    What you can expect

    We meet in front of the Copernicus Monument, where the most beautiful section of the Warsaw Royal Route begins. The guide will not only show you the most beautiful and important buildings on the avenue, but also explain the geological, cultural and historical features of the city. In addition, he will also use the side streets so that you see as much of Warsaw as possible.

    On the first part you will visit the Holy Cross Church with the Chopin Candle, the campus of Warsaw University, Pilsudski Square with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the buildings of the two most expensive hotels in Warsaw (Bristol and Europejski | built in the second half of the 19th century), the Presidential Palace and St. Anna’s Church. The first part ends at the beautiful Castle Square overlooking the colourful and perfectly reconstructed Warsaw Old Town and the adjacent Royal Castle.

    There is a short toilet break here before continuing. The city guide will take you to the inner courtyard of the Royal Castle and explain how they managed to rebuild the castle and the Old Town so faithfully. The next stop is the lower gardens of the Royal Castle with a view of the front facade onto the Royal Castle (from Castle Square you can only see the rear and less attractive part).

    Finally, there is a tour of Warsaw’s Old Town and New Town. The highlight is the Market Square and the Barbican as part of the medieval city wall.

    The city tour ends at the monument to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.

    If you want to understand Warsaw, you cannot avoid the historical part. The Royal Boulevard and the Old Town with the Royal Castle are the heart of the city.

    In addition to the wealth of information about the history of the city and buildings, the city guide will also tell you about the people of Warsaw and their life in the capital of Poland. He will also give numerous tips for a successful evening as well as the hotspots in Warsaw.

    Think of the tour as a meeting with a good friend you’ve known for years. This is how we feel about our city tours with our guests from all over the world and we want them to take Warsaw to their hearts.

    We look forward to meeting you in person soon.

    Royal Route
    The Royal Route in Warsaw is the most beautiful avenue in Warsaw and not for nothing in our top 10 list of the attractions of Warsaw. Here you can expect countless magnificent buildings such as the Bristol Hotel or the Presidential Palace, interesting stories and anecdotes as well as numerous surprises. At the end of the Royal Route you will be amazed by the fantastic view of the colorful and perfectly reconstructed Old Town. Frédéric Chopin grew up on the Royal Route, he learned to play the piano here, before he made a world career in Paris. And yes: his heart is in one of the churches you will visit with the city guide.
    4
    Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy)
    The Warsaw Castle Square with the Sigismund Column standing in the center, the Royal Castle and the view of the Old Town or the National Stadium standing across the river is by far the most beautiful square in Warsaw. The square connects the Royal Route with the Old Town. Before continuing, there will be a short toilet break and those who wish will have the opportunity to buy a coffee to go.
    5
    Old Town
    The Old Town of Warsaw was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1980, despite the fact that over 90 percent of it was destroyed during World War 2. The Old Town is surrounded by a wall. The highlight is the market square. The city guide will also show you the viewing platform on the dung hill, the "German bell", the narrowest facade or the Barbakan. You will also get tips for a polish restaurant and the address of a traditional pastry shop.
    6
    New Town
    To the north, the Old Town borders the New Town. Historically, this district is 100 years younger than the Old Town and is not surrounded by a city wall. Worth seeing are the house where E.T.A. Hoffmann lived from 1804 to 1806 and the birthplace of Marie Curie, the double Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of radium and polonium. Not far from the New Town ran the wall of the Jewish Ghetto (1940-1943). The guide will also tell you something about the Jewish heritage.
    7
    Monument of the Warsaw Uprising 1944
    The tour ends at the Warsaw Uprising Memorial. For the people of Warsaw, the greatest trauma took place in 1944. Almost 250 thousand civilians and 20 thousand insurgents died or were murdered in 63 days. What is the relationship of the Warsawers to the Uprising today? What is the relationship with the Germans? The city guide gives answers to these and other questions.
