Krakow: Kazimierz District Jewish Heritage Tour

1. Krakow: Kazimierz District Jewish Heritage Tour

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.
