Tour description

Despite undeniable charm of Kraków, the city still bears scars of the horrors of the Second World War. Traces of the German occupation still remain on the walls and streets of the city, but most of all they remain in the memories of our parents and grandparents, still haunting some of them at night.

World War II was a moment of the greatest trials and tribulations, a time that awoke the best in some and the worst in others. This was a time of courage and sacrifice, fear and treason. It was a moment in history when even the smallest decision could bear grave consequences.

Walk with us through the streets of Kraków, hear about the most brutal officers of the Nazi machine, and learn about the deadly tools they used to repress their victims. Hear about ordinary people facing the Nazi regime and rising up to become silent heroes. Let us surprise you with the most spectacular resistance actions taken by individuals and organised groups. Confront some of the most difficult decisions people had to make and try to answer: what would you do? Some of these questions remain valid even today, as they touch the very core of human nature.
We guarantee you will never see the city the same way after hearing these stories.
