Praga is my favourite part of Warsaw.
Least damaged during the last war it still retains some charm and atmosphere (contrary to the fully rebuilt Old Town). It still retains many pre-war architecture. It has ZOO. It has wild river bank from where you can enjoy beautiful views of the Old Town. The St. Florian Cathedral...
If you wish to experience something different than the overhyped Old Town or vaguely visible remains of the Ghetto, go there. Is it dangerous ? Well, some parts of it may be. Especially after dark, or somewhere in the backyards. But during the day ? I don't think so. I went to school there, and I've been living near Praga for the last xx years (many!). Are there drunkards ? Yes. Are there drunkards in the city center on the other side ? Yes. What's the difference then ?
The only real issue is that indeed, there are very few good restaurants on that side of the river. But... the city center is only a couple of tram stops away.
