Medieval Krakow

Krakow is a city waiting to be explored, and this 4-hour tour will introduce you to all the highlights! Starting in Europe’s largest medieval market square, we will meet beneath the Adam Mickiewicz statue where your guide will provide you with a short introduction about the history of Krakow and then help you get fitted for your bikes just a few steps away at our office. From there, we will trace the medieval city walls and moat along the Planty gardens as it winds its way to the Wawel Castle, a site believed to be a spiritual chakra. Your guide will fill you in on all of the history, culture, and gossip surrounding this unusual renaissance building.
