The Praga area is as mentioned earlier on the right bank of the Wisla.
With public transport it can be reached with bus 160 from Centralna to the stop 'Park Praski' or with the metro to stop 'Dworzec Wilenski'.
There is an old vodka factory (Koneser) on Ul. Zabkowska 27/31.
There is a bear enclosure in the Park Praski.
And the zoo is next to the Praski Park :
Ul. Ratuszowa 1/3
Open 9-18 on week days and 9-19 on the weekend.

I am definitely going to Zyrardow. It is an old textile town, supposedly the only factory town in Europe.
Some pictures can be seen on its homepage:

It's 45 km west of Warsaw.
30 min on the fast trains (TKL, IR, IC) and 50 min on the slow ones (KM).
The fast trains leave from Warszawa Centralna and the KM ones from Warszawa Srodm which is adjacent to Centralna.
Very frequent trains - minimum every half hour.

Only the KM trains stop in Milanowek on the way.
