Tour no. 1
For over a thousand years, Cracow has been the center of science, culture and art in Poland and our city sightseeing tour is a fine introduction to this historic city. The tour begins with a short walk along the streets of the former Jewish district of Kazimierz. Next, Wawel Hill, crowned by Wawel Castle and Wawel Cathedral which was the seat of royal power up till the 17 c. The Castle was home to many Polish kings and queens and the royal crypts in the Cathedral are their final resting place, along with several other Polish heroes. A walk up Grodzka street leads you to the heart of Cracow, the Rynek Glowny, or Main Market Square. There, the large Cloth Hall is the perfect place for shopping for local souvenirs. Our last sightseeing stop is the twin-spired St. Mary's Church with its famous medieval altar by Wit Stwosz and where, every hour, the brave trumpeter of Cracow still plays the city's melody - the legendary warning call from historic Tatar attack on the city.
