You must have gone to the wrong forum, it's about Poland, not Czech Republic :-) and seriously, I don't think it's dangerous anywhere in Praga.

I think he means the district of Warsaw called Praga, W., surely?

Yea, I know someone who lives there, he goes everywhere and feels safe.

The Czech city is Praha (or Prague or Prag if you wanna be Deutsch about it)

It's clear he's referring to Warsaw east of the Wisła.

Most is OK now. The one really dodgy part a few years ago there is now generally safe.

I don't want to be Deutsch, I'm Polish and in Polish it's Praga :-)

No s***t, it's clear you don't know what is sarcasm.

From smartertravel.com:

Tourists around Warsaw will want to avoid Praga, and travelers in the region will want to stay close to the train station when visiting. The northern part of Praga can be especially dangerous, particularly at night. This is generally considered the poorest part of the city, and there can be a significant amount of crime from time to time.

From smartertravel:

Nothing smart about that website, I'm surprised it doesn't say to skip Warsaw altogether. Apparently downtown Warsaw isn't safe, avoid run down shops and homes because they might be fronts for illicit trade blah blah. I've been to Praga, I felt completely safe. No, I would not go down dark streets there at night alone, but I wouldn't do that in my home town either. One good thing though, at least you're not likely to get gunned down in Praga ;) When were you last there Rich?

Well, to be fair, until a few weeks ago I'd assumed Praga was

a) crumbling kamienice

b) seas of deski

c) areas of post industrial hideousness

d) shady and desperate characters slipping out of and back into the shadows as they carry on their shady and desperate business

My main Praga experience had been in the 90s (when I loved the outdoor bazaar at the stadium) and a few work related visits to an office located around Dworzec Wileński which was a pretty shady area.... at least for Poland.

But I wanted to check out a store selling Hungarian delicacies that I had an address for. The bus turned south by the stadium and was shocked - a pleasant leafy neighborhood with buildings of 3-5 stories, well maintained, full of ethnic restaurants and coffee shops. If I ever need to move to Warsaw I could easily imagine living there...

The northern part of Praga

That's Praga Północ.

Saska kępa

That's Praga Południe.

The Praga district comprises Praga Pólnoc and Praga Połundie. Praga Pólnoc used to be really rough years ago but I lived there for six months and never came to any harm. There were one or two streets where you wouldn't venture at night but there was nothing in those streets to attract a casual visitor or tourist anyway. Both it and Praga Południe have been thoroughly gentrified in the last ten years and are nice places to spend time. There's great shopping and loads of places to eat, beautiful parks etc.

Saska Kępa is returning to its pre-war vibe of being an artsy, bohemian type of neighbourhood, though self consciously so nowadays whereas before the war it was an affordable outlying district for artists to live. There were a number of very innovative modernist buildings constructed there at the time which have survived. It was supposed to be levelled by the Commies to create an industrial area but escaped that fate, thankfully. It would set you back quite a few million to buy one of those villas now. Park Skaryszewski is the local park and it's really beautiful. There are also działki full of flowers and veggies, very pretty.

The two parts of Praga comprise numerous different districts each with slightly different vibe, but they're all ordinary, middle of the road places, nothing especially seedy about them and if you take a look at property prices, you'll see that you can pay as much for an apartment in Praga as you would in any of the neighbourhoods on the other side of the river.

a pleasant leafy neighborhood with buildings of 3-5 stories

There are actually quite a few tower blocks as well but they're nicely landscaped and some of them have a lovely view of the water.

Plenty of new investment in Praga - new malls and housing and the Google campus
