The Praga district, located on the right bank of the Vistula River, is a part of the oldest areas in Warsaw featuring a community from diverse cultures, ethnicities and religions. This particular are was not destroyed during World War II and as a result, it is considered the most authentic part of the city.
The district history until 1989 was linked to the production industry and since the collapse of communism, the liberal economy forces started to reshape city structure. For many years the transformation of the oldest parts in the Praga district was left aside keeping the status of the urban reserve of 'old-time Warsaw'. Today Praga District is the target of the large-scale urban rehabilitation scheme of the city of Warsaw as well as several grass-roots and top-down activities and projects.
