Photography Tour of Krakow

A unique way to experience local life in Kraków, the most artistic of Polish cities, is to become an artist for a day. Join our passionate photographer and guides, who are founders of an artistic group called Polish Obscura, and travel back in time to capture historic Krakow as they would have done in the late 19th century, with a handmade camera.

You will be guided to some breathtaking spots, many of which will be off the main tourist trail, and your photographer guide will teach you how to take an interesting shot. You’ll even develop the image yourself in an old-school darkroom — how’s that for a quirky and original souvenir to take home?! Oh, and we’ll throw in a couple of stops at our favourite local cafés to try some Polish treats along the way too!

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
