Krakow Walking Tours

Walking tour I
Kazimierz - the best-preserved former Jewish quarter in Europe.

The tour begins with a Neo-Romanesque synagogue called the Temple. Then across New Square - the former commercial center of Kazimierz - we will pass by the Kupa Synagogue, the Isaac Synagogue, the Wysoka (High) Synagogue, and the Stara (Old) Synagogue. Upon reaching Szeroka street, the heart of Kazimierz, we will admire the Remuh Synagogue - the final one on the tour - which is still in use. There is a unique 16th-century cemetery adjoining the synagogue.

Walking tour II
The medieval Old Town, the Wawel Hill with its castle and cathedral.

We will start on the Main Market Square at the Cloth Hall, getting acquainted with the history and mystery behind one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. We will continue on to the old buildings of the Jagiellonian University, where Nicholas Copernicus and the legendary Dr. Faustus both studied. Amongst these is Collegium Maius with its Gothic courtyard. Walking through All Saints’ Square with its Gothic Dominican and Franciscan churches, we will stroll along the Royal Route to Wawel Hill, where, in the arcade courtyard of the castle, we will hear about the history of this former residence of Polish kings and princes. Then on to Wawel Cathedral - the coronation church of the kings of Poland, which contains the royal tombs. On our way back to the Main Square for a coffee break, we will go down the charming Kanonicza Street and see St. Mary’s Church with its famous altar designed by Veit Stoss.
