Walking tour of Warsaw
| on foot |
To start exploring the city we will begin first of all with a walking tour around the Old Town – a place especially relevant for Warsaw’s history. While admiring the adorned facades of the old tenement houses you will learn about the earliest days of the city, but also about its recent war destruction and meticulous reconstruction. During the tour you will see the Castle Square with King Sigismund’s Column and the most important Warsaw’s temple – St. John’s Cathedral. Next, we will reach the Old Market Square – the old heart of the city with a charming statue of the mermaid, Warsaw’s coat of arms. I will then show you the city walls and the impressive defensive bastion called the Barbican.
Following the Old Town we will walk along the Royal Route – the ancient road leading to the city with beautiful palaces and residences of great artistic value overlooking the streets. Most noteworthy are the Presidential palace, the Bristol Hotel and the Warsaw University’s main campus. If time permits we can attend the changing of guards by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and visit to the Holy Cross church where the urn with the heart of Poland’s greatest composer Frederic Chopin is kept.
