Wawer [ˈvavɛr] is one of the districts of Warsaw, located in the south-eastern part of the city. The Vistula river runs along its western border. Wawer became a district of Warsaw on October 27, 2002 (previously it was a part of Praga Południe district, and a municipality earlier).

Wawer borders Praga Południe and Rembertów from the north, Wesoła from the east and Wilanów with Mokotów from the west (across the Vistula).



In 1939, the Wawer massacre occurred here.
