How to get
The guide will start the tour on time. However, if you are a few minutes late, look out for the white umbrella. At least 10 minutes after the start of the tour, you will surely find the guide on Castle Square.
You will first go to the inner courtyard of the Royal Castle, then through Piwna Street, past St John's Cathedral to the Panorama Terrace. The crowning glory is the Market Square and the Barbican, which has also been reconstructed.
The birthplace of Marie Curie in the New Town marks the end of the tour. The guide will bid farewell to the group at the Warsaw Uprising Memorial.
Take the opportunity to ask the guide about insider tips. He has more than enough of them!
We wish you a pleasant and informative tour!
