Centrum Praskie Koneser, developed by the Liebrecht & wooD Group and BBI Development S.A. in Warsaw’s Praga district, has prepared a comprehensive offer for tourists from Poland and abroad. At Koneser, you can benefit from a wide range of cultural events, taste unique dishes and drinks in restaurants and bars with an atmosphere, and soon you will be able to stop by at the stylish hotel Moxy Warsaw Praga (the Marriott International brand). The Polish Vodka Museum, which operates here, invites you to find out more about the history, traditions and ways of serving our national alcoholic beverage. In addition, Warsaw Tourist Information will be opened at Koneser for visitors to the right bank of the capital.

‘Koneser's revitalization can be compared to the process of creation. We were eager to produce a work that would be authentic, unique, consistent and complete. A work that captivates with its wonderful architecture and offers Warsaw residents and tourists a unique experience and at the same time a new kind of encounter,’ said Magdalena Bartkiewicz-Podoba, General Manager at Liebrecht & wooD Poland, the project investor.

The public Koneser Square, scheduled to be officially opened on the last weekend of September 2018, will offer lots of attractions for tourists. Throughout the year, it will be possible to take part in festivals, fairs, concerts, exhibitions of contemporary art, performances for children, sports events or weekly guided tours of the former vodka factory and its surroundings. In a 19th century historic rectification plant, the world's first Polish Vodka Museum is already open, inviting visitors to an hour-long tour throughout the history of the beverage, combined with tasting. Visitors to Koneser can have a meal at the unique restaurants, such as the ZONI restaurant, the WuWu bistro and the E. Wedel Chocolate Lounge, located in the museum building.

Soon, tourists will be able to check in at the Moxy Warsaw Praga hotel (the Marriott International brand). The hotel has been set up with young people and people young in spirit in mind; people who want to stay in a stylish environment. Moxy Warsaw Praga has 141 rooms and stands apart for its surprising design, very fast and comfortable Wi-Fi and excellent service. Guests will be encouraged to spend time in the common area consisting of several zones and to use convenient services, such as the self-service grab and go catering option, which is available 24/7.

This autumn, Warsaw Tourist Information will be opened at Koneser. It will provide information about the key attractions of the capital, interesting events, as well as offer a free tourist guide and a plan of Warsaw. Tourists will have access to free Wi-Fi, they will also be able to purchase a ticket online and print out e.g. a boarding card.

‘We are pleased to be able to welcome the visitors to the capital soon at the city’s tourist information branch on the premises of Centrum Praskie Koneser. We share the conviction that Koneser will become the tourist heart of the right-bank Warsaw, whose charm will be discovered by more and more travellers from Poland and all over the world,’ said Paweł Moras, Director of the Warsaw Tourist Office.

Koneser is a place where the creative spirit of the Praga district blends perfectly with modernity by contributing to the tourist, cultural and social life of the city; a place that is inextricably connected with Warsaw as part of its right-bank heritage.
