      Stop At: Palm Tree, Plac de Gaulle, Warsaw 00-001 Poland

      Here our guide will take you through the history of communism in Warsaw. The place is special - you will stand right at the front of communist party HQ. 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.

      Duration: 20 minutes

      Stop At: Praga Polnoc, ul.Zabkowska, Warsaw Poland

      For decades Praga district street was not a friendly place, gently speaking. It became famous for the illegal production of alcohol and all kinds of businesses related to the black market.

      Today the transformation of the district is progressing, new apartment buildings are under construction, but you can still find the best vodka in the city! Nowadays it is legal, off course.

      Duration: 20 minutes

      Stop At: Zabkowska Street, Zabkowska, Warsaw Poland

      Considered one of the most interesting tourist destinations, it is famous for historical buildings, namely tenement houses that were built at the turn of the 20th century. Ząbkowska Street is a busy place with many restaurants and bars. In most of them, one can try Polish and Czech specialities at a very low price in comparison with other districts of Warsaw. Ząbkowska Street is a student, tourist and hipster-friendly place. It has become an artist hub, where many musicians and painters are still looking for inspiration.

      Here you get your second shot of vodka.

      Duration: 20 minutes

      Stop At: Vistula Boulevards, Generala George_a Smitha Pattona, Warsaw 00-401 Poland

      (This part is available for summer only)
      Do you know that drinking in public is illegal in Poland? Well, that upsets us too. Nevertheless, lawyers found a loophole and prooved, that riverside is not a public space since it’s a part of the river bottom. Brilliant!

      Here you get the third shot of vodka.

      Duration: 30 minutes

      Stop At: Old Town, Warsaw Poland
