Step by Step

Take the opportunity to embark on this cruise on the Vistula River, the most important river in Poland. The tour, which lasts approximately 1 hour, includes an audio guide so you won't miss anything you see from the water.

On this tour you will be able to see the most significant places in Krakow:

  • Wawel Castle: the former residence of the kings of Poland, it is the most important historical site in the country and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Manggha Museum: a building with a wave-shaped roof displaying Japanese art and technology.
  • Cricoteka: a theatre and performing arts exhibition centre with curious modern architecture.
  • " Church on the Rock": is the main pilgrimage church for devotees of St. Stanislaus, Archbishop of Krakow.
  • Bernatka Bridge: a bridge decorated with acrobatic sculptures where many Krakow lovers have placed padlocks with their names engraved on them.

You will also pass through the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, which was badly affected during the Second World War. Part of the filming of the famous film "Schindler's List" took place in this district, where you will find many interesting sites such as Oskar Schindler's factory and the Remuh Synagogue.

The Norbertine Sisters' Monastery and the family home of Pope John Paul II are other places you can see during this walk.

The Vistula allows you to cross by boat a city in whose buildings the religious and cultural load is present at all times. On both sides of the boat you will find monuments and places of interest in the history of Poland. All of this is accompanied by the surrounding natural scenery and the tranquillity of the river.

Without a doubt, a perfect tour for a romantic date, an original plan with your friends or a pleasant experience with your family.

    Perfect place to rest and reconnect with yourself. If you have the opportunity to take this tour do not hesitate, it is perfect to disconnect from the world and be at peace with nature for a while.

    I love the cruise tours, they are a perfect place to forget about everything and enjoy what's around. Too bad it doesn't include any drinks, I think a glass of wine or a coffee would have been ideal to make the experience better. Despite this, the experience was very good and I am looking forward to repeat in the future.

    Perhaps the short duration does not benefit the tour much. It was a very nice experience, but it is true that we would have loved the tour to last longer.
