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.

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!
