Details of this tour

And on our quintessential Free Walking Tour Krakow, we expertly illuminate more than a thousand years of history with every step; from the time of the monarchs up through the modern age of war, communism and, at last, freedom.

Named by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1978 to its World Heritage List, Krakow was actually amongst the first in Europe with this designation, and the first in Poland. Though the second largest city in Poland, Krakow is home to the largest medieval market in Europe and, since 1364, the oldest university in the country.
