Rzeszow: Old Town Walk
Although Rzeszow is not a very popular tourist destination, it is definitely worth visiting. Its history began in 1354 when it received city rights. Location on the trade routes connecting the European Continent with the Middle East and the Ottoman Empire guaranteed prosperity and development. Later, as the result of Partitions of Poland, Rzeszow was annexed by the Austrian Empire. It regained its position on the Polish map after World War I. Join our guided tour and visit with us probably the most adorable Market Square of Eastern Europe, impressive castle of Lubomirski and many more.
