A Walk in Kazimierz -

Jewish Quarter Free Tour


Jewish Quarter Free Tour

Join us as we delve into the 700-year-old history of Kazimierz. From its roots as an independent Royal City, to being the centre of Jewish life in Poland; you will learn the history of this fascinating area and how that history was irrevocably changed by the Second World War.


In this 2.5 hour tour, we visit the Old Synagogue at the heart of the Jewish quarter and learn about the Nazi occupation during World War Two. We discuss heroes of the war like Oskar Schindler, as well as visiting filming locations from the movie Schindler's List. We visit the site of the former Krakow ghetto and the learn the significance of the 'Empty Chairs' memorial.

You will also learn about Kazimierz since the war- the area's communist history, and get to see how this once forgotten part of Krakow, is now a revived hub of street art and great food. No trip to Krakow is complete without a visit to the Jewish Quarter.
