Krakowskie Przedmieście is part of the so-called “Royal Route” running from the Royal Palace to the residence in Wilanow. The street connects the present with the past in an almost mystical way. Enjoy a magical and touching journey where images of Canaletto’s view of the capital overlap with chapters from the war and contemporary charm.
For several centuries, the Krakow suburb has been one of the most prestigious streets in Warsaw. It was here that the now non-existent Krakow Gate began the road leading to the ancient capital – hence the name of the Krakow suburb. This is the path that was followed in various royal processions including trimphal entries after military victories. There are a number of former aristocratic residences and churches along the street.
During the tour we will see all the most beautiful and interesting sites of the Krakow suburb. This includes two unique churches – the Church of the Holy Cross and the Church of St. Anne, which has a complicated and painful past that reflects the history of both our city and country. We will also follow the footsteps of accomplished names like Marie Curie and Frederic Chopin. A meeting with Prince Jozef Poniatowski awaits us by the Presidential Palace. Join us for all this and more!
