About the tour

Join our free tour of the Jewish Kazimierz and the Ghetto to explore the places where the Jewish community thrived before the Holocaust.

The Jewish Quarter in Krakow is an exceptional place, as this is the only Quarter of its kind that survived the Nazi occupation in Poland. Why? and What are the historians’ theories about it? We will bring it to light during our tour that covers the most important synagogues in Kazimierz district and the places where famous Jewish people lived peacefully next to the Christian community for centuries. The last part of our tour will take you to the Ghetto where Nazis located all the Jews of Krakow in March 1941.

We will talk about the Holocaust, Oscar Schindler, ‘Schindler’s List’ by Spielberg, and many other important issues. On the way back we will walk along the same streets where Schindler's List was filmed.

We did not walk to the lover's Bridge or through the getto really. The guide just pointed where I could go. The tour should've lasted 2 hrs. It lasted only 1 hr 25 minutes. Though Ela was nice I did not get the full experience of what was mentioned. That was unfortunate. Very nice person though

Response from Cracow Free Tours:

Dear traveller, you were the only person that was on this tour and the guide told you at the beginning that the tour would be a little bit shorter, this is a regular procedure in this case. But you got all the information we tell people during this tour because the guide could walk and talk to you at the same moment as you were the only customer and the district was empty ( not many people visit now Krakow). The tour finished at the edge of the Jewish Quarter and the guide explained how to pass the river using Lovers' Bridge and where the Ghetto Square was, both were easy to reach from that place. All the history of them was included during the tour and the guide explained the meaning of the sculptures on the bridge and the artistic installation at the Ghetto Square. So actually you got the full experience of the tour and the guide answered all your questions as well. Best regards, Cracow Free Tours Team
