We will visit the famous patio on Józefa and Meiselsa streets, which appears in the film "Schindler's List" by Steven Spielberg. We will continue in the direction of Nowy Square, passing next to the Isaac's Synagogue. We will arrive at the Szeroka street, the center of Jewish life in Kazimierz. On the Wawel Hill we will admire the castle's patio from 16th century. This masterpiece of architecture, work of Francesco Fiorentino and Bartolomeo Berrecci is a perfect example of the renaissance style. Optionally, we can enter the Cathedral dedicated to Saints Stanislaus and Venceslaus. The Cathedral has more than one thousand years of history behind it, it was the place of coronation of Polish kings and serves as their burial site.

 

In the gothic basilica of Franciscan fathers we will admire the polychromy and the modernist stained glass windows, designed by Stanislaus Wyspiański. The impressive 19th century building of Collegium Novum is the seat of the rector of the Jagiellonian University. We will see the buildings of the Cracow Academy, which was funded in 1364 by the king Casimir the Great. It is now known as the Jagiellonian University, and its oldest building is the Collegium Maius from the  15th century. We will visit its spectacular patio.

 

Afterwards, we will proceed towards the Main Market Square, the largest medieval square in Europe. It dates back to 1257. It was built 10 years after a devastating Tatar invasion, which ravaged the city. We will walk through the Sukiennice, constructed in the 13th century. The building was remodelled in the 16th century, thanks to an artist from Florence, Santi Gucci. The building served as a market for all kinds of textiles, hence the name.

 

Optionally we can visit the Saint Mary's Basilica, which was the most important city of Cracow's bourgeoisie. Inside we can find an impressive wooden High Altar from the 15th century, which was carved by a German artist, Veit Stoss.
