What to Expect

Combine two of Kraków’s most popular city tours to get a comprehensive picture of the city exploring such neighbourhoods as the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. Meet your guide and a small group of no more than 8 people in central Kraków, in front of The Barbican, a historic gateway leading into the Old Town and one of the few remaining relics of the city’s fortifications. We will enter the area inside former city walls through St. Florian Gate, just like kings and distinguished guests did in the past. You can now admire one of the most picturesque views  in the city – the high towers of the St. Mary’s church at the end of Floriańska Street.

We will delve into charming streets of the Old Town and discover such landmarks as St. Florian Gate, Jagiellonian University, the Princes Czartoryski Museum, where you can admire one of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpieces, the Lady with an Ermine, and the majestic Main Market Square with the Town Hall Tower, the Renaissance Cloth Hall and St. Mary’s Church. The area is full of little cosy cafés, vibrant bars and renowed restaurants and your guide will give you insider tips on the places where local people go to.

Head to the Wawel Castle, Krakow’s icon and the former residence of the kings of Poland. Visit the interior of the cathedral, admire the arcaded renaissance courtyard and take in the views of the city and the Vistula River from the observation deck. Spot the famous Dragon Statue and hear tales of Kraków’s fascinating history. Enjoy a little break to relax of explore the Wawel Hill on your own.

After the break we will continue to Kazimierz – the disctrict of numerous  monuments of Jewish culture, vintage shops and art galleries. We will stroll around the winding cobbled streets that vibrant with cultural life to see the synagogues, including The Old Synagogue – the oldest preserved building of this type in Poland, Schindler’s List movie locations and the squares, including Plac Wolnica and Plac Nowy, that attract hundreds of inhabitants and tourists every day. You will also discover the place where Kraków’s people love to spend sunny afternoons and find the best foodtruck location in the city.

The tour ends on Szeroka Street which was the main square of the former Jewish town and the centre of its life. The street which actually ressembles a square is surrounded by synagogues and small houses, including the one where Helena Rubinstein – a cosmetics entrepreneur – was born. There is no better place in the city to feel an extraordinary atmosphere of the Jewish culture. You can easily return to the Old Town on foot or by tram but we highly recommend staying in Kazimierz to enjoy a cup of coffee or a traditional Jewish-style dinner sitting in a sunny restaurant and listening to Klezmer music.
