Kraków’s Old Town survived the Second World War, so you’re able to feel the ambiance of the days when it used to be the capital of Europe’s largest country. Come join us for a tour around a city that hasn’t changed much since the Middle Ages to find out why it was included on the first-ever UNESCO Heritage List!
We will show you where to look to find traces of the city in its heyday in the 15th and 16th centuries, when Copernicus himself walked these streets. These were the days when Kraków teemed with the sounds of many different languages, colourful clothing and exotic goods, and people from around the world who came here seeking their fortune. But the roller-coaster of history never missed the royal city, and its days of wealth and prosperity turned to times of collapse and decline. The most recent tragedy of World War II and the hopelessness of communism are something you can still feel roiling under the seemingly calm and peaceful surface of contemporary Kraków. It was also during this dark time that Kraków was home to a young man who later changed the fate of Poland and the world. His name was Karol Wojtyła, better known as Pope John Paul II.
Like every good story, Kraków’s should have a happy ending, right? The city today will surely provide one! Join us and be ready to watch, touch, listen, smell and taste. You will definitely need all of your senses to discover Kraków!

Brilliant guide, giving you all the best information. Really knew the history of the area and entertained for the full 2 and a half hours. The tour pace is easy going and goes fast.

Damian historical tour. This was funny and very informative. He was a former history teacher so ofc he provides tons of facts and information. The walk takes in the old town and ends at the castle. It lasted around 3 hours or so and we had a toilet break.
The speed is casual and suitable for all abilities. What I liked was he wasn’t pushy for money, he explained the situation then opened a bag and allowed you to donate what you wanted. He was very funny but maybe less Russian jokes about Russia in future
I highly recommended Damian and the Walkative Krakow
