Enjoy a tour of the Old Town and New Town of Warsaw and capture the unique panorama of buildings, monuments, market squares and people on camera in this photography tour. The Old Town and New Town are ideal for walks and photography tours - the whole area is mostly closed to traffic and provides spectacular scenery and unforgettable atmosphere. The Old Town, a UNESCO Heritage World Site, encompasses a history spanning seven centuries and provides innumerable and varied photographic opportunities to bring alive the rich cultural legacy of the city. Discover the churches and monasteries in New Town and shop at the bustling market square for souvenirs to remind you of your visit to the beautiful city of Warsaw.
This specially designed photography tour will help you to discover and experience a city through the eyes of a local photographer.
Your guide-cum-photographer has in-depth local knowledge, a passion for their city and for the art of photography. So bring your camera and be prepared to walk, shoot and click.
The tour departs from Plac Zamkowy - Royal Castle Square.
You will visit:
• Warsaw's Old Town: Walk down the quaint, cobbled streets and photograph the unique old architecture of the buildings. The old town is the oldest part of the city of Warsaw and one of its most prominent tourist attractions. See the market place, with its unique traditional Polish restaurants, cafés and shops. Surrounding streets feature medieval architecture such as the city walls, barbican and St. John's Cathedral. Warsaw's Old Town is listed in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites as "an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century."
• Warsaw's New Town: The new town was initially established to curb the unchecked growth that had snowballed beyond the city walls. See the market square, town hall and a number of churches and monasteries in this place.
Also see the Royal Castle and King Zygmunt's column. Enjoy a wide panoramic view from St. Ann's Church belfry as well as the building of National Library and the modern architecture of the Supreme Court located close to the New Town.
At the end of the session your photographer-guide will review some of the photos taken (if you are carrying a digital camera). You will have learnt the basics of composition, the importance of light in photography, how to take balanced and attractive images, and simple techniques to take "creative" images.
