Description

Start your tour by meeting your guide at the fragments of the city walls and the magnificent St. Florian's Gate. Take a look at the historic Barbican and take a walk along the Royal Route - the same route used by kings and their guests on their way to the castle. Walk through the Main Square - the bustling heart of the city is an ideal place to buy souvenirs, especially in the Cloth Hall, which has been the local marketplace for centuries. Complete your tour with knowledge about St. Mary's Church, which features a magnificent medieval altar carved by Wit Stoss and the bugle call sounds every hour towards the four corners of the world. Walk further along Kanonicza and Grodzka streets, enter Collegium Maius, the oldest building of the Cracoviensis Academy with a charming Gothic courtyard. Then, enter the Wawel Hill, which is the embodiment of Poland's former monarchical glory. At its top, there is the Royal Castle and the 14th-century cathedral, where almost all coronations and funerals of the Polish monarchy took place.
