About the tour

Do you know, that Cracow contains of more impressive and beautiful places than only the Main Square and Wawel Castle?

Our city has way more interesting places to offer, and way more stories to tell you.

On this tour we invite you, to one of the most interesting districts in Cracow – Kazimierz.

Here, over the centuries, Christian culture coexisted with Jewish coulture.

When, at the end of XV century, Jews arrived to Kazimierz, life of it's inhabitants has changed, without a doubt.

Jews had to adapt to new surroundings too. How did they make it? How thei daily life looked like and how they got along with Christians? This, and many more, you will learn with us, on the tour!

We will take you on a journey through two, very different worlds.

You will hear a story of Cracow's Jews, from the date when they arrived to our city all the way to the begginning of World War II.

You will get to know Jewish feasts, habits and places in the Jewish Quarter (it is inside Kazimierz) that still remind us about this nation's culture, nation that for a long time made a high percentage of Cracow's inhabitants.

We will visit the Christian part of Kazimierz too, full of magnificent churches, that very often escape visitors's notice.

If you want to know, what the Jews are doing during the Sabbath, is honey a kosher food, who is allowed to pray in the Synagogues... Join us!

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
