70 free walks with Krakow guides
Monuments, cafes, synagogues, Wawel rulers, Nowa Huta, Young Poland and Jewish cemeteries - a total of 70 thematic walks with professional guides have been prepared by the City of Krakow and KBF as part of the "Be a Tourist in Your City – Sightsee Krakow" and "Krakow Undiscovered" campaigns.
Free walks will be organized on Saturdays and Sundays twice a day until October. This weekend we will experience them for the first time!
–Krakow can be visited individually and you can treasure hunt on your own, you can walk with friends and families, you can also discover the secrets of the city spontaneously or scrupulously plan your route, based on printed guidebooks. But if we want to discover the deepest recesses, learn about unknown corners, the biggest secrets of the city and surprising curiosities - the best idea is to take a walk with a qualified guide - says the Mayor of Krakow, Jacek Majchrowski.
– Our campaign is aimed at supporting guides during a period that is very difficult for them, as well as showing Krakow residents how beautiful and diverse Krakow is. Even if it seems to us that we know the city we live in, I am sure that each of the walks will surprise us with something new. That is why I am encouraging you to download free tickets for one of the seventy walks today - he emphasizes.
At noon, on July 12, the youngest sightseeing enthusiasts could see "Legendary Krakow" with their own eyes. During the walk they learned (almost) all of the secrets of the city, its dragon legends and fairy tales. Because, as it turns out, Krakow is full of magic, and its secrets are just waiting to be discovered!
Each walk takes two hours and is conducted in Polish. A maximum of 20 people can participate in each of them - of course with all sanitary requirements (disposable headphones will be distributed to all the participants).
Advance ticket reservations are required for the walks. Tickets can be booked through evenea.pl.
One person can download a maximum of two tickets to one e-mail address (a child's ticket must also be downloaded). Registration closes on Saturday at 10.00. Taking part in a walk without a ticket is not possible.
Free walks with Krakow guides are part of the "Be a Tourist in Your City - Sightsee Krakow" information and social campaign and the "Krakow Undiscovered" promotional campaign. Detailed information is available in the news tab of the Krakow.travel website. We encourage you to post photos and other materials from your walks on social media and tag them with #badzturysta [#BeATourist], #zwiedzajkrakow [#SightseeKrakow] and #badzturystawswoimmiescie [#BeATouristInYourCity], as well as tag event profiles and campaigns on the Be a Tourist in Your City - Sightsee Krakow fan page on Facebook, as well as @BadzTurysta on Instagram.
