The POLIN Museum and the Multicultural Center in Warsaw invite everyone to another original tour prepared by the participants of a several-week-long course for city guides and migrants.


This time, we invite you to a tour of Praga – a district with its own character. It is going to be a tour during which we will describe the multicultural nature of this unusual district, find out who contributed to the development of this part of Warsaw, evoke the spirit of history and have a look at the city's contemporary image.


Guides:

  • Agnieszka Dzik – she has lived in Warsaw since her birth, she works at a corporation, but her passion is Warsaw – its people, history, and historical sites; she completed a city guide course.
  • Artur Jakubowski – a Warsaw city guide since 2007, he is fascinated with Warsaw's history and historical sites as well as the changes that take place in the city. He continues his family tradition of Warsaw tour guides.
  • Izabela Kiedrowicz – a courier, a Warsaw guide, a graduate of archaeological studies at the University of Warsaw.

October 23, 2016, 2 PM - 4 PM, free admission. We meet at the main entrance to the St. Mary Magdalene Orthodox Church (52 Solidarności Ave.).The tour will last until 4 PM and will end at the LOTTE-WEDEL Factory. Language: Polish.

The tour was prepared as part of the "Wielowarszawa – kultury, przestrzenie, nasze historie" (MultiWarsaw – cultures, spaces, and our histories) course for city guides and migrants. During several weeks of the course that was filled with meetings and workshops, the participants developed intercultural competencies and broadened their knowledge of Warsaw, including its multicultural heritage and contemporary diversity. Four Warsaw sightseeing paths were created as part of the course.

The “MultiWarsaw – cultures, spaces, and our histories” course is part of the “Jewish Cultural Heritage” project, the “Faces of Diversity” component. Supported by Norway grants and EEA grants offered by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
