Overview

The historical centre of Kraków – The Old Town, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978, is divided into two parts: the Wawel Hill, and the medieval Old Town of Kraków. The walls surrounding the medieval town were constructed between the 10th and 12th century. Presently, located where once the walls and 47 bastions were, is a park called the Planty, encircling the Old Town.
The Market Square is the starting point of the tour. In its centre the Cloth Hall is located, dating back to the 14th century, which now houses numerous souvenir stands. This Square is the largest of its kind in Europe. Not only does it feature astonishing architecture – just to mention the St. Mary's Basilica with its two famous, distinctive towers, but it also serves as a great meeting place - the monument of Adam Mickiewicz being the landmark.

Walking the most famous route of the historic centre, called the Royal Road, going through the streets of Floriańska and Grodzka, we reach the Wawel Hill, a stupendous castle complex, with the stunning Royal Wawel Cathedral.

Most of the kings of Poland lived in the Wawel Castle, and during World War II, it was occupied by a Nazi governor.
