"From the World to Warsaw, from Warsaw to the World" – a tour of the city center in the footsteps of migrants
Do you know where in Muranów the Ukrainian community meets and where Miss Skłodowska lived? We invite you to a tour in the footsteps of people for whom Warsaw became a new home.
We will discover the histories of those who chose to become Warsaw residents – in the past and today, we will visit places devoted to them and created by them. We will talk about those who spent a part of or their whole lives in Warsaw, but also about those who went abroad and became emigrants.

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.
