The Old Town


This tour tells a very unique story. The Old Town managed to lift itself from the ashes, after it was leveled to the ground during the WWII. In the postwar time it was rebuilt from scratch and true to the original. In recognition of this outstanding achievement UNESCO inscribed the Old Town on the list of its heritage.

During this 2-hour walking tour you will stroll along the picturesque Royal Route and through the romantic streets of the Old Town. You will discover the most beautiful corners and the most spectacular monuments, architectural highlights, royal palaces and residences. You will learn about the Venetian painter Canaletto and the invaluable role of his paintings during the reconstruction of the Old Town. You will follow in the footsteps of the best- known Warsowians such as Fréderic Chopin and Marie Curie as well as events connected with the Solidarity movement and the fall of communism. You will stop at the place where the second oldest constitution in the world was adopted. And you will visit the worldwide only church, which served as the war front. Discover the youngest old town in the world! Enjoy the tour in a small group with our local expert!
