to stroll through them and wander without any destination. I have been to Warsaw more than 15 times and I have only been to Rynek Street once! Incredible but true. I like Piwna Street because despite being very central, there is hardly anyone on the street, (in fact it was the middle of July and I was the only one walking down the street). There are antique shops, a couple of bookshops and a church at the end of the street which looks like a tower. It has some beautiful courtyards, some with wrought iron railings, others finished in stone or wood, though much was rebuilt after the invasion of the Nazis.
I have been many times to Rynek Square and around the Barbican ... but had never been to this street! It is the parallel street to the Rynek from the Middle Ages and until the second half of the eighteenth century was the city dump, with accumulating garbage and the waste of the inhabitants of the city, though Warsaw was much smaller back then. Now is a viewpoint from which you can see the river and the Prague neighborhood, plus the National Stadium and the Cathedral of St. Michael. And despite being in the center, it is a very peaceful place to enjoy the beautiful views!
