About The Krakow Walking Tour
This guided walk aims to open up historic Krakow by focusing on the city’s main centres of interest: the Old Town, and the Royal Citadel of Wawel. The walk lasts for approximately 3 hours.
The walk begins at the city’s medieval gate, and follows the path of the Royal Way – the ancient route by which kings made their progress through the city. It will take in the major sites between here and the castle, including the Barbican, the Church of St. Mary’s, the Market Square and many hidden treasures which lie along the way.
The next phase of the walk will be Wawel Hill – the spiritual home of the nation and the culmination of the Royal Way. Here we will look at the splendid Castle and cathedral (climbing the mythical bell-tower and exploring the crypts are also a worthwhile option). Before leaving Wawel there is also the possibility of leaving through the cavernous Dragon’s Den – the home of a swashbuckling legend about a dragon-slaying prince who founded the city of Krakow. (During the 17th century this cave was the home of an equally renowned brothel, and it is said that Kings themselves were amongst the noble guests).
The walk itself is highly flexible and can easily be tailored to your personal interests – detours are a natural part of the tour!
We hope that after completing the walk, the city will have come alive in all its glory.
