The Jewish population in Krakow greatly influenced & enriched the city’s culture & heritage and this is no more evident than in the historical district of Kazimierz, an important centre of cultural life in Krakow today. This free walking tour is perfect for getting an unrivaled insight to this area and the vast history that comes with it as well as exploring Krakow ghetto & the devastating history of forced Jewish re-location. A roller-coaster of emotion, this tour is delivered impeccably well by genuine guides, giving a well-balanced, all-encompassing account of Jewish history here and the significance of the area to Krakow and Poland today, a free-spirited & creative area with a positive, enjoyable beat.
A Jewish world without Kazimierz would be as empty as a body without a soul. In a different time, in a different Kazimierz, one of the greatest Jewish scholars to ever life said: “the aim of man is to search for the cause and the meaning of things”. Let’s follow his advice and go deeper into the history of the Jewish presence in Kraków.
Let us take you to Kraków’s Kazimierz and Kraków’s ghetto. You will hear hair-raising stories, but you will also hear ones that are uplifting and offer comfort. Here you can also face and challenge some of the stereotypes about Poland, Polish Jews and Polish-Jewish relations.
