What To Expect

Krakowskie Przedmiescie
The main boulevard street of Warsaw, reminding you if the city's royal past. Adorned with palaces, parks and monuments, including the Presidential Palace, Bristol Hotel and St. Cross Church, where the heart of Chopin is interred.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Old Town
Old medieval core of Warsaw with its red roofs, colourful houses and the Royal Castle is the most unlikely UNESCO Heritage Site, as it was fully reconstructed following the near full destruction during WW2. The reconstruction was done so meticulously that you will have hard time telling that it's not old, and it set the example for the rest of the world.

New Town Square
Curiously named New Town, this part of the city was also established in the Middle Ages. It's the place of birth of Maria Skłodowska-Curie. The Barbican, standing between the Old and New Town, is a conclusion ground of our walk. Thank you for joining!

A great walking tour

We had a great experience on our English speaking walking tour of historic Warsaw. Our guide Andrzej was super knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour to keep us all engaged despite the sometimes grim reality of the history we were learning (and a small blizzard!). Would recommend this tour.

Terrific introduction to Warsaw

Like so many other reviewers, we had a great time on the Walkative walking tour with Ana. We'd arrived in Warsaw the previous evening and thought it would be a great starting point - Ana showed us round the Old Town, with plenty of interesting anecdotes and a fair few jokes. Everyone enjoyed it, and the tour was just the right length at around two-and-a-half hours. Highly recommend.
A good Intro to Warsaw

I've come to find these free walking tours as a great way of getting an overview of a new city. This tour did the job, we had a good walk around with a mix of factual, historical and personal stories. The guide was knowledgeable. Unfortunately we had landed only a couple of hours before the start, and not totally warm enough to withstand the dropping temperatures so we're sorry to miss the ending of the tour
