What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Krakow Catholic Churches and Monuments

Discover some of Krakow's finest churches such as St Mary's Basilica

Your guide will meet you at your Krakow hotel, where you'll begin with a walk to the city’s Old Town. As your tour is private, the route can be customized to your particular interests. Chat about your itinerary with your guide before making your first stop at the Church of St Anne.

Noted as one of Poland’s most beautiful baroque churches, admire the ornate décor before crossing the Main Square to see St Mary’s Basilica. Hear the history behind its hourly trumpet call, and marvel at the interior’s Gothic jewel: the towering altarpiece carved by German sculptor Veit Stoss.

Continue to one of the oldest churches in Krakow's Old Town, the Church of St Adalbert, before making your way to the Church of St Francis of Assisi and the Bishop’s Palace. See Pope John Paul II’s famous ‘papal window’ where the beloved figure addressed his crowds.

Learn the stories behind the Poor Clare Sisters as you stroll past the Church of Saints Peter and Paul. Afterward, head up the hill to Wawel Royal Castle to soak up secrets about the castle’s former residents. Top off your tour with a climb up to the cathedral’s Sigismund Bell. At an impressive 28,000 pounds (13 tons), it requires 12 bell-ringers to swing it.

After three hours of exploration, your tour will conclude in central Krakow.
