    What you can expect

    The tour starts on Castle Square, where the city guide will meet the group.

    After an introduction and explanations about what you can see here (St. Anne’s Church, Royal Castle, Old Town, National Stadium, Sigismund’s Column), you will go to the courtyard of the Royal Castle, only 100 metres from the meeting point away.. The palace is architecturally part of the entire ensemble of the Old Town and is therefore included in the World Heritage Site of the Old Town, which it became in 1980.

    Then you will walk through Piwna Street, one of the most romantic corners of the Old Town. The city guide will show you narrow alleyways, at the end of which town musicians play and ice-cream sellers offer their wares. You won’t have to flow along with the tourists, because we know our own secret routes that allow you to enjoy the Old Town fully.

    You will visit St. John’s Cathedral (from the outside), St. Martin’s Church from the outside), the medieval market square, enter the panoramic platform on the Warsaw “dunghill” and see a walled-in tank chain, the “German” bell, the city walls and the Barbican. Finally, the guide will show you the birthplace of Marie Curie before continuing to the last stop – the Warsaw Uprising Memorial.

    Can I combine this tour with other tours?

    We recommend booking our Budget City Tour to the Royal Route. Both tours are timed so that there is a long lunch break between them. The Royal Route tour goes from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm and the Old Town tour starts at 3 pm. The Royal Route tour ends where the Old Town tour begins.

    Budget City Tour | Warsaw Royal Route

    The guided tour along the Royal Route takes place daily (except Wednesday) at 10:30 am. After that tour, guests have enough time for a lunch break. It can be ideally combined with this tour. If you book a ticket for both tours, you save on the final price.
