    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.

    Sigismund Column; Royal Caste (from the outside), Old Town with market squre, St. John´s Cathedral; Panorama terrace with view to the other side of the Vistula river; medieval city wall; Barbican; birthplace of Marie Curie, Monument of the Warsaw Uprising
