Delve into the heart of Jewish culture in Poland on a free 3-hour walking tour of Kazimierz, the most vibrant Jewish quarter in Krakow, home to numerous unique synagogues and other striking landmarks.

Itinerary

Head to the Main Square, in the center of Krakow, to begin your free walking tour. Follow your local English-speaking guide to Kazimierz, established in the fourteenth century as an independent city where thousands of Jews and Christians coexisted for hundreds of years.

During the Middles Ages, Poland was one of the most progressive countries in Europe and thousands of Jews settled in the country, creating the largest European Jewish community. During World War II, Kazimierz district was destroyed by the Nazi troops and its inhabitants experienced terrifying events. Years later, Steven Spielberg would film Schindler’s List in Kazimierz. If you have seen the film, you will recognize many of the places you visit during the tour.

Your guide will lead you to the neighborhood’s seven synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery (Remah Cemetery). Then, you’ll walk across Lovers Bridge (Father Bernatek Footbridge) over Vistula River to Podgorze, where the Nazi Krakow Ghetto and Oscar Schindler’s factory were located. It is now home to the Ghetto Heroes Square, named in honor of the Holocaust victims.
