Tour description

It is not possible to tell the history of Krakow without addressing the history of its Jewish community. During this three-hour tour we will tour the Kazimierz neighborhood, a 14th century city and the epicenter of Krakow's Jewish life until World War II. In this first part, you will see the Old Synagogue, an important memorial to commemorate the Cracovian Jewish victims of the holocaust, scenes from The Schindler's List, the Corpus Christi basilica and you will receive recommendations to make the most of the nightlife of this part of the city. The second part of this tour will take us to the Podgórze district where we will discover the streets of what was the Ghetto during the Nazi occupation. Here we can see the buildings where institutions such as the hospital or the work office were located and we will end up in the Plaza of the ghetto heroes, an impressive memorial with which we will close this story.

Un guía estupendo. Teniendo en cuenta que se abordaban una parte de la historia muy delicada su recorrido fue impecable y sus comentarios estuvieron cargados de sensibilidad.

Tour muy recomendable, los pelos de puntas. Ya no solo es la historia y los lugares visitados, también cuenta la forma de hacerlo de Alex, que ha conseguido una conexión total con el grupo y su forma de contarlo y sentir la historia. Muchas gracias Alex

Fue un free tour muy interesante. Las explicaciones geniales, respetuosas y sabiendo explicar aquello más importante pero a la vez darnos detalles y anécdotas que si no haces free tour no lo sabrías. Recomiendo a locos por Cracovia como una gran opción para hacer un free tour.
