What you will visit

  • Market Square with the Warsaw Mermaid
  • the narrowest house façade
  • St John’s Cathedral and the Jesuit Church
  • the city wall with the Barbican
  • Monument of the Little Insurgent

What is the “More” on this tour?

We also go beyond the Old Town. The “More” on this city tour is the following sights and topics:

  • Royal Castle and the Royal Gardens
  • New Town with the birthplace of Marie Curie
  • 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

The guide will also give you lots of tips for good Polish restaurants, cafés and the best traditional pastry shop, which can only be found in the Old Town.
