Street art

Warsaw is a mix of old and new. Taking a walk among impressive skyscrapers and renovated tenement houses you will also pass by very old buildings, nearly ruins, that remind you about the history of this city. While with every year Warsaw gets more and more renovated and modern, striving to leave its past behind, there is something really charming about this combination of striking architectural contrasts.

While waiting for their turn to be renovated or torn down and rebuilt, older buildings and neighborhoods have become a great place for self-expression and street art. It is the perfect way of bringing an old building “back to live” and restoring its charm. Instead of accelerating their walk when passing by, people stop to admire the shapes, colors and talent of „unknown artists”.

The best neighborhood to look for street art in Warsaw is Praga. It is known for old buildings, some of which still have wholes from bullets in their walls. But as you know, old buildings and factories are also a perfect foundation for loft apartments. Therefore with increasing investment and its location being just a bridge away from the city center, Praga slowly becomes an attractive place to live in.

While we could call Praga the biggest “street art gallery”, you can find amazing graffiti in other parts of the city as well. Even in the city center you can still find such old buildings, which is no wonder knowing how destroyed Warsaw once was. Decorated with colorful “paintings” they bring variety and unique character into the scenery of Warsaw.
