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.

Overall experience was great. Jimmy was a fantastic guy who is very knowledgeable (he’s a Historian). Answered all my questions and provided a good tour experience. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is because the tour says the Rhemu Synagogue ticket is included but it was not—nor was anything mentioned about visiting there. So it felt misleading. Other that that, all good.

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!

Guide très très professionnel, très au fait de l'histoire même dans des petits détails, très dynamique et à l'écoute. Bemol : on ne rentre pas dans tous les lieux importants du quartier juif. Prévoyez donc du temps avant ou après pour compléter la visite et Getyourguide ne précise pas les lieux qui seront visités, pas de détail du parcours
