Krakow: Boo! Chills and Thrills Guided Walking Tour

1. Krakow: Boo! Chills and Thrills Guided Walking Tour

The tour starts after the sun goes down...we meet where there once was a medieval cemetery. You'll hear the legends that reveal wherefrom vampires arose to walk this realm. Creeping down the cobbled streets we visit the executioners' house and unriddle some myths about them. You will stand in the spot where grisly public executions were performed and view/inspect a chapel in which the convicts spent their last night on earth hoping for a miracle (which indeed for some lucky souls transpired). We follow the footsteps of a "gentleman" serial killer who revelled in appearing at local shindigs and venture to meet two of Kraków’s best-known ghosts - a lady in black and “The White Lady.” In the end, as the moon climbs high over the city, we'll speak of medieval crimes and punishments in an actual torture chamber. Join us for these bone-chilling frights and spine-tingling delights and don’t worry - we’ll bring the garlic!

The guide speaks very understandable English and makes an effort to paraphrase difficult words. It's more funny than scary but still very interesting. The total distance is not long, you walk maybe 1.5km. I learned a lot that I didn't know before

a very informative evening walk through Krakow. Anya brought Krakow to life with her bubbly nature and enthusiasm. I would recommend this tour if you are interested in the rich history of Krakow. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
