Full description
Discover the diversity of this great city, its ingenuity, and its mixed legacy created by Poles, Czechs, Austrians and Germans. Your tour starts in the Market Square (Rynek), where you’ll be amazed by the unique beauty of the late Gothic City Hall. Strolling through the medieval streets, you’ll come across the beautiful university campus, where the main assembly hall is a striking example of the Baroque architecture from the Hapsburg times.  

Continue on to wander through enchanting medieval streets and admire the variety of architecture styles on display. Throughout, your guide will tell you funny stories, quirky legends, and mysterious facts hiding behind each building. He’ll also point out for you the many gnome statues that make this city so unique. You’ll learn the story behind these gnomes and in particular, why there are so many of them.

Sean was wonderful! He answered all our questions and super knowledgeable. I really appreciated him keeping us on track of the time line and very detail oriented in his explanation but not boring in any way. The walking pace was also perfect.
