We will take you on a journey, from the city’s very begginnings in early medieval ages, all the way to modern times. Walking around the streets in Cracow, we will discover how the city has changed over more than 1000 years of time – architecture, topography, city’s planning, people’s lives. We will see the most important buidlings in the city, which – being in Cracow – you cannot miss, all the time getting to know the details and curiosities that can be rarely found in guide books!
