Old School Warsaw

Old School Warsaw

Let’s skip the mainstream tourist attractions this time. We want you to discover the colorful, curious Warsaw: the remains of its communist history and the turbulent decade of aggressive capitalism that followed.
Starting with Praga – a quarter that was the underground, the polar opposite of a modern capital city. There, you will find the oldest market square in town – Bazar Rozyckiego – has been operating there for almost one hundred and fifty years (even under Soviets!) and still gives you a glimpse of local fashion, customs and slang. Step off the bazaar and find yourself surrounded by the hundred-years-old brick houses of the former criminal quarter, now housing hipster cafes, independent galleries and amateur theaters (“Koneser Factory”) or lofts. Polish Soho? Might be.
Then, let us move back downtown. Have you ever heard that those communist freaks loved weird monuments and sculptures? You may have, but we bet you didn’t expect to have an opportunity to instagram your photos with the statues of a miner, a farmer, a construction worker or a vendor woman.
We know, better than anyone, that food is often the highlight of a trip. That’s why our truly passionate, truly Polish and truly enthusiastic guide knows well where can you get the best dumplings in the neighborhood, and will get you to a Milk Bar to prove it. Well, you might not have heard about them, but they were communist fast foods. No way, did something like that ever exist? Yes, it did, and it still does. Last, but not least – for the whole tour, you get a really cool ride. Namely, a car at least twenty five years old, manufactured behind the Iron Curtain, and still operative. Wanna jump in?

My father and I recently returned from our Ultimate Poland tour and we really cannot express how impressed we were with the RealPoland coordination, staff, accommodations, food, local guides and transportation. The itinerary was filled with visits to key historic and cultural sites along with some fun activities like making our own Polish pottery and a pierogi workshop - admittedly, my father and I still need to work on these skills. The accommodations were top class European standard hotels. Breakfast each day was provided in the hotels and dinners were pre-planned at various interesting restaurants in whichever city or town we happened to be staying. Lunch was on us, this may seem daunting but the tours are arranged so that a convenient lunch break happens in a square or Old Town area with an ample choice of cafes and restaurants. As for the Polish cuisine, don’t expect kielbasa and pierogis for every meal - they like to mix it up for you.

Our original intent for taking the tour was to learn more about our Polish heritage. We asked to add an extra day on the end so that we could visit my great grandparents village - the Real Poland staff took care of everything for us, an extended itinerary with hotel, transportation and a local guide.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the beautiful county of Poland. It's clean, safe and very affordable. Additionally, the staff at RealPoland are amazing - especially all of the "Magdas". If you are considering a trip to Poland and are worried about getting around or finding the right tour I would highly recommend RealPoland they are first class.

Natalia' and Magda's quick responsiveness was tremendous! Overall, my total xperience with Real Poland was excellent. They were helpful during setting up my tour plans, and also very helpful when we had to cancel. Natalia researched my grandfather and found lots of information about him that I did not know. I am satisfied with the work she did and I look forward to traveling to Poland in the future. I hope to visit the area where he was from and maybe meet some of my relatives.
