What You Can Expect

Small-Group Krakow Old Town Walking Tour Including Rynek Glówny and Kazimierz

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.

After exploring the Old Town, take a break to sample some delicious Polish desserts and coffee. Then continue to the Kazimierz district to see the Jewish synagogues and cemetery, and learn about the history of the area. Make your way next to Wolnica Square, home to the gothic Corpus Christi Church.

From Kazimierz, return to the Old Town. Your tour will end beneath Wawel Castle, the royal residence of Polish princes and kings since the 10th century. If you are interested in a visit to the Castle, choose the Wawel Castle option on this tour and you will be taken on a fascinating guided tour of this stunning building.

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!
