Free Walking Tour of the Old Town & Jewish Quarter

150 reviews | 1,209 travellers
Excellent tour of Krakow Old Town and Jewish Quarter with Luis. There were four of us and we were alone so it became a private tour. Entertaining, well explained and based on the explanations, he gave us a vision of the history of the city and its different corners. It is well worth doing the tour like this. Otherwise there is no problem visiting Krakow on these dates.

Free Walking Tour of the Old Town & Jewish Quarter

We'll meet up at the main entrance of the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre, which sits in Krakow's central Market Square. This spot is Europe's largest medieval town square! Here, we'll find St. Mary's Basilica and the Kraków Cloth Hall, which is one of the most iconic sights in this Polish city.

To begin, we'll head to Krakow's Barbican and the City Walls, where we'll talk about the history of this magnificent defensive complex.

Accompanied by our expert guide, we'll find out about the city's most important dates, as well as why it was declared a World Heritage Site. We'll head to the university area, which has seen famous faces such as the University of Krakow alumni John Paul II and Copernicus.

Our free walking tour will then take us to the Basilica of the Franciscans. As we admire this building from the outside, we'll tell you all about its history. Did you know that a replica of the Holy Shroud is housed here? The basilica's interior is also full of beautiful art nouveau stained glass windows.

Having left the Basilica behind, we'll stroll through the Wawel Castle complex. As we explore this historic place, we'll take in all the buildings that make up this architectural complex.

Next, we'll visit Kazimierz district, Krakow's Jewish quarter. This neighbourhood is characterised by its tragic history during Nazi occupation and the Holocaust, as it was home to the largest Jewish community in the world.

As we wander around its streets, we'll learn about the atrocities inflicted against its residents. We'll also discuss how the famous film Schindler's List was shot in this district.

After 3 hours of history, our free walking tour of the old town and Jewish quarter in Krakow will come to an end.
