Full Tour Description
We start our Krakow Walking Tour off in the heart of Krakow’s beautiful Old Town, just a few minutes walk from Europe’s biggest Medieval market square. From here we’ll set out to discover some of Krakow’s most famous sights – St Mary’s Basilica (outside only), Cloth Hall, Rynek, Town Hall, Jagiellonian University and the Franciscan Church.
Krakow’s Old Town
Your guide will be sure to give you an introduction to Poland’s history and rich culture, and we’ll bring the city to life for you with tales of the characters that have made Krakow and Poland the majestic places they are today. For those keen to get off the beaten track a little we’ll explore the winding cobblestone streets of Krakow’s Old Town, which contain hidden gems and lesser-known attractions.
Next, we’ll head down to the bohemian Kazimierz district to learn all about Krakow’s Jewish community and how it’s changed throughout the city’s history. You’ll see the oldest synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery and Remu’s Synagogue (all sights outside only) – where you’ll learn how the contributions made by the Jews from this area have contributed so much to the city as it stands today. At this point, we’ll stop at a cafe for a refreshment break where you’ll taste some delicious local specialties.
For the final leg of the Krakow Walking Tours, we’ll climb the slope up to Krakow’s Castle area – the Wawel. Here you’ll learn the legend of the dragon and become acquainted with the most important royals from Poland’s history. You’ll hear how they made Krakow the city it is today and get a sneak peek into the grand palace courtyards, the castle and the cathedral (outside only) and finish your tour with a view of Krakow and the River Vistula.
All our Krakow Walking Tours run with small groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants. This makes them interactive and personal and gives you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide. You can also hit them up for local tips and hints of where to go and what else to do.
