5. Krakow: the Old Town and the Wawel Castle Guided Tour
Take a guided walking tour of Krakow and discover the history of Poland along the Royal Route in Old Town. Cross the city from north to south and discover all the places that connect power with prestige. Enter into cathedrals, visit the Wawel Castel, and retrace the step of Polish Kings and Queens.
Meet your guide and step onto the 'Royal Route,' the path that winds from the Florian Gate to the Royal Castle on Wawel Hill. Be transported back into past centuries, when Krakow was Poland's capital, and see all the significant sights.
Admire as you walk the Church of St. Mary, the Market Square with the Passage Rows of Sukiennica, the University Quarter, and the Franciscan Monastery. Walk as though you are royalty, and enter into St. Peter and Paul's Cathedral.
Finally, arrive at Wawel Hill itself, and experience the castle and cathedral with tickets and your guide included. Learn all about the history of the Royal Chambers, gaze at the portraits, and look through all the things they left behind.
Use your imagination and see the Monarchs of Poland dancing, flirting, and making all the crucial decisions for the country.
In the museum and the Cathedral, experience the spirit of Old Poland and understand a country whose citizens strongly cultivated the Catholic religion while at the same time longed for the pleasures of life.
