Full description
Meet your guide by the Florian's Gate and be invited for the fully private sightseeing with all of the city's top sights. Spend a half a day exploring a UNESCO World Heritage listed city. Begin your guided tour with a walk through the Old Town. Listen to stories about the architecture, inhabitants, local history and attractions of Krakow. Walk along Florianska, one of the most famous and most exemplary streets of Kraków, leading straight to the heart of the city – the Main Market Square. Today it tempts with a variety of shops, restaurants, and clubs, while centuries ago it hosted the solemn coronation and funeral processions of monarchs. Admire the Main Market Square, the most important public space in Krakow, the most expansive Market Square of medieval Europe, gathering everything most characteristic of the city and having the most distinctive hallmarks, the most beautiful, the most important, the most charming, the most… Stop by the Collegium Maius and the Jagiellonian University the oldest in Poland and in this part of Europe. Immerse yourself in the culture of Krakow visiting Wawel Hill an ancient centre of power: legendary – connected to Krak or Krakus, the mythical founder of the stronghold and his descendants, and historical: ducal, princely, ecclesiastical, and royal. Be amazed by the castle and the cathedral with a bell tower and catacombs where many Polish monarchs are buried. See the six-metre tall Wawel Dragon statue and stop by the cave on the bank of the Vistula where the legendary dragon inhabited, terrorised the locals and demanded offerings of cattle, though in an alternate version of the tale these were virgins. Heading back down into Old Town, walk along the medieval cobblestone streets to St. Mary's Basilica with a high altar by Veit Stoss (Wit Stwosz), a bugle call and the star strewn murals by Jan Matejko covering the vaulting. Visit Sukiennice - Cloth Hall - full of stalls offering typical Krakow souvenirs. See the defensive walls and Barbican fortress before you part ways with your guide to see the city on your own.
