What You Can Expect

Small-Group Krakow Old Town Walking Tour Including Rynek Glówny, Mariacki and Wawel Cathedral

Mariacki Church

Meet your guide in central Krakow to begin your 3-hour tour. Gaze up at one of the oldest churches in Poland, the 11th-century St Adalbert Church, before following your guide across the city’s main square, constructed in 1257.

Make your way over to St Mary's Basilica, famous for its hejnal (bugle call) that rings out on the hour from the top of the church’s tallest tower. Then, travel inside the square's historic Cloth Hall. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of exotic imports from the east, including spices, silk, leather and wax, while Krakow itself exported textiles, lead and salt.

Venture next to Wawel Hill, Krakow's must-see attraction. Journey up to the top to spot the Wawel Royal Castle, the kings’ seat for more than 500 years.

Afterward, head inside neighboring Wawel Cathedral, where you’ll see the Royal Sigismund Bell. Learn about the bell’s fascinating history from your guide, dating back to 1520. At an astonishing 28,000 pounds (13 tonnes), it requires the efforts of 12 bell ringers to swing it!

Your tour will conclude on Wawel Hill, where you can continue exploring Krakow independently.

Our tour guide was Conrad and he was absolutely brilliant. The walk was a steady pace and made the most of all sights. He made us love Krakow even more.

The tour was great, and our guide Jack was fantastic! He is clearly very passionate about his home town of Kraków, and made all of the history come alive with very interesting and entertaining stories. We walked for 3 hours in -10° Celsius, but the beautiful town and great guide made it so worth it!
