Krakow Old Town

Highlights: Wawel Hill, Royal Cathedral, courtyard of the Royal Castle, Royal Way, University Quarter, Fraciscans Church, Main Market Square, Cloth Hall, St. Mary’s Church

During this tour we discover Krakow – the royal city and the cultural capital of Poland. Seeing the historical sites, churches that are the real treasuries of art pieces, charming corners, or famous cafes, you capture the unique spirit of the city!

The Old Town of Krakow is a picturesque mosaic of medieval, renaissance and baroque architecture, where every single church or old tenements seem to be a real art treasury! It is the royal city, the cultural capital of Poland and one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. It was chosen to be added to UNESCO World Heritage List as one of the first 12 sites in the world!

Walking around, we reveal all these magic places. During the tour we admire all the highlights of the Old Town: the medieval fortifications, Main Market Square (the largest medieval square in Europe), splendid St. Mary’s Basilica (with the biggest medieval altar of Europe!), the Cloth Hall (famous among souvenirs hunters) and the Wawel Hill with its magnificent Royal Castle and the Cathedral – the main Coronation church of the Polish kings. We also drop into the students Quarter to see the oldest Polish university – the Jagiellonian University and a marvellous courtyard of Collegium Maius building.
