What you will visit

The Warsaw Old Town walking tour starts in front of the 22m high Sigismund´s Column on Castle Square.

The primary segment of this tour revolves around the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980. During this exploration, the city guide will showcase several key highlights:

  • Market Square with the Warsaw Mermaid
  • The narrowest house façade
  • St John’s Cathedral and the Jesuit Church
  • The city wall including the Barbican
  • A viewing terrace offering a stunning river view

But what “more” does this tour offer?

Beyond the Old Town, we delve into additional sights and topics, expanding the tour´s scope:

  • The Royal Castle and the Royal Gardens
  • The New Town, including Marie Curie´s birthplace
  • The Ghetto Wall Monument with explanations about the Jewish Uprising of 1943 and Jewish Heritage in Warsaw
  • Monument of the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 with explanations about the whole event

Furthermore, your guide will generously share recommendations for excellent Polish restaurants, cafés, and the finest traditional pastry shop unique to the Old Town.

Our tour isn´t confined to following the usual tourist routes. We have our own secret paths, ensuring you experience the Old Town to its fullest without constantly navigating through the tourist crowds.
