Travel to Krakow – the Capital of Polish Culture and History!


Krakow is at the heart of Polish and Jewish history, offering city tours that take you back through the centuries, along a trail of monuments, legends, cusine and history.


Due to the city's rich history, Krakow tours have flourished in recent years.  There are seemingly countless things to do in Krakow, the trouble is picking which!


After all, where else can you see the Royal Castle and the Cathedral on the Wawel Hill, while listening to the building's mysterious legends and history, or touch the heart of Segismund’s Bell and make your dreams come true?  Tours in Krakow often take you to see the oldest Polish University and learn about its famous students like Nicolaus Copernicus and Karol Wojtyla, and most recently, pope John Paul II.


Krakow (often mistaken for Cracow), was the heart of Jewish culture before the World War II, and thanks to the city's administrative role during the war, the Krakow Jewish quarter and ghetto have remained largely intact.  Every year, Krakow hosts Europe's largest Jewish festival causing hotels in Krakow to fill up far in advance.  In Krakow you can visit both Orthodox and reform synagogues, or visit old cemetaries to learn about sacred funeral rites.


Or simply take in the quiet, laid back city by taking a walking tour of Krakow through Europe's largest market square, or stop for a cafe at a local street cafe and watch how seemlessly local life has blended into this historic city.

Monica was a fantastic guide for both the Jewish and Polish adventures. She is knowledgable, friendly and well organised. I particularly appreciate that she ran the tour for just one person. Thanks!
