As trained historians and travellers we enjoy wandering around the world. But from afar we understand more how unique Warsaw is. It takes only few steps here to move from a baroque-era palace to Soviet housing, from a park to a shimmering skyscraper. Our city’s tough-but-fascinating history is inscribed on the building walls and if you know where to look, you can easily read it. At WAWstep we know how to do it and we’d love to share our experience and favourite spots with you. Ready to join us on a tour?
