Krakow Jewish District Walking Tour – 3hrs
All of Kazimers Small Group Walking Tour
Join Krakow Jewish District walking tour to discover Kazimierz in Krakow! This tour is a great sequel to our old town tour.
Krakow is Poland’s second city and was the former capital . It is upstanding and architecturally fine: the showpiece Wawel Castle and Rynek Glowny, Europe’s largest medieval city square, is truly superb. During the Second World War, the Nazis decided they rather liked Krakow, so made it their home in a country whose population they wished to exterminate. While the rest of Poland was bombed, the old city was preserved.
Our walking tour is focused on the Jewish District of Krakow: Kazimierz. Kazimierz was once an independent town, governedseparately from Krakow until the late middle ages. Later, it became known as the Jewish Quarter of the city and was finally transformed into a center for Krakow’s beatnik bars and cafe culture. All that history makes for one awesome array of activities and sights.
While still dating all the way back to the 11th century, these areas have a distinct style to them. Kazimierz, for one, was officially designated as a Jewish settlement from the 13th century onwards, which meant that synagogues took the place of monumental churches.
