Morskie Oko Park Tour

The sunny weather seems to get acquainted with Warsaw and keeps brightening our days with a lovely, warm and springtime air. Ideal conditions to go for a tour and learn something new about the capital city.

It happened that today the tour was about the old part of Mokotow district, the “residential” area where in the past a lot of aristocrats had their properties, including the ruling families. Here’s a map with the area close to Morskie Oko park, which we explored.

Luckily, this part of Warsaw wasn’t that damaged during the war, as it was the place where German soldiers and police resided.Thanks to this, we can now admire the beautiful architecture dating back to 19th century.  There are also several of monuments commemorating the victims of Warsaw Rising. Our guide, Daniel Euchaust, who is a big fan of Warsaw and in his group on Facebook shares all he knows about the city, gave us a  great history lesson while we were walking down the streets of Mokotow.

I’m leaving you a small photo gallery from the tour. Enjoy 🙂
