Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palace of culture and science, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Building and surrounding neighborhood (without entering the building).
The Palace of culture and science is the undisputed symbol of Warsaw. The Palace was built in 1952-1955 as a gift from the Soviet Union to the people of Poland.
Varsovians still commonly use nicknames to refer to the Palace, notably "Beijing", "clown", "nightmarish dream of a drunk confectioner", "Stalin's syringe", "small but stylish". Other less common names include "the Elephant in Lacy Underwear", "Russian wedding cake".

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Grzybowski Square, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Fragment of former Jewish Ghetto. A view on the Palace of Culture and Science.
Warsaw was divided into many small towns by the end of the 18th century - a jurydyk, whose owners decided about their character. Plac Grzybowski was established as the market of the Grzybw jurydyka in the 17th century, it was one of the first private production and marketing markets, and was located at the hub of the city. On his example, you can study how city squares work when they create a network of interconnectedness.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Plac Marszalka Jozefa Pilsudskiego, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Tomb of the unknown soldier.
Marshal Jzef Pisudski Square (formerly Saski Square and Adolf-Hitler-Platz and Victory Square) - monumental, extensive square with symbolic, historical and architectural value.The patron of the square is Marshal Jzef Pisudski (1867-1935), independence activist, head of state, commander-in-chief of the army and marshal of Poland.

Stop At: Praga Polnoc, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Drive around the district and shorts walks.
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 Wadysaw IV Vasa. It was joined to Warsaw at the end of 18th century. Its the only district which was not destroyed during WWII.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: PGE National Stadium, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Before 2008 on the PGE National Stadium place was the 10th-Anniversary Stadium, opened in 1955. The Stadium until dusk PRL served as the most representative sports facility in the country.
The Stadium was constructed mostly with rubble from buildings destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.
In 1983, due to technical problems, the stadium was abandoned. In 1989 the stadium was turned into an outdoor market known as Jarmark Europa, which became Europe's largest open-air market.

Pass By: Palm Tree, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Communist Party HQ, Palm Tree.
Central Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party was the central ruling body of the Polish United Workers' Party, the dominant political party in the People's Republic of Poland (1948-1990). After 1989, the Warsaw Stock Exchange entered the former Headquarter of the Polish United Workers' Party. The House of the Party has become the place of the rebirth of Polish capitalism. History once again sneered at the past.
A rumour circulates around Warsaw that the Palm Tree is a gift from the city of Jerusalem for Aleje Jerozolimskie in Warsaw, that in this way Israeli Jews wanted to show Christians Polish how a real Christmas tree looks like.
As the Polish expression hit by a palm tree refers to something unthinkable, a behaviour that verges on being silly, even idiotic, the project thus embodies substantial humour and irony, which saves it from linear reading and suggests something that escapes palpable understanding.

Stop At: Klaps (Pawilony), Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Pawilony pubs are optional, since it's a daily selection of pubs

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Plac Konstytucji, Warsaw, Mazovia Province, Central Poland

Socialist Realism.
The Square was constructed in the initial post-war years as the main element of social realist urban project. Together with the Palace of Culture and Science, it was the main architectural social realist investment of Warsaw in 1949-1956. Its name comes from the Stalinist constitution adopted in communist Poland.

    Awesome tour with Mark! He showed us some of the more up and coming places in Warsaw, and gave a really interesting history on the city. The tour was supposed to end by 22:30 but we didn't finish until after 23:00. Highly recommended!

    This was Ace fun and the guide was a nice guy. Would recommend, be careful a rival company is mimicking this tour and we met disgruntled tourists who had not been picked up from their scheduled departure point. Good value for money :
