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.

Muy recomendable el tour de Hola Cracovia del Barrio Judío y Guetto. Hicimos el tour con Alex (Alejandro), me parecio súper interesante y respetuosa la forma de Alex de acercarnos a la historia de Cracovia y en particular de la comunidad judía. Aprendimos muchas cosas y hechos que no conocíamos y nos quedamos con ganas de más. Gracias Alex por el tiempo y compartir tus conocimientos, y a -1 grados!!

Roberto fue un magnífico guia con el que conocimos el barrio judío previo a la segunda guera mundial, sus inicios e historia y posteriormente conocimos el gueto. Muy aconsejable y ameno las 3h que estuvimos

El tour con Alex por el barrio judío y el gueto fue muy ameno e interesante, permitiéndonos a los visitantes entender la historia detrás de cada calle, rincón o sinagoga. Alex se esforzó por darnos una imagen muy realista y objetiva de lo que se vivió en ese barrio antes, durante y después de la II Guerra Mundial . ¡ Totalmente recomendable !
