Get to know Krakow Old Town and Jewish Quarter Kazimierz like your own palm. We start at Plac Szczepanski, 2 minutes of walk from the Main Market Square of Krakow. From there we will walk through the Planty Gardens, the majestic Barbican and St. Florian's Gate. Via Florianska St. We will continue the tour to the Main Market Square, where we will listen to the legends about the St. Mary's Basilica, see the Cloth Hall, St. Adalbert's Church and the Town Hall Tower with the head of Eros Bendato beneath. Leaving the Main Market Square we will proceed towards the University district, where we will view the buildings of the Jagiellonian University - Collegium Maius (the oldest academic building in Poland) and Collegium Novum (the rector's office) and hear the stories about WWII. We will then follow the footsteps of pope John Paul II, one of our greatest countrymen. After touring around the Old Town, we will have a swift break to rest and to try out some of the best coffees and Polish desserts you can buy in the city. Continuing our tour we will view Kazimierz, once a former city, today one of the districts of Krakow. With its interesting heritage it is one of the most attractive places to see here. Thanks to hundreds of centuries of mixed Polish and Jewish history, Kazimierz is a district where anybody can feel unique. We will see the synagogues and cemetery and hear all about them, history as well as legends. From the Jewish Town we will continue to Corpus Christi Church - a gothic temple with baroque interior. From Kazimierz we will walk back to the Old Town, ending our tour beneath the Wawel Castle, the royal residence of Polish princes and kings since the 10th century.
