Discover Jewish District of Krakow with a Specialist

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 Krakow walking tour focuses on the Jewish District of Krakow: Kazimierz. Kazimierz was once an independent town, governed separately from Krakow until the late middle ages. Later, it became known as the Jewish Quarter of the city and 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.
