There's nothing wrong with Praga. It isn't lively at night the way central Warsaw is. But there are still things to do in the daytime. The area near the zoo is nice. There's a nice park near the stadium. And the "beach" on the eastern banks of the Wisła get crowded in the summer months. I think it gets overlooked in the tourist sense because it is detached from the main part of the city by the river.
