What to expect

See the beauty of the Kazimierz Jewish District, fraught 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 the city of Krakow had to face. During the guided walking tour, you will see the everyday reality of the “unfinished city” and listen to the story of the heroes of the Kazimierz district commemorating their experience. The itinerary of the guided walk includes exploration of historic tenements 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 will head to the Podgórze district on the other side of Vistula, where you will learn about the history of the Krakow Ghetto.
