Full description
Learn about the Jewish heritage of the city of Krakow on a guided tour. Start the tour outside the Old Synagogue in the Kazimierz district. This district has been home to the Jewish community for centuries. Explore the charming streets of this now trendy neighborhood with your guide, as you learn about the history of Jewish people in Krakow. Next, visit Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory. Learn about the horrors of the Holocaust, and Oskar Schindler's heroic efforts to save Jewish people from the concentration camps operated by the Nazi regime. Finally, make your way to the site of the former Jewish ghetto, where many Jews were forced to live during the Nazi occupation of Poland. Learn about the suffering and overcrowded conditions endured by the Jewish community.

A great and very informative tour. It is a great advantage that you can walk - apart from a short tram ride - and therefore experience the city "up close". Annette is a very knowledgeable and emphatic guide who made the tour a real highlight.
