1,620 Reviews

The lop-sided towers of the majestic Saint Mary’s Basilica dominate the northeast corner of Krakow’s lively central square, the Rynek Główny. A church has graced this spot since medieval times, but this incarnation was built of red-brick in Gothic style and consecrated in 1320 after the original was destroyed by invading Tartars in the 13th century. The northern tower was raised to 263 feet (80 meters) and became the city’s watchtower.

The interior is handsomely decorated with a star-spangled blue ceiling, heavy Gothic ornamentation and stained-glass windows that shaft sunlight into patterns in the floor. The showpiece is the magnificent carved altar, constructed with wood by the German craftsman Veit Stoss in 1489; it took him 12 long years to finish his creation, which measures 47 feet (13 meters) across and is carved with 200 biblical figures. The altar is opened daily at 11:50 a.m. to reveal gilded scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary.

St Mary’s Basilica is most famous for the much-loved bugle call that rings out across the city on the hour, every hour, played by a trumpeter standing at the top of the structure’s taller, northern tower.

Kraków, Kazimierz district and Schindler's Factory Full-Day Trip from Warsaw

Kraków, Kazimierz district and Schindler's Factory Full-Day Trip from Warsaw

Before the outbreak of the World War II, Poland was inhabited by one of the largest Jewish diasporas in Europe, with a total of about 3.5 million of Jews. They came to Krakow in the 11th century and when the World War II broke out they constituted over 25% of the city's population. Few managed to survive the Nazi extermination, but their religious and cultural achievements can still be admired in Kazimierz, one of the Krakow’s districts, where the Jewish quarter was located. We will start visiting Krakow from the historic Old Town. We will see the delightful main square, and slowly go to the Wawel Hill to see the medieval castle towering over Krakow. From there, we will go to Kazimierz to see the Jewish heritage. There we will have lunch in one of the many cozy cafes. Finally, we will visit the museum located in the former factory of Oskar Schindler, who during the war saved over 1,000 people from being sent to extermination camps.
