Full description
Having been established as a city on the island in close vicinity of Krakow, Kazimierz was supposed to become a competition to its neighbour – Krakow. The Jews who in the Middle Ages were prosecuted in the Western Europe started settling in Kazimierz and soon this city became a place of Jewish prosperity. It is here where you can find Jewish synagogues, cozy and tiny streets on which the hustle and bustle of Jewish life was prevailing before the catastrophe of WW2. See the oldest synagogue in Poland, trace the filming spots of the ‘Schindler’s List’ ,learn who are Ashkenazim and Sephardim, get to know Helena Rubinstein, Roman Polanski, Ludwick Zamenhof, and Maximilian Faktorowicz. Join us for 2.5-hour tour where we will discover the Jewish heritage in Krakow, get to know their traditions and exciting people who were creating the Jewish history in Poland.

Our guide, Bart, was absolutely amazing. Among the best. The only thing you pay for here at GYG is the booking fee and then you pay whatever you want directly to Bart after the guide. It's quite a long walk so make sure you have comfortable shoes and it may not be for small children or you who are physically challenged. But the guidance is fantastic. Informative, in excellent English and lots of facts and anecdotes. Highly recommended but as I said, it's a long way to go at 2.5 hours.
