Private tour by a local guide in the most beautiful sites of Krakow
This is the "Highlights of Krakow tour" :-) But never in a hurry, that's for sure! We will take a leisurely walk around the Old Town to see the most beautiful sites of Krakow's Old Town.
You will see the Main Market Square with the Cloth Hall and St. Mary's Church, the district of the oldest Polish university and the former seat of Polish kings on the Wawel Hill.
In general the tour follows so-called Royal Route which retraces the path followed by Polish kings heading for their Residence on the Wawel Hill. It runs across the most magnificent sites of Krakow's Old Town.
The tour starts in the vicinity of medieval city walls - St. Florian's Gate and Barbican, it leads you to the Main Market Square, one the biggest medieval squares in Europe. That's where you can admire the landmarks of Krakow - former center of textile trade - the Cloth Hall, the Town Hall Tower and the most important church of the city - St. Mary's Basilica.
Then the route takes you along the oldest Krakow's streets: through the university district and Grodzka and Kanonicza Streets. It ends up on the Wawel Hill - former Polish Kings' Residence. It's good to spend a while on the hill to see the royal tombs in the Cathedral and courtyard of the Castle of rare beauty.
