Full description
The Holocaust almost totally destroyed the rich culture of Polish Jews. Almost. Experience a mixture of feelings — perhaps sadness, nostalgia, and hope, as you discover the rebirth of Krakow’s Jewish district on this guided afternoon tour. Meet your guide in one of the most interesting parts of Krakow, Kazimierz, the only Jewish city of medieval Europe that has survived to this day. Nowadays, Kazimierz is one of the most popular parts of Krakow, with a unique, bohemian atmosphere and a vibrant nightlife. As you walk through the area, talk with your guide about the co-existence of two cultures and religions, the traditions of Krakow’s Jews, their customs, and famous Poles of Jewish origin.   On numerous squares, surrounded by synagogues, and near the ghetto wall, learn about events that were important for Jewish history and culture. Together, you’ll search for answers to difficult questions that concern us all.

    We highly recommend Tomas and this tour to other guests! It was very interesting and we could have listened to Tomas for another couple of hours. He has a great knowledge about history, good language skills and a good sense of humor. We really enjoyed the tour - thank you so much!

    I had a lot to meet Massel, such a good, well-informed and cheerful city guide. The time went by in a flash and I soaked up the words about the moving history of the Jews in this city with open mouth and heart. Thanks for the unforgettable impressions Thomas and a lot of strength, health and love for this tour.

    Die Führung durch das Krakauer Viertel Kazimierz, wurde von einem sehr kompetenten und lustigen Tourguide durchgeführt. Der Guide verfügte über sehr gute Deutschkenntnisse und über einen sehr hohen Wissenstand, im Bezug auf die Geschichte Krakaus. Durch die Tour erhielten wir nicht nur einen Einblick in die Geschichte Krakaus, sondern auch in die kulturellen Aspekte des Judentums. Die Erwartungen an die Tour wurden in jedem Fall übertroffen und ich kann sie jedem empfehlen, der auch Interesse daran hat, Krakau auch außerhalb der Touristen-Hotspots kennenzulernen.
