Explore Kazimierz, the Jewish Quarter in Krakow
An unusual trip — as the locals say — to Kazimierz is an opportunity to see the beauty of the Jewish district, filled with quaint narrow streets, tenement houses, and coffee shops, where people from around the world meet every day. The story of “the city inside the city” reports the historic events the Jewish residents of the Kazimierz district and of the city of Krakow had to face.
During the guided walk, you can see the lively everyday reality of the “unfinished city” and hear the story of the heroes of the Kazimierz district commemorating their experience. The guided walk includes the exploration of historic tenement houses, artistic coffee shops, Jewish synagogues (e.g. the Old Synagogue, the Tempel Synagogue, and the Izaak Jakubowicz Synagogue), and a visit to the New Jewish Cemetery.
Finally, you go to the Podgórze district on the other side of Vistula, where you learn about the history of the Krakow Ghetto — e.g. about the former Enamel Factory of Oskar Schindler, who saved the lives of hundreds of Poles and Jews during the Nazi extermination.
