About the tour

Join us as we delve into the 700-year-old history of Kazimierz. From the city's roots as an independent Royal City, to its irrevocable link to Jewish life in Poland.

In this 2.5 hour tour, we will visit the Old Synagogue and the most important historic sites at the heart of the Jewish quarter, as well as visit the site of the former ghetto and the empty chairs memorial. We discuss the Nazi occupation during World War Two, as well as the people like Oskar Schindler who carried out great deeds in the face of adversity.

You will also learn about Kazimierz since the war and see how this once forgotten part of Krakow is now revived with street art and street food at every turn. No trip to Krakow is complete without a visit to the Jewish Quarter.

We enjoyed this tour so much we went back the following day to do the Old Town. Our guide was Dale on both tours, he was really informative and it was a perfect way to see both sides of Kraków.

This was a great tour and a really good way to explore the city. The tour guide Carolina was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable. The info wasn't too heavy. Just the right amount of detail and plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Would definitely recommend! And if you are anything like me - dont like to read every placard with info, you love someone telling you everything you need to know. Plus, the tour is Free! Dont forget to tip though! They totally deserve it.
