Tour description

At first glance Kraków is charming and beautiful but there are things that lurk beneath the surface. Things that do not come out until it's dark. And so we will meet them when darkness covers the city streets. This will be time for us to tell the city's most sinister secrets and stories. You will learn about the most notorious ghosts, monsters and serial killers, you will get to know the life of a medieval executioner and the tools he used to extract confessions from villains. There will also be stories of forbidden love and terrible punishment. Join us to get to know the dark side of Kraków!

ℹ️ ⚠️ ATTENTION - booking rules

Please note that our free tours are designed for individual travelers and small private groups only. Hence, we do not accept parties of 8 or more people on regular free tours and guides have the right to deny participation to such groups. If you travel in a party of 8 or more please book a private tour in advance.


If you show up at the meeting point with the bigger group our guide will ask you for the payment (8 eur/person) before the tour or cancel your reservation on the spot. To confirm your reservation please arrive 10 minutes before starting. We can not guarantee participation when you will be late.                                  

Please note that multiply bookings (under different names) for 7 people who belong to one group will still be treated as one organized group and the guide has the right to deny participation to such parties.

This policy is implied in the best interest of our individual visitors. 

Please respect our rules.

It was an amazing experience and also highly recommended! The information and stories you learn are not only fictional, but real ones as well, extremely interesting and intriguing. Our guru was fun, kind and easy-going, with humour and proffesionalism at the same time! One of the best activities I have done so far!

This tour was absolutely amazing! We found out about the 'dark history' of Krakow, with many stories about murders and legends about this beautiful city, and discovered some hidden gems of it which otherwise we would miss. Jacek, out guide, was absolutely amazing, fun, and professional. He managed to keep the group's attention all the way to the end, was paying attention to the group's needs and was respectful. Highly recommended!
