Meet your professional English-speaking guide in the famous Market Square, located in the heart of Krakow. It's here that we'll learn all about the history of the Town Hall Tower, the Kraków Cloth Hall and St. Mary's Basilica.

Then it's on to the university area, located in the Old Town, the Pope’s window within the Bishop's Palace and the churches of St. Andrew, built between 1079 and 1098 and of St. Peter and St. Paul, built in the baroque style.

Having learnt about Wawel Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and how this hill reflects the history of Poland and we will make our way to the Kazimierz district, Krakow's Jewish quarter

An area known for its thriving cultural atmosphere, both past and present, this area is also characterised by its tragic history during Nazi occupation and the Holocaust. Your guide will tell you all about the city's experiences during World War II as you explore the area, which includes shooting locations from the Oscar-winning film Schindler's List.
