Krakow Old Town and Jewish District  – 6hrs

All of Krakow Small Group Walking Tour

Join Krakow Old Town and Jewish District tour to discover historic heart of Krakow! This tour is a great investment to maximize your time in Krakow with a specialist guide and a group of max 8 people.

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.

Krakow has a large student population so it is lively, upbeat and full of life. It is also home to some spectacular and significant churches and cathedrals. Our Krakow Old Town and Jewish District walking tour includes stops at the most prominent churches of Krakow.

Krakow’s old quarter offers many things to do. Besides the castle and the churches, a clutch of excellent museums provide cultural diversion and your local guide will also point out things to do on your own when your tour finishes.  Downtown Krakow is great with many local eateries  so your guide will recommend one before you proceed into the second part of your tour.

Second half of the 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.

Join our Krakow Old Town and Jewish District tour  to get acquainted with Krakow’s history in an efficient way organized professionally and led by a local guide.

You can choose to go private or join a small group of max 8 so the experience is always intimate. This tour runs everyday and starts at 65Euros per person.
