Krakow History Walking Tour Itinerary

Meet your professional English-speaking guide in the famous Floriańska Street, or St Florian's Street, located in the heart of Krakow's historic centre. At the start of the tour, each visitor will be given a free map so that they can follow the architectural layout of the city while learning about its history.

Begin your walking tour of the former Polish capital taking a stroll down the Royal Route. This road starts at one end of the Old Town and passes through picturesque streets featuring the city's most important monuments. Spot Medieval fortifications, Gothic-style churches and Renaissance buildings.

The Royal Road leads to Wawel, a hill overlooking Krakow that is home to an architectural complex with buildings that date back to 970 AD. From an observation deck on Wawel Hill, you'll enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the city centre, as well as admiring the magnificent Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral.

Continue your historic route in the direction of Krakow's Jewish Quarter, also known as the Kazimierz District. 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 further into the Podgorze District. The site of the former Nazi Jewish Ghetto, this neighbourhood is home to the Ghetto Heroes Square monument.

Your tour will end outside Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory (entrance not included), now the location of two museums, including a permanent exhibition which showcases the testimonies of Krakow residents during the Second World War.
