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.
