What you can expect
First, you will discover the Warsaw Royal Route together with the city guide. Highlights include the Church of the Holy Cross, where the heart of Frédéric Chopin rests, the Warsaw University campus, Pilsudski Square with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the two most expensive hotels in Warsaw (Bristol and Europejski from the 19th century), the Presidential Palace and the Church of St. Anna. At the end of the tour, there is the beautiful Castle Square with a view of the colorful and perfectly reconstructed Old Town and the Royal Castle.
Afterward, there is a break of almost three hours. So there is enough time to visit a restaurant, a café or Bistró or to go to a museum. At 15:00 we meet again at Castle Square and explore Warsaw’s Old Town.
The guide will show you the courtyard of the Royal Castle and explain the secrets of the reconstruction of the whole ensemble. Both the Old Town and the castle were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1980. Then continue along the romantic ulica Piwna, past St John’s Cathedral and the Jesuit Church to the lookout point on the medieval dung heap with a view of the Vistula and St Florian’s Cathedral in the Praga district.
Finally, you will visit the birthplace of Marie Curie before ending the tour at the Warsaw Uprising Memorial.
We want to show you our city from all angles. Guiding 2.0 follows the idea that guests have the right to learn about all possible facets and that data and history facts are very important but need to be explained from an appropriate context. With magnificent buildings, monuments, and memorials as a backdrop, we want to introduce you to life in the city and its inhabitants as they really are.
So let our city guide inspire you and show our Warsaw!
