What makes this tour special

On this 4 hour tour of Old Town, you will receive the ultimate Krakow experience. You will journey on the Royal Route - a route that was used by kings and celebrities during their time in Krakow. 

Krakow City Centre

Starting at Barbican Castle, you will then head into Krakow’s Main Square where you will be treated to grand facades, the gigantic Town Hall Tower, exciting shops and much more. If you’re looking for something -- Main Square has it! Next, you will be greeted by the marvellous Florian’s Gate, another Gothic Tower and arguably the most famous of its kind in Poland. Continuing on the Royal Route, you will see some of Krakow’s most famous attractions -- St. Mary’s Basilica, Planty Gardens and Cloth Hall will all be there for you to feast your eyes on.

A Royal Castle

On a little break from the Royal Path, you will even experience Krakow’s “Off the Beaten Track” by stepping into the Jagiellonian University's oldest building -- Collegium Maius -- to see its extravagant lecture halls and communities. Our final stop, only the most appropriate for such a Royal experience, will be Wawel Hill. Perched on top of the hill are the Wawel Castle and Cathedral. Both were once the centres of political power in Krakow and now you will get to re-live that experience. 

By the end of this tour, you will have hopefully grasped the historical and cultural framework of the city and enjoyed a large variety of anecdotes prepared by our tour guides specifically for you!
