Krakow Sightseeing - City Tour
Duration: 3.5 hours For over a thousand years, Krakow has been the center of science, culture and art in Poland and this Krakow City Sightseeing Tour by Coach is a fine introduction to a historic city. Your 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 and the seat of royal power up until the 17th century. The Castle was home to many Polish kings and queens and the royal crypts in the Cathedral their final resting place, along with several other Polish heroes. A walk up Grodzka street leads you to the heart of Krakow, the Rynek Glˇwny, or Main Market Square. There the large Cloth Hall is the perfect place to shop for local souvenirs. The 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 Krakow still calls out his warning.
