This private tour in Krakow concerns several most popular and intriguing places linked to the Jewish history in Poland. We will start our walking tour from the former Jewish quarter at the Szeroka street-center. It was a very important place to the Jews in the previous centuries. We will definitely visit several synagogues: the Remuh synagogue, the Old synagogue, the Izaak’s synagogue, the High synagogue, and the old Jewish cemetery. There are lots of other Jewish landmarks in Krakow.

The Kazimierz district still has this unique atmosphere indicating to the presence of the Jews. IN order to get more information about the Jews in Poland we can visit the Museum of Judaism, which is located in the Old synagogue. The building itself is very old; it was built at eh beginning of the 15th century, and then rebuilt to resemble the Renaissance edifices. You might also want to visit the old 19th century Tempel situated at the Miodowa Street, and the Popper’s Synagogue. Kazimierz’s Old Jewish cemetery is definitely a must-see for any tourist or traveler. Once it was called the Remuh cemetery, but later it was named after the famous medieval rabbi and religious writer. Even after so many years pious Jews still come to pray at his grave and the graves of other remarkable and legendary people buried there.

The cemetery was active up till the end of the 18th century. Most of its monuments and obmstones date back from the Renaissance epoch, which makes it one of the most interesting places in Europe. During the tour we will walk along the streets that may seem you familiar. They are recognizable from the great movie by Steven Spielberg – “The Schindler’s List”. It was filmed in Krakow several years ago. In the end of the tour we will visit the factory of Oscar Schindler which hosts an exhibition about Krakow during the period of the Nazi occupation. As your private guide in Poland I will be assisting you during the tour and answering all the questions you have regarding the history and culture of Poland
