What you can expect
Together with the city guide, you will discover the Warsaw Royal Route with the Holy Cross Church, where the heart of Chopin rests, the campus of the University of Warsaw, Pilsudski Square with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the two most expensive hotels in Warsaw (Bristol and Europejski | built in the second half of the 19th century), the Presidential Palace, the Palace of the President of the Republic of Poland, and the Palace of the Republic of Poland. century), the Presidential Palace, the St. Anna Church and finally the incredibly beautiful Castle Square with a view of the colourful and perfectly reconstructed Old Town and the Royal Castle.
Afterwards, there is a break of almost three hours. So there is plenty of time to visit a restaurant, café or bistró, go to a museum and digest the first part of the tour. At 15:00 we meet again at Castle Square and explore Warsaw’s Old Town.
We start with 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 Herrscharr tourists, because we know our own secret routes that allow you to enjoy the Old Town to the full.
You will visit St. John’s Cathedral (from the outside), St. Martin’s Church from the outside), the medieval market square and the Learning Circle, 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 city guide will show you the birthplace of Marie Curie before continuing to the last stop – the Warsaw Uprising Memorial.
We show our guests the city in a new kind of modern guided tour: Guiding 2.0 follows the philosophy that the guests have the right to get to know all possible facets and that dates and historical facts are very important, but they should be put in the background – those can be read afterwards by everyone himself. With magnificent buildings, monuments and memorials as a backdrop, we would like to introduce you to life in the city as it really is – because you can’t read about it everywhere!
So let our city guide inspire you and show the real heart of our city!
