    What you can expect

    On this guided tour of Warsaw’s Old Town, you will begin in principle on a highlight of the city. The Royal Castle Square, where the city guide will be waiting for you, as the end of the Royal Route and with a view of the wonderfully reconstructed Old Town, is a sight everyone will remember.

    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 Residence, only 100 metres from the meeting point. 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.

    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 Herrscharr tourists, because we know our own secret routes that allow you to enjoy the Old Town to the full.

    You will visit St. John’s Cathedral (from the outside), St. Martin’s Church from the outside), the medieval market square and the Leaning Circle, 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.
