Kevarim
Jewish cemetery near the Old Powazki. Established in 1809, it is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in the world. Spread over an area of nearly 44,000 square feet (3160 square meters), the cemetery was left largely intact by the Nazis and includes the graves and tombs of a quarter of a million people, including the great Rabbanim of Warsaw as well as many secular giants in literature and the arts.

The Jewish Ghetto
The infamous Warsaw Ghetto, the scene of the only organized uprising.
On the left side of the Praga River, where the Ghetto used to be, you can visit several monuments commemorating the Jews of Warsaw, including the Monument over the Ghetto Heroes at Zamenhof Square, and Umschlagplatz, a memorial raised at the very spot where Warsaw Jews were gathered in 1943, loaded on cattle wagons and transported to the death camp at Treblinka. It is still possible to see how Jews lived in Warsaw ulica Prozna, a street left largely intact from before the Holocaust.

yes .. this was from the intercontinental which is right next to central bus station which is a block from ghetto (or what remains which is basically nothing) there is a pita place, another restaurant called Rambam and very small kosher grocery next to the big shul which is also 3 minute walk from the intercontinental .. so all that was in a few minute walk from each other..

when i was there we paid 9 zloty for a day pass for buses and trams
when u ride the bus they have a similar system to the MTA where u insert ur ticket into a machine...... except that they have a machine by all the doors and i realized we were the only ones paying  ::)
no wonder Europe is broke
we stayed at a hotel called something like Airport Hotel which is actually like an american 3* hotel for around $55 (thank u priceline)
and very small kosher grocery next to the big shul
+1 the only thing i saw was frozen challa and israeli chocolate bars
and while i was there the assistant rabbi tried to recruit me for the new kollel

I think I'm going to go with a driver for the day...I sent out a few emails and will call a driver the Chabad Rabbi recommended...he said to call back and his english sounded decent...

@ E: the bus ride you mentioned, isn't really cheap.

I stayed @ the castle inn, which is a cute cheap place.
