Visit the city of Krakow with your guide, that will show you the most important sights of the city. We start at Market Square, one of the biggest in Europe, a reminder of the power and wealth of medieval Kraków, the Polish capital at that time. The 13th century Cloth Hall, rebuilt in Renaissance style, houses the largest collection of Polish paintings on the first floor and colourful handicraft stalls in the ground floor arcades. Saint Mary’s Church, dating back to the year 1221, boasts the precious 15th century Witt Stwosz altar.  CollegiumMaius with its Gothic arcades, was once home to the Jagiellonian University, Central Europe’s second oldest university, after the University of Prague. Wawel is the pride of Kraków and the heart of the nation as it is the final resting place of monarchs and wordsmiths. The Gothic Royal Castle dates back to the 10th century and was remodeled in Renaissance style in the 16th century. Its magnificent interiors contain numerous paintings as well as the Wawe l Tapestries Collection, commissioned in Flanders. The Gothic Royal Cathedral with its numerous crypts has elements of the original 11th century Romanesque cathedral. At the foot of the hill by the river is the cave of dragon which, according to legend, used to terrify Cracovians, until it was outwitted by a young shoemaker.
