Praga is the only district which was not destroyed during the Second World War and where the old Warsaw was preserved – the old language, culture and lifestyle. Situated on the right side of the Vistula river it is called “the Asian part of Warsaw” because time passes here in its own slower and more intended way.
It is dangerous and inspiring at the same time. One says that everybody in Praga was in prison, is in prison or will be there someday. Other people say that the real Warsaw is only there. Praga is also a mecca of artists and a centre of alternative art.
Sens Nonsensu – a little pub in the heart of Praga – gathers all senses and nonsenses of this district in one cozy place. Sitting here you feel like you’re in grandma’s house – with red wallpapers, wooden furniture and an old piano. The owners sell a lot of typical Polish alcohol and food here. You can taste original beers from small breweries and mulled wine with raspberries and orange.
We really recommend the home-made lard with pork scratchings – there’s a secret why Polish people can drink so much alcohol and not get drunk! A lot of foreigners living in Warsaw come here because – as they say – in places like this they can touch the soul of Warsaw.
