Launching new tourist routes in and around Kraków

30 June 2017

Do you want to become familiar with Kraków from a different, less obvious side? We offer you no fewer than seven new theme-based walks in our city. Routes for children, literature buffs and film lovers, and UNESCO routes, described in seven languages, are a suggestion for all those who want to discover the still unknown face of Kraków in the region!

Where did the Wawel Dragon take his morning constitutional? What is a dragon’s corner? Can Kraków be visited on the wings of pigeons? These are things that you're going to learn during family walks in the footsteps of the Wawel Dragon and on the wings of enchanted pigeons and busy children's feet.

The literary walks in the Historical Centre of Kraków, Podgórze, and Kazimierz are an idea for the true book lover, avid reader, and explorer of connections between the book world and the real world, but also for aficionados of – believe it or not – good coffee. We will learn that Kraków can offer plenty of attractions connected to famous writers, and that it is not the UNESCO City of Literature without good reason.

The following walks will disclose a less obvious face of Kraków, one that belongs to the factory of dreams: film. In the first two we will follow the trail of bygone cinemas and famous directors connected with Kraków – Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polański. The second walk will take us in the footsteps of Schindler's List, a film that turned Kraków into a huge film set and that gave the city an unforgettable brand.

To finish off we suggest that you leave Kraków for a moment and take a tour of Małopolska to see the sites that have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List to experience the beauty and exceptional quality of the heritage our region has to offer.
