About the Tour

Join us as we delve into the 700-year history of Kazimierz. From its roots as an independent royal city to its irrevocable link to Jewish life in Poland. On this 2.5 hour tour, we will visit the old synagogue in the heart of the Jewish quarter and discuss the Nazi occupation during WWII, as well as visit the old ghetto and the monument to the heroes of the ghetto. You will also learn about Kazimierz since the war, it is communist history and then you will see how this once forgotten part of Krakow is now brought to life with street art and street food at every turn. No trip to Krakow is complete without a visit to the Jewish Quarter.

My guide was Karolina. I was so impressed with her knowledge, professional approach and command of English that I also took part in the afternoon tour. Within a few hours I learnt a substantial part of the history of Krakow and thanks to Karolina it was a very pleasant experience. I recommend a tour of Krakow to everyone; I think it contributes to the creation of a special relationship with this beautiful city.

It was a great tour with Rudolf. He has so much knowledge and stories to tell. I highly recommend this tour to everyone.

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.
