Eastern Warsaw is comprised of the Varsovian districts of Targówek [1], Rembertów [2], Wawer [3], and Wesoła [4].

Understand[edit]

Rembertów[edit]

Rembertów [5] is a district Warsaw. Originally, it was a settlement created for the workers of the Warsaw-Moscow railway and then, a training ground for the military. It has been a part of Warsaw since 1957, but it doesn't look very much like a district of a big city to this day. Rembertów is further divided into Kawęczyn-Wygoda, Nowy Rembertów and Stary Rembertów.

Targówek[edit]

Targówek [6] is a district of Warsaw. It is further divided into Bródno. Bródno-Podgrodzie, Elsnerów, Targówek Fabryczny, Targówek Mieszkaniowy, Utrata and Zacisze.

Wawer[edit]

Wawer [7] is a district of Warsaw. It is the most rural district and this has some advantages unless you need to commute. It is also the biggest district of Warsaw in terms of area. It is further divided into: Aleksandrów, Anin, Falenica, Marysin Wawerski, Miedzeszyn, Międzylesie, Nadwiśle, Radość (meaning "happiness"), Sadul, Wawer proper and Zerzeń.

Wesoła[edit]

Wesoła [8] is the youngest district of Warsaw. It mostly consists of low-rise residential housing. The Polish word wesoła means "happy". Wesoła is further divided into Stara Miłosna, Wesoła-Centrum, Wola Grzybowska and Zielona-Grzybowa.
