Discover the beautiful, historic, and culture-packed city of Krakow on a bus and walking tour.

You will begin your tour by visiting the Jewish District of Kazimierz to explore the area which used to be inhabited by one of the most diverse Jewish communities in Europe. Then a short drive will take you up the Wawel Hill which is the embodiment of Poland's former monarchical glory. Its summit is the Royal Castle and a 14th-century cathedral which hosted almost all coronations and funerals of the Polish monarchy. Having descended the hill, we stroll along Kanonicza and Grodzka Streets to reach Collegium Maius (Great College), the oldest building of the Academia Cracoviensis. After visiting the charming Gothic courtyard we continue to the Main Market Square. This bustling heart of the city is a perfect place for picking up souvenirs, especially in the Cloth Hall which has been the local market place for centuries. Complete your tour by visiting St Mary's Church, where the stunning medieval altar sculpted by Veit Stoss is located and a bugle call sounds towards the four corners of the world every hour on the hour.

Prepare to be amazed at the devotion and superstition that drove miners to carve figures, monuments and altarpieces into the walls of an 800-year-old salt mine.

As you walk down the 360 steps into the salt mine, you have the impression you are entering a vast underground city, complete with huge caverns and underground lakes. This underground world has earned a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list thanks to the creativity of the miners who carved chapels out of the walls, hundreds of metres below the surface. You will visit the largest of the chapels, dedicated to St Kinga, the patron saint of salt miners. This subterranean church is richly decorated with chandeliers, sculptures, and religious figures carved out of salt. As you follow the 2 1/2-kilometre walk, you'll pass statues dating back to the 18th century depicting mythical, historical and religious figures. The last stop in the mine is the souvenir shop and snack bar. From here, the lift carries you back to the surface.

Visit Poland's spiritual heart on a tour to the town of Czestochowa. Follow in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims as you gaze upon the "Black Madonna" at the Jasna Gora Monastery.

Our tour takes you to a place which receives around 5 million visitors a year (including over 150 thousand pilgrims on foot). After arriving at the monastery we visit the chapel of the miraculous painting of the Black Madonna, which is the embodiment of the attachment to the Cult of Mary so typical of the Catholic faith in Poland. Next we visit the Basilica, which is the main church of the monastery. You can also visit the 600th-Anniversary Museum and the Treasury on your own, if you wish, or attend Mass while others on the tour have a break for lunch and a visit to a souvenir shop. On the way back we alter our route slightly to admire the most spectacular limestone rock formations typical of the Krakow-Czestochowa Uplands. This allows us to visit the only remaining castle of the so called Eagle Nest Trail at Pieskowa Skala.

Usually referred to as "the raft trip down the Dunajec river" this in fact a rather leisurely drift in large wooden punts. Highly experienced guides make sure you have a smooth ride and keep you informed about the sights you see and the history of the trips, which goes back to 1840s .

Visit the historical centre for Poland's Jews on a tour of Kazimierz, the district where "Schindler's List" was filmed.

Named after the king who invited the Jews to Poland in the 14th century, Kazimierz became a flourishing centre of Jewish religion and culture. Due to the policy of religious tolerance that prevailed in Poland from the 15th century, Kazimierz became a safe heaven for diverse groups of Jewish refugees from all over Europe. The tour aims to retrace this diversity which resulted in the construction of numerous synagogues (including the oldest of the preserved synagogue in Poland) and the absolutely unique atmosphere which is still present there. Also, you might recognise some of the sights that appeared in the Oscar winning "Schindler's List", which was shot in this area. The tour ends with a visit to the monument commemorating the victims of the former Nazi concentration camp in Plaszow.

The tour gives you a chance to follow in the footsteps of the man who was to become one of the greatest Popes and human beings in history.

Our tour begins with a visit to Wadowice, "the place where it all began" as the Pope referred to his hometown in 1999 during his visit here. We will see the places dearest to Karol Wojtyła during his childhood and adolescence, including the parish church where he was baptised and the house where he was born. Our journey to and from Wadowice also gives you a chance to view the peaks of the Popes beloved Beskidy mountain range where he used to hike. On return to Krakow we stop at the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Łagiewniki. In this developing place of pilgrimage you can pay homage to the holly relics of St. Faustyna Kowalska, who was canonised as the first saint of the Third Millennium by John Paul II, and admire the impressive modern basilica consecrated by the Pope in 2002. Then we travel to the foot of the Royal Castle to visit the Archdiocese Museum located in the most picturesque street in Krakow. In the museum you can see the flat where Karol Wojtyla lived while working as a lecturer of theology. Finally, we visit the Archbishop's Palace which is Wojtyla's last residence before leaving for the Vatican in 1978. There one can see the famous "papal window", where John Paul II used to show up to chat and chant with the youth of Kraków during all his visits and where thousands of people lit candles and prayed during his last days.

We invite you to follow the route that will take you where the scent of ancient logs, inside a church or a cottage, will help you find the spirit and serenity of the past.

"Kazimierz the Great received a Poland made of wood but gave it back built of stone" – as the saying goes. However, as it was the case in towns mostly, in most rural areas local carpenters continued to build of wood. This seemingly inferior material was cheaper, more available and enabled people to be self-reliant. As a result wooden architecture still prevailed in the countryside where buildings were erected in perfect harmony with the landscape. The unmatched number of preserved objects in Małopolska led to the creation of The Wooden Architecture Route which stretches for about 1500 km comprising over 200 churches, belfries, granaries, cottages and manor houses. The trip takes you to the most attractive places which are within a relatively short distance from Kraków and also gives you a chance to see the countryside off the main tourist routes.
