The author discusses the myth of the Praga district in Warsaw, and mentions fashionable publications and photographic albums promoting a nostalgic approach to this part of town. With this often natve and simplifying description as his point of departure he goes on to propose a narration about the places and events comprising a contemporary image of Praga, based on his own biography. The author does not evade nostalgia and enchantment with Praga, but at the same time he robs the portrait of all illusions of romantic idealisations. The text depicts the life of the bazaars, drinking dens, and streets of old right-bank Warsaw, together with its brutality, poverty and polluted rawness; nonetheless, the author remains capable of delighting in the beauty of a world that is no more.
