Krakow to Warsaw itinerary

We are not going to lie. To do this exciting day tour, you'll have to set your alarm and leave your bed in the early morning hours. Our English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel around 6:30 am. Yes, we know it's early, but it will be very worth it. You will be driven to the train station where you will hop on a speedy train to Warsaw. This will be your chance to take a nap. Just keep in mind the ride will take just around 2.5 hours so don't miss your stop! Once you get to Warsaw Central Station, our guide will meet you there and take you for 4 hours of intense sightseeing. Of course, the guide will speak English so you don't have to worry about any language barrier.

Warsaw city tour: Stroll through the Old Town, See the Royal Castle up close, and learn about its destruction during World War II

If you don't know much about the capital of Poland, you'll be an expert after this guided tour. It will take you to the most important attractions in the city. Royal Castle? Check. Old Town Market Square? Check. Lazienki Park? You guessed it - check! This walking tour is packed with highlights so keep your eyes and ears peeled. Here are some of the things that you'll spot along our route:

Palace of Culture & Science

The one building that is often associated with Warsaw is the Palace of Culture & Science. You won't have to walk far to experience its overwhelming presence. In fact, you'll spot it soon after leaving the Central Train Station. Until 2021 it was the tallest building in Poland, offering great views from its terrace on the 30th floor. Although the Palace of Culture & Science has successfully ingrained itself into Warsaw's landscape, this gigantic building has been a nightmare for some of the locals who would prefer it to disappear. Want to know why they have an issue with it? Well, we can't spoil it all so you just have to wait until you get there.

The Royal Castle

Don't expect to catch sight of royalty in Warsaw. However, if you want to experience a bit of luxury and culture during your trip, a visit to the Royal Castle in Warsaw should be satisfying enough. Former home of the Polish rulers, it is more a palace than a castle and it now functions as a museum. It is easy to find, right in the old town. Now, don't be too disappointed when you find out that it's not actually the original castle from the 14th century. That one was sadly destroyed during World War II. The one that is currently standing there is such a faithful copy that you will hardly notice. Believe us when we say that it is much more impressive on the inside than its exterior would make you think!

Main Market Square

Feel a bit of the old times' charm when standing in the middle of Warsaw's main market square. Want to know a secret? The majority of this square has also been reconstructed. The one important thing you have to know when visiting Warsaw is that a big part of the city was destroyed during the war and rebuilt from ashes. So when walking along Warsaw's streets you can appreciate the local people's determination to bring the city back to life. The same happens when you're in the centre of this small market square. We invite you to have lunch in one of the restaurants there and try to figure out which buildings surrounding it are authentic and which ones were reconstructed. Oh, and don't forget to snap a photo with the city's symbol - the Warsaw Mermaid that you'll find right in the centre.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Monument of the Warsaw Uprising

Since the capital of Poland has experienced a lot of destruction and suffering, there are numerous monuments that commemorate its history and people. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is one of them and you'll have the chance to see it along our route. It is dedicated to the many unknown soldiers who fought and lost their lives during the war. The Warsaw Uprising Monument is another important landmark in Warsaw. When you see it in person and learn about the history it depicts, it will certainly make an impression.

Lazienki Park

Finally, let's not forget about the beautiful Lazienki Park which is one of the favourite places in Warsaw among locals and visitors alike. Stroll along its paths and take a break from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Lazienki means Baths and it is related to the Palace on the Island which is the park's most popular attraction. You certainly won't miss it!

Free time

After all the sightseeing, you deserve some free time to yourself. Once the walking tour is over, you will have 1.5 hours to do anything you want. You can snap some more photos, go for 2nd lunch, make a quick stop at a museum, reflect on what you saw or just give your legs a break.

Warsaw to Krakow

Our itinerary is coming to an end. Now it's time to say goodbye to the Polish capital and hop on a train back to Krakow. A day full of walking and excitement has probably made you tired so you can wind down on the way back. After about 3 hours you'll be back in your hotel. Don't worry, we will give you a ride there from the train station.
