About the tour

The best way to get to know the most important places in the history of Krakow. One free tour instead of two! During this tour, our local guides will help you to discover the history of the former royal capital of Poland and also that of the Jewish community that also left an indelible mark on the former city of Kazimierz (what we now know as the Jewish Quarter).

We start in the Market Square to talk about the city foundation and reveal the history of the Town Hall Tower, the Kraków Cloth Hall and the St. Mary's Basilica. Then our tour will take you to visit the university area of ​​the Old Town, the Pope’s window and the churches of St. Andrew and of St. Peter and St. Paul. We will talk about Wawel Castle and how this hill reflects the history of Poland and we will start our way to the Kazimierz district.

After a short pause, the second part of the tour will take you to the old Jewish District of Krakow and there we will tell you the story of how they came to the city, settled and prospered. You will see different synagogues, visit locations from the famous movie Schindler's List, and we will talk about Jewish culture and its importance in the development of the city and the aftermaths of the IIWW.
