From there we ride along the Planty gardens to the Jaggiloninan University, where we have a chance to walk inside the medieval courtyard and listen as well as watch figures representing Queens and deans 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 getting a glimpse at the old residence of Oscar Schindler. And of course 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. See remnants of the Ghetto wall before having the opportunity to enter Oscar Schindler´s factory, and signing the guest books, and thus adding your name to Schindler´s list. 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.
Choose anything from wild boar to perogi dumplings to Paradise beer, the restaurants original home brew. We begin our journey back from the restaurant through the bar and café 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 painting by Leonardo De Vinci, ´Lady with Ermine´. We then end with a stop in front of an architectural marvel, the Slowacki theater.
Note: We stress that you do not have to be fit to do this tour. Krakow is completely flat and ideal for bike ridding.
