About the tour

Join our free tour of the Jewish Kazimierz and the Ghetto to explore the places where the Jewish community thrived before the Holocaust.

The Jewish Quarter in Krakow is an exceptional place, as this is the only Quarter of its kind that survived the Nazi occupation in Poland. Why? and What are the historians’ theories about it? We will bring it to light during our tour that covers the most important synagogues in Kazimierz district and the places where famous Jewish people lived peacefully next to the Christian community for centuries. The last part of our tour will take you to the Ghetto where Nazis located all the Jews of Krakow in March 1941.

We will talk about the Holocaust, Oscar Schindler, ‘Schindler’s List’ by Spielberg, and many other important issues. On the way back we will walk along the same streets where Schindler's List was filmed.
