Outside the Old Town, Krakow is more than just the main square, there are wonderful monuments and buildings within a 1 km radius of the Old Town. You can explore impressive Baroque churches and eclectic 19th century residences and monuments that most visitors never see.

On the walks we will visit a sample of the most significant monuments as well as places off-the-beaten path. It is possible to combine the above tours into longer walks and to customize tours to suit your interests and time schedule.


In an involving and entertaining way I aim to illustrate and decipher Krakow's long, turbulent history. The walks are designed to give visitors an understanding and appreciation of Krakow's long, rich history through the use of numerous historic photographs, illustrations, legends, anecdotes, and odd facts.
