The proposed route is approx. 3,5 km long. It presents the complex of the Old and New Town, entered on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List, as an example of the reconstruction of almost completely destroyed historic buildings. It is necessary to allocate for its circumvention and a cursory tour 4-6 hours.
We start our walk around the Old and New Towns at Castle Square. It is located at the intersection of streets: Krakowskie Przedmieście Street, Senatorska, Podwala, Piwna and Świętojańska streets. The W-Z Route, built directly after World War II, runs under a part of the square. The area of the square from the 13th century. it was first connected with the hillfort situated on the bank of the Vistula River, then the castle of Masovian dukes and the royal residence that was established later. At the beginning of the 19th century. the square was significantly enlarged, At that time, part of the medieval city walls and the Kraków Gate situated at the end of ul. Senatorska. The present appearance of the square was shaped in the years 1977-78 in connection with the reconstruction of the Royal Castle. Then its surface was lowered and lined with sandstone slabs and paving stones. The Gothic bridge over the moat, discovered during the archaeological research at that time, was exposed. The course of the demolished city walls was also marked on the surface of the square with burnt bricks. There is a column of Sigismund III Vasa in the square. It was built in 1644 r. founded by King Władysław IV – son of King Sigismund III and at the same time his successor on the throne of Poland.
