Overview

Combine less formal city sightseeing with visits to Warsaws pubs on this 3 hours night tour with a communist minibus. Be introduced to Warsaw, go where locals go, drink what they drink. Hear exciting anecdotes, learn something about Warsaw and enjoy your night! Three vodka shots are included in the tour price.

The concept of this tour is to join city sightseeing with getting to know Warsaws nightlife and its drinks - its a perfect combination for those who dont have time for, or dont want to do, the daytime tours. With a communist minibus, the guide takes you through the last 70 years of Warsaw history and its drinks. Its the period of tremendous changes: post-WWII outbreak of communism, dark and often funny 60s and 70s, the resurrection of democracy in 90s and fantastic development in the last twenty years. On a warm night, you may spend more time outside, thanks to open-air pubs.

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.

    Mario made the tour extremely fun in addition to presenting Warsaw in an interesting way. He made adjustments along the way and was a perfect way to experience Warsaw during our hen party 🤩

    This was very fun, we had a guide named Mario, he was such good company and just a good time, he made the trip very fun and informative!

    Marek was our tour guide for this trip. Anyone that goes on this trip MUST request him. He was absolutely amazing. The tour itself was fun and a great learning experience, but honestly Marek was the star. He goes above and beyond in his job. He took the time to share additional spots for us to end our trip in Warsaw.

    We had a festive tour with a knowledgeable and personal guide. It feels like a friend that shows you the “must see” things in Warsaw. I recommend doing this in the beginning of a trip to have more ideas of what to further investigate on your trip. This is not a “Stag get drunk” tour, more of a “let’s taste the local cuisine” with a friend.

    Probably one of the best tours I ever tried. The history of Warsaw became real for just a short while. Big thanks to our guide that with his historical knowledge and passion made this tour unforgettable.

    Vi hadde en utrolig bra opplevelse på kveldstur med masse historie, dagsaktuelle spørsmål rundt i byen. Anbefales absolutt!

    A very funny and interesting tour. None of this standard sightseeing tours where you visit and see things you allready know from the internet! Absolutely recommendable.

    We made a late decision to go on an evening tour and what a time we had. We had Marcin and he was so knowledgeable about Poland and all the local history. We stopped multiple times to take in the historic architecture and stopped at a few great local pubs for a drink and a chat. This is an awesome experience and is made even better by the transportation. The mighty Zuk! Truly recommended!

    We had the evening tour last night and we loved it. Since the first email we were very satisfied with the customer service. Very prompt and friendly. Wojtek was amazing, super friendly and knowledgeable and he managed for us to enjoy the tour even when we were awfully jetlagged. We can't thank him enough as he showed us places that we usually wouldn't have gone as they are not as touristy, real Warsaw bars. He also gave us tips for the next few days. This was a wonderful way to start our visit! Thank you so much.

    I can't recommend this tour highly enough! Our guide, Konrad/Conrad was a star! Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and a brilliant sense of humour. Lots of laughs, and plenty of time for reflection. And the wódka.... Avoid the chilli. It nearly killed me. Vote Conrad/Konrad. The next Prime Minister of Poland... Book now.
