If you're staying in Krakow and want to explore its beautiful surroundings, then our Vistula River Free Bike Tour is perfect for you! We'll follow the course of Poland's longest river and visit Krakow's lesser-known tourist attractions.
Vistula River Free Bike Tour
At the scheduled time, we'll meet you next to the sculpture of Eros Bendato to start our bike tour around Krakow's hidden gems.
You'll hop on your own bike and then we'll set off from the city's main square and head to the imposing Wawel Castle before cycling west along the picturesque scenery of the Vistula River.
Next, we'll pedal past the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel and cross the Grundwaldzkie Bridge on our way to the Forum Przestrzenie Hotel. After learning all about the history of this former Soviet building, we'll see the family home of Pope John Paul II and visit Villa Odyniec.
Afterwards, we'll head to the Camaldolese Hermit Monastery, which sits atop the Silver Mount. Here, we'll admire the striking contrast of the monastery's white towers against the deep green forest. We'll take a break here and have some lemonade while we enjoy the view.
We'll then hop back on our bikes and ride to the most highly-anticipated item on our tour: the Tyniec fortress-monastery. When we arrive, we'll enter this Benedictine church and see its beautiful Romanesque frescoes.
It'll then be time to cycle back to the starting point, where we'll arrive 3 hours after our departure and say our goodbyes.
