Hamsa was such a great tour guide, she really has so much knowledge about the history here. She explained everything so well in a way that helped you understand better what has happened here. Also I really liked that she made you feel comfortable to ask questions and that she was happy to answer them. Thank you Hamsa, I hope that more people like you continue to tell the story and preserve the history.

Krakow Jewish Quarter Free Walking Tour Itinerary

The free tour begins at the Old Synagogue in the heart of Krakow's Jewish Quarter, or Kazimierz, which for centuries was the centre of Jewish life in the city, since its foundation as an independent city by King Kazimierz III in the 14th century.

Exploring Szeroka Street, which is the epicentre of the Jewish Quarter, you'll learn all about some of Krakow's most important Jewish places of worship and their tumultuous history in the Second World War. Discover the Old Synagogue, built in the early 15th century; the Remuh Synagogue, which has the city's oldest Jewish graveyard; and the Isaac Synagogue, the biggest in an area full of Jewish temples!

Hear all about the rich heritage of Jewish culture and history in Poland visiting the Jewish Community Centre, before making your way to Plac Nowy, or New Square, well known for its food stalls selling typical cuisine. Make sure you try zapiekanki, a local speciality, before you leave Krakow!

Your free tour will also take you to see some of the places where the Oscar winning film Schindler's List was shot, before coming to an end in the elegant Plac Wolnica square.
