Old Town in Krakow
Krakow - the historical capital of Poland, the seat of the oldest university in Poland, formerly known as the Krakow Academy, now the Jagiellonian University, one of the most dynamically developing cities and agglomeration areas in Poland. It can be said that it is a city of students, culture, and business. A tour of the Old Town will allow you to admire the countless number of magnificent historical buildings, historic churches, and monuments, as well as feel the unique climate and atmosphere of past eras.
Thanks to the rich program of excursions, you will cross the most charming streets and corners of the Old Town, see places especially worth visiting and learn about the wonderful cultural heritage that has been preserved to this day in one of the oldest Polish cities. The Old Town together with the Wawel Hill and the monuments of Kazimierz was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978. We recommend taking a walk along the Royal Route on the axis of Matejko Square - Wawel Castle. Matejko Square with St. Florian's Church and the Grunwald Monument is the beginning of our walk. Then we pass the remnants of the city fortifications with the Florian Gate and a saucepan, i.e. the Barbican. Through Florianska Street we enter the Main Market Square, the largest square in medieval Europe. The Market Square is viewed by the Gothic church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, commonly known as the Marian Church. In its shade, there is a tiny church of St. Adalbert, a souvenir from the Romanesque period. The largest Renaissance supermarket is, of course, the Cloth Hall, which grows in the middle of the Market Square next to the Town Hall Tower. Via Grodzka Street we walk dignified towards Wawel Castle. The following churches pass along the way: the Baroque St. Peter and Paul church and the Romanesque St. Andrew church. Nearby, however, there is one of the most beautiful streets of Krakow, Kanonicza Street. Further on you can see the Wawel Castle.
