Overview
An interactive small group tour where you’ll get fully acquainted with Krakow’s Jewish heritage.
What to Expect
Throughout the centuries Polish and Jewish history have been closely entwined, and no trip to Krakow would be complete without getting to know the the religious, artistic, and historical heritage of Krakow’s Jewish community. Jews played an important role in the country’s cultural, economic, and political life and this tour will take you through the ages with an expert guide to explore and understand important events over time.

Start the tour in the Old Town where you’ll hear about the origin of the Jewish community in the middle ages before making your way over to the Podgorze district which was a key site during the most devastating event of the 20th century for Europe’s Jews - the Holocaust. Here you’ll not only visit the memorial to those who perished during the war, but also hear the heroic stories of those who risked their livelihoods to save others, including Oscar Schindler.

Then make your way back over the Vistula river to Kazimierz - once  home to more than 65,000 Jews and the center of Jewish life in Krakow. Learn about thriving Jewish life in the past and present, get to know some of the most important characters from this community and the work of Krakow’s Jews that was felt throughout the world. The tour includes an interior visit and entry ticket to both the Tempel and Remu Synagogue and the Old Jewish Cemetery, and you’ll also learn about the Old Synagogue, Isaac’s Synagogue, kosher shops, and Jewish cultural centers. This tour also includes a short refreshment break where you’ll have further opportunity to get hints and tips from your expert guide.
