About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Stacja Muranow, ul. Gen. Wladyslawa Andersa 13, Warsaw 00-159 Poland

The Muranów district was build just after the war on the rubble of a densely built-up and vibrant Jewish district of Warsaw. Muranów is today a souvenir of the architecture and ideology of socialist realism.

The Venetian origin of the Muranów name is a bitter irony of history, because the word "ghetto" was used for the first time in Venice in 1516.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Palace of Culture and Science, Plac Defilad 1, Warsaw 00-110 Poland

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", or even "Stalin's dick".

The permanent residents of the Palace are cats that live in the basement. Animals have their guardian who cares about them. In the highest part of the Palace, peregrine falcons live, which just below the spire, have their nest erected. They have been there since 1998. A pair of falcons have young children there. In the Internet users' competition, the young falcons were given the names: Bazyl, Orion and Wawa. A little lower in towers at the height of the 15th floor, the kestrels found their asylum. And on the level of the 6th floor, on the roof of the Studio Theater, among the melliferous bushes, there is an apiary of urban bees.

Duration: 15 minutes
