Rzeszow City Tour

History of Rzeszow as a fortified settlement on the Wislok river dates back to as early as the 14th century. Did you know that Rzeszow’s Old Town is not the oldest part of the city? Now it is hard to believe but for centuries it was just a small village. Let us take you for a trip through land and history and show you both the most popular spots of the known Old Town as well as the former rural area of the original town of Rzeszow. We will make sure you see all the highlight of the city such as Lubomirski Palace and the synagogues but also the area that used to be initial Rzeszow and some modern housing estates – all this will allow you to have a deep insight into the historical and social changes the city has gone through over the centuries.
