About the tour

Join us as we delve into the 700-year-old history of Kazimierz. From its 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 at the heart of the Jewish quarter and discuss the Nazi occupation during World War Two, as well as visit the site of the former ghetto and the Ghetto Heroes memorial.

You will also learn about Kazimierz since the war, it’s communist history and then get to 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.

Booked 2 tours today in Kraków both were done by By Blue city tour walker Karolina. Exceptional knowledge on the history behind both tours, covered more than we would have expected to cover, very well spoken English and a professionally conducted tour, would highly recommend. Thank you 11/10

We did the tour with Dale and thought the whole experience was amazing! You can tell that not only had he really done his research but that it was something he was really passionate about. We left a little bit wiser!

Well worth doing. So glad I didn't allow myself to be drawn into another earlier group and waited those 5 extra minutes. Dale was friendly, informative and English. Would definitely recommend.
