Explore the old city of Warsaw on this Free Walking Tour

A city that suffered tremendous losses over the last 100 years is still standing. Experience the invincible spirit of Warsaw and learn about the heroism of its people.

Today’s Warsaw is like a patchwork quilt. A few original, grand prewar buildings; the fully reconstructed and colorful Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; hulking communist architecture and modern skyscrapers. It is different from any other place you’ve seen. Over the centuries, Warsaw has been the setting for many extraordinary events and people: the adoption of the world’s second-oldest democratic constitution in 1791, the music and life of Chopin and the birth of Marie Skłodowska-Curie. The wartime deeds of Hitler and Stalin left an indelible mark on the city. Warsaw is not only about the past. The thriving cultural scene, theater, music, fascinating museums, world-class restaurants, and shops make a visit to this city a stimulating experience.

Come and join our tour to understand Warsaw, Poles and Poland’s role in world history.

Reviews of the Free Walking Tour Warsaw

What people say about their experience on this tour

We had a great free walking tour in Old city of Warsaw. I learned so many historical facts and understood a lot about Polish people . The deep influence of church and their strong resistance to enemies. Thanks to Annushka our passionate guide , who puts a lot of efforts to discover Warsaw for us. She shared her love to city and it’s people and I started to love it too) I am strongly recommend you to join Free Wallative tour .
I count myself a veteran of the free walking tour. Do one wherever I go. But Jacek in Warsaw was another level. SO much knowledge, so interesting and really varied! My partner has been to Poland a few times, I’d never been - we both found it super interesting and accessible. Could not recommend the Warsaw old town walking tour more.
