Full description

Learn about the dark history of Poland on this guided tour. Start your tour with pickup by your instructor who will explain to you the sightseeing plan for the day before starting your audio-guided tour of Kazimierz and Podgórze district.   For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place of coexistence and interpenetration of ethnic Polish and Jewish cultures. Its Jewish inhabitants were forcibly relocated in 1941 by the German occupying forces into the Krakow ghetto just across the river in Podgórze. Today, Kazimierz is an important center of cultural life in the city. Explore Plac Bohaterów Getta, Ghetto Heroes Square, 6 synagogues, Szeroka Street, and more. The last stop on your tour will be a 2-hour visit to Oskar Schindler’s Factory. This museum tells the story of Oskar Schindler and the fate of the Jews during wartime in Krakow. Using vast archival documents, photos, radio and film recordings, period artifacts, and dynamic media installations, you’ll delve even deeper into the darker sides of Krakow’s history.

L'heure du départ a été reportée. Il y avait yn problème avec l'audioguide et le tour commençait par le musée de Schindler. Le guide voulait nous laisser une heure de visite. Nous avons pu négocier une heure trente (2 heures annoncées par getyourguide) . Nous avons dû demander la visite des 2 autres musées, le guide n'était pas au courant,mais nous y a amené ensuite. La visite du musée de Schindler était très intéressante, un audio guide aurait été agréable, mais n'était pas fourni..

Incroyablement bien reconstitué ! Dans ce musée nous avons l’impression de revivre l’histoire de Cracovie pendant la 2eme guerre mondiale et en particulier nous revivons la triste histoire subie par la communauté juive, comme si nous y étions ! À ne surtout pas rater !

Awesome tourguide Polina, who has answered all of our questions and is an excellent driver! The tour was very interesting and impressive, beautiful to see the Jewish quarter. The Oscar Schindler museum was very interesting. Polina gave us restaurant recommendations and dropped us off where conveniently for us. Great tour, highly recommended
