While in Warsaw, it would be a pity to miss out on the old town’s highlights such as the Sigismund Column, the Royal Castle, St. John the Baptist Cathedral or the Barbican. However, as the popular saying goes ‘the devil is in the details’…
Hence, this tour is not merely about ticking off the old town’s most popular sights. Our ambition is to show you some less iconic yet equally interesting spots that easily slip away to an inattentive eye. We will walk outside the city walls and explore parts of the New Town as well. Initially formed as a separate city, today it’s the quieter and less visited part of the historic old town district.
During this tour you can be sure to cover the old town’s highlights but also see places that classic sightseeing programs usually omit.
On the walk you will:
