Even if one of the tourists forgets that Munich was the capital of the Bavarian Kingdom for seven centuries, the very first sightseeing excursion of this magnificent city will remind of its former status, and a English-speaking guide will tell about the most glorious pages of its history. Cultural life is also very rich in the city: Munich is famous for its theaters and museums, especially the Old and New Pinakothek with their collections of painting masterpieces.
You can walk around this city all day in the company of a personal guide looking at one pearl of architecture after another and supplementing educational tourism with gastronomic excursions: by all accounts, Munich pubs are unmatched. Must-see sights include:
- the main town square, Marienplatz with two town halls and the Frauenkirche cathedral;
- St. Peter's Church founded in the 11th century.;
- St. Michael's Church - the tomb of the last kings of Bavaria;
- Nymphenburg palace surrounded by a luxurious park;
- Munich Residence, a complex of buildings where Bavarian kings and dukes lived (1001guide advises to visit the treasury with unique jewels);
- Opera theatre;
- English and Olympic parks (it is better to go on an excursion of them in the summer).
