The essential Kraków sights with a private guide

The traditional stroll around the Old Town which shows all important historical monuments located along so called The Royal Route. With a help of your personal guide, you will get to know lots of interesting facts and anecdotes about Kraków and its history.


The walk begins by St Florian's Church at Matejki Square, leads by the Krakow Barbican, through the main entrance to the town, St Florian's Gate, along Florianska Street, to the Main Square. After seeing the Square and around (incl. the Cloth Hall, St. Mary's Church, Town Hall Tower, Collegium Maius - the oldest part of the Jagiellonian University) we go further along Grodzka Street to the Royal Castle on the Wawel Hill. On the way we see the Bishop's Palace and the famous Pope's Window, Franciscan's & Dominican's churches and Canon's Street - the most scenic of all streets in the Old Town.

A Recent Review of this tour

Grezegorz was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and flexible. Last minute foot problem caused some changes to be made and Grezegorz was inventive and attentive. He gave us a wonderful introduction to the city of Krakow. Highly recommend him. Thank you! Regards, ROSEMARY BURKI
