Full description
Join us for a tour to explore the historic south-east district of Krakow, Kazimierz, the historical centre of Jewish religious and social life. Kazimierz was originally founded as a separate town near Krakow where, since 14th century Jews had the right to settle and where a thriving Jewish community existed until the Second World War. We will start by walking down the central Szeroka Street and stopping by a remnant of the former market square. This square was home to the Old Synagogue, Isaac's Synagogue and the Remuh Synagogue. Stop for a moment to take in the history and importance of this place to the community that carried on for centuries. From there we will visit the Podgorze quarter, where the Jewish ghetto was established during the Nazi occupation of Poland. It is here that we will find Oskar Schindler's factory on 4 Lipowa Street. During World War II enamelled pots and pans were manufactured here. Schindler, an ethnic German industrialist from Czechoslovakia, saved Jews from labour camps by employing them in this factory. His and many others' stories were told in the acclaimed 1990s film, Schindler’s List.

    Our visit to the Jewish Quarter was fantastic and our guide brilliant!

    We loved our tour - it was a fantastic day and one we will remember. Our guide was very knowledgable and able to answer any questions we asked. The visit was really interesting to us and we did see much more than we thought we would. The guide was able to pass on to us lots of information especially in the Schindler museum (which was very busy). We really enjoyed the visit to the Jewish cemetery and our guide answered lots of questions on Jewish traditions and the renovation work being carried out at the cemetery.
