Jews who in the Middle Ages were persecuted in Western Europe began to settle in Kazimierz, soon this city became a place of Jewish prosperity. It is here that synagogues can be found, picturesque streets in which the hustle and bustle of Jewish life prevailed before the holocaust of World War II.
See Poland's oldest synagogue, tour "Schindler's List" filming locations, learn who Ashkenazim and Sephardi are, meet some of the Polish Jews who went down in history.
This tour ends in the heart of the old Ghetto, in the Plaza de Los Heroes del ghetto a few meters from the Oscar Schindler Factory.
Join us for a 2:30 hour tour where we will discover the Jewish heritage in Krakow, learn about its traditions and iconic characters who created Jewish history in Poland.

Muy buen tour por el barrio judio (Kazimierz) y el guetto de la segunda guerra mundial. Gracias a Haizea pudimos entender mucho mejor la historia de esta maravillosa ciudad y cómo fue cambiando durante la segunda cuerra mundial todo este barrio/gueto

I recommend doing the Jewish quarter tour and to do it with Bart. It was informative, interesting and the guide had a great style of telling the story of the Jewish community living in Krakow

Una visita muy interesante por el barrio judio y el ghetto. Me parece fundamental hacer el tour si se quiere conocer la historia de lo ocurrido en ese lugar ya que la información por la ciudad es prácticamente nula. Santiago fue un gran guía, nos dio datos muy interesantes y la verdad es que las dos horas y pico de duración del tour se me pasaron volando. Además nos recomendó un bar que nos encantó.

Aisea ha sido muy amable y ha estado pendiente de nosotros en todo momento. Respondiendo con paciencia y asertividad a todas nuestras preguntas Si no hubiera sido por el tour, seguramente no hubiéramos visitado tan bien el barrio judío y el ghetto; y no hubiéramos entendido la historia
