About the Tour

Kraków is a city built around mysterious pagan structures and immersed deeply in history, myths and legends. For centuries it has been a seat of Polish rulers and a political center of what once was the biggest empire in Europe – the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It was also a busy, multicultural commercial hub, where one could meet traders and pilgrims from all around the world. But history has not always treated Kraków gently – the city has witnessed wars, pillages, plagues, and natural disasters. It was occupied by Swedes, Austrians, Nazis to name only a few. Miraculously Kraków came out from these disasters almost unscathed. Over a thousand years of history left here a unique collection of breathtaking architectural masterpieces from all periods. For Polish people, Kraków is a source of pride – the foundation of the national identity, traditions, and legendary heritage. Let us go together on this fascinating journey, one you simply cannot miss!


During the tour you will see:

  • medieval city walls and Barbican 
  • Main Market Square with Cloth Hall 
  • St Mary’s church with it’s famous trumpeter 
  • Collegium Maius, main building of the oldest University in Poland 
  • Archbishop Palace and “papal window” 
  • Wawel Hill with the Cathedral and Castle’s courtyard 
  • Wawel’s Dragon 
  • and much more…!
