Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Praga Południe is a borough of Warsaw located on the east bank of the Vistula River. It is part of a greater Praga region encompassing the older suburbs East of the river. The area of today's Praga Południe has been inhabited since at least the 7th century. There are traces of settlements established earlier than the Warsaw itself. However, the swampy and often flooded terrain was deserted as soon as Warsaw was founded. Since the 16th century it was again populated, but due to lack of communication with Warsaw (until the 19th century there were no permanent bridges across the Vistula at Warsaw) it was an unimportant suburb. It shared the fate of a greater area named Praga, which was the easternmost suburb of Warsaw. In the 17th century one of areas of present Praga Południe was turned into a military camp. In the 18th century part of the area was named Saska Kępa (literally Saxon Rise) after the Saxon Guards of the Kings of Poland stationed there.
