Krakow visiting: 4 squares, 3 districts and Vistula river. Duration: 4-5h.
Walking this route, you will see Krakow with all its most important monuments. Quite like a standard route, but… not exactly. We will go through different streets, generally not known to the tourists. You will discover “hidden” Krakow visiting its picturesque, charming corners, filled with quiet, cosy cafes. The walls and buildings which remember old times of richness and gold. You will hear stories from the past: political position of Poland in the world, Poles’ connection with the major houses in Europe, dark times of the occupation, independence and the II World War, communism and “V” – “Victory”, the symbol of Freedom. You will experience the history, and nothing will be left out. That’s our promise. And while meeting with the past, you will visit the most beautiful districts of Krakow: The Old Town, Jewish District Kazimierz and Podgorze – with the remnants of ghetto and Plaszow former Work Camp … And after that, we will have a coffee by Vistula river and see the charming Bridge of the Lovers. Feel invited!
