Things to do in Krakow Old Town
The Old Town of Krakow is one of the first sites that have made it onto UNESCO's original World Heritage List. The historic central district, known in Polish as Stare Miasto takes you back to medieval times and used to be surrounded by a 3-km long defensive wall with 46 towers and seven main entrances. When exploring, visitors should start with the ‘Royal Route’ which used to be the coronation path of the Polish kings when Kraków served as the royal capital. A lot of the most famous sights lay along this route - from the Florianska Gate to the Wawel Castle.

Reviews Krakow Old Town
“What a great way to get around the various areas of Krakow, and good fun too. A good choice if you want to visit Kazimierz and the Jewish ghetto area as well as just the old town. Highly recommend.”
“A great introduction to Krakow old town. There were just 2 of us and our guide Krzysztof was great, knowledgable and very friendly - a great storyteller. We visited places we would never have known about without a local and doing this on a Sunday evening was very atmospheric.”
“Excellent tour with very knowledgeable guide, who spoke extremely good English. Would definitely recommend.”
