Sightseeing Bike Tour of Krakow

Our tour meets in the largest medieval square in Europe, the main market square of Krakow. After an introduction on Krakow's origins we lead our guests to our shop to equip each person with their own Beachcruiser bike. Our tour takes you through a time warp of history and architecture, where you will find remnants of a history over 2000 years old.We bike pass a 900 year old market before riding along the Planty gardens to the Jaggiloninan University, where we walk inside the medieval courtyard and listen and watch as figures representing Queens of Poland's history chime the hour. We continue our journey to the Bishop's Palace for a glance at the famous window of Pope John Paul II, before glimpsing the old residence of Oscar Schindler. And what tour would be complete without a stop at the Wawel castle as well as the Dragon dwelling. Take pictures as the dragon breaths fire just for you!Now its time for a relaxing ride along Krakow's Vistula river before entering the Krakow Ghetto and seeing remnants of the Ghetto wall. See remnants of Krakow's historical Jewish quarter known as Kazimierz. By this time your appetite has grown enough to enjoy a Polish meal in a traditional Polish restaurant. The restaurant is an old Jewish carpenter's shop, tailor shop, general store and a pantry. You will have the opportunity to sit amongst the authentic equipment and goods dating back to the 19th century, such as sewing machines, dresses, carpentry tools, and other objects once sold. There are also fragments of the walls that once divided the shops.We begin our journey back from the restaurant through the bar saturated areas of Kazimierz, before we follow the royal route from behind the castle all the way to the resting area of Poland's only Leonardo De Vinci, Lady with Ermine. We stress that you do not have to be fit to do this tour. Krakow is completely flat and ideal for bike riding.
