Poland Walking & Bike Tours
A Krakow bike tour takes you through a time warp of history and architecture, where you will find remnants of a history over 2000 years old. We bike pass a 900 year old market before beginning the tour under the statue of the Battle of Grunwald. From there we ride along the Planty gardens to the Jaggiloninan University, where we walk inside the medieval courtyard and listen and watch as figures representing Queens of Poland's history chime the hour.

We continue our journey to the Bishop's Palace for a glance at the famous window of Pope John Paul II, before glimpsing the old residence of Oscar Schindler. And what tour would be complete without a stop at the Wawel castle as well as the Dragon dwelling. Take pictures as the dragon breaths fire just for you!
Now its time for a relaxing ride along Krakow's Vistula river before entering the Krakow Ghetto. See remnants of the Ghetto wall before having the opportunity to enter Oscar Schindler's factory and sign the guest books, therefore adding your name to Schindler's list. See remnants of Krakow's historical Jewish quarter known as Kazimierz. By this time your appetite has grown enough to enjoy a Polish meal in a traditional Polish restaurant. Choose anything from wild boar to perogi dumplings to Paradise beer, the restaurants original home brew.
We begin our journey back from the restaurant through the bar saturated areas of Kazimierz, before we follow the royal route from behind the castle all the way to the resting area of Poland's only Leonardo De Vinci, Lady with Ermine, and we then end with a stop in front of an architectural marvel, the Slowacki theater. We stress that you do not have to be fit to do this tour. Krakow is completely flat and ideal for bike riding.
» Warsaw Photography Walking Tour: The Old City
Discover Warsaw's Old Town and New Town. Both areas are mostly closed to traffic and provides spectacular scenery and unforgettable atmosphere, which are ideal for walks and photography tours. You will also see the Royal Castle, King Zygmunt's column and a wide panoramic view from St. Ann's Church belfry.
Warsaw has two historic districts, called Old Town and New Town. They are adjacent to each other and the newer section is almost as old as the Old Town. It lies just north of the Old Town and is connected with it by Freta Street, which begins at the Barbican.
Warsaw's Old Town (Polish: Stare Miasto, "Starowka") impresses tourists with its quaint, cobbled streets and unique old architecture. It is the oldest part of the city of Warsaw and one of its most prominent tourist attractions. The heart of the area is the Old Town Market Place, with its unique traditional Polish restaurants, cafes and shops. Surrounding streets feature medieval architecture such as the city walls, barbican and St. John's Cathedral. Warsaw's Old Town has been placed in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites as "an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century."
Warsaw's New Town (Polish: Nowe Miasto) was initially established to curb the unchecked growth that had snowballed beyond the city walls. Hence the New Town, founded in 1402, was given its own charter and corporation along the lines of its elder brother. A market square and town hall were built and a number of churches and monasteries sprung up. It was not fortified in contrast to the Old Town. The New Town was merged with the rest of the city in 1791.
