Walking tour in Krakow

Tour Price : 100 USD Duration : up to 4 hours Languages: english

This private tour in Krakow is concerned with the main sights of the so-called city of Polish Kings. It is worth noting that Krakow used to be the capital city of the Polish state and it is still a very important center of education, art and culture. It definitely has much to offer for any kind of tourist as far as it is one of the oldest cities in the whole Poland. It was situated in the 7th century and is practically filled with traces of history.  According to the statistics Krakow is visited by almost eight million people annually.

The main reasons for that are numerous tourist attractions, historical monuments, recreation, religious or business activity. We will start our tour from exploring of the Great Barbican of Krakow. It is one of the main tourist attractions in the city. It dates back from the 16th century and at the beginning it was surrounded by a deep, 30-meter wide, moat. It is connected with the Brama Florianska gate tower and definitely is worth seeing. As your professional private guide in Poland I would also advice you to visit Wawel Cathedral in Krakow. It used to be the coronation site of Polish monarchs while nowadays it is considered to be one of the most important Polish sanctuaries.

The Cathedral is very old and gives shelter to a great number of masterpieces from the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Classicist and Modern epochs. Moreover it is the burial ground for legendary Polish people, royalty, poets, national heroes and other influential figures. Afterwards we will proceed to Virgin Mary’s Basilica, which is located at the central Grand Square.

In all the guidebooks this basilica is said to be the most famous church in Poland. It owes its popularity to the legendary Gothic altarpiece which is carved by Veit Stoss, who is considered to be the greatest sculptor in Europe in the 15th century.
