During the walk, the participants will learn about the history of the oldest hospitals in the city; we will find out how epidemics were dealt with in the days of old, discover the places which still host miraculous paintings and sculptures – old praying places, where the urban dwellers prayed in difficult times, and find out why burials were forbidden within the city limits during the Partitions of Poland, and why there are so many references to saints in the names of Krakow streets.
