See the Segway tour schedule of Krakow and find out that a Segway tour is a good idea.
SEGWAY KRAKOW – TOUR AROUND THE OLD TOWN
The Old Town in Krakow is a place full of historical buildings from various centuries, traces of famous people, but also a modern space teeming with life almost 24 hours a day. Visiting consecutive places from the tour program you can learn about the history of the city, see the traces of famous Poles or admire the pearls of architecture in different styles. During the tour it is also worth to soak up the atmosphere of the city, considered by many to be unique.
Krakow Segway tour will start with a short training and riding lesson (due to the intuitiveness and ease of driving the device the whole thing takes only a few minutes!). Then we will head towards the Barbican and the defensive walls surrounding the Old Town, paying special attention to Florian’s Gate. Along the walls numerous artists exhibit their works, offering passers-by both Krakow’s landscapes, still lifes and modern paintings in various guises. Along the route we will pass the Princes Czartoryski Museum, and then ride the Segway through St. John’s Street, which will lead us straight to the Main Square.
On the Market Square we will spend a few minutes admiring St. Mary’s Church, the Cloth Hall and the Town Hall Tower. We will also be able to feel the unique atmosphere of this one of the largest squares in Europe. Stalls with flowers, pigeons and carriages are an inseparable element of this place. Not to be forgotten is the bugle call from St. Mary’s Tower, which for several centuries has been played every hour to the four corners of the world.
After the visit to the Market Square we will direct our Segways to the next stage of the route, admiring the Collegium Maius, the oldest building of the Jagiellonian University. The next point of our tour will be the Bishop’s Palace, which has become an important place thanks to the meetings of Pope John Paul II with young people, which he conducted while standing in one of the windows. By the way, we will be able to see the Franciscan Church located opposite the Palace, which attracts the eye with its raw brick facade.
While continuing our tour, we will direct our vehicles in the direction of Wawel Hill. This is the place where kings of Poland resided for centuries, and the Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral are among the most important monuments on the map of Krakow. At the foot of the hill we will visit the statue of the Wawel Dragon, the hero of one of the most famous Krakow legends. Then we will go in the direction of Grodzka Street. The Segway tour of the Old Town will end at the Baroque Church of St. Peter and Paul.
KAZIMIERZ – SIGHTSEEING BY SEGWAY
During the second part of the tour you we will visit Kazimierz. This district is primarily associated with the history of the Jews, so during the tour you will see the Old Synagogue – the oldest Synagogue in Poland. By the way, we will also see Helena Rubinstein’s house and Jan Karski’s bench, which are located on Szeroka Street, one of the most important points of Kazimierz, bustling with life not only during the day, but also until late at night.
Further sightseeing of Kazimierz will lead us to the other side of the Vistula River, where we will visit places associated with the Jewish ghetto. We will also go by Segway to the Ghetto Heroes Square, where there is an unusual monument commemorating the tragic history of this place. The guide will tell us about the events that took place here during World War II. The last point of our tour will be the factory of Oskar Schindler, the entrepreneur who saved over 1,000 Jews from extermination.
A Segway tour of the Old Town takes about 2 hours, as does a Segway tour of Kazimierz. The whole tour (Old Town + Kazimierz) takes about 4 hours and you can visit many of the most important historical monuments in Krakow.
We would like to reassure all those who would like to take a Segway tour but have never ridden a Segway before that it is not an obstacle. Riding a Segway is so intuitive that a few minutes of instruction and a few attempts are enough to master the control of the vehicle. Each subsequent minute spent on the Segway becomes pure pleasure, which will remain in your memory for a long time.
The price of the Segway tour depends on the variant of the chosen route. Visiting the Old Town and Kazimierz costs 340 PLN per person, and choosing one part of the tour costs 180 PLN per person. The tour can only take place if there are at least 2 participants.
I invite you to visit Krakow on a Segway. This type of tour will allow not only to see the most important monuments related to the history of the city, but also to feel the joy of riding a Segway.
