What makes this tour special

This historic tour takes you through the Jewish story in Krakow, dating back centuries in the city’s Jewish quarter through life under the Nazi regime. On your private tour you will:

Please note, due to Covid-19, the Old Jewish Cemetery may be closed to tourists. If this is the case on the day of your tour, your guide will provide alternative options of places to visit instead. 

On your private tour, you will visit Kazimierz, a district that flourished with Jewish culture as early as the 15th century. Here, you will explore many of the areas that you might have seen in the Oscar-Award-Winning Schindler’s List film. Our journey will end at Oscar Schindler’s Factory, after which your guide can make some fabulous dinner recommendations. 

After learning several centuries of the history of the Jewish people in Krakow, your guide will tell you the history of the Nazi occupation of Poland the devastation experienced by the Jewish people in the country. 

You will be taken through the famed ‘Schindler’s Passage’ and visit the Old Synagogue —now a museum, which is the oldest still standing in Poland, having been built in the 15th century. While there, your guide will share with you the Jewish experience after the German invasion of 1939, and what the synagogue now means to Jewish people in Poland. 

After, you will visit the Remuh Synagogue and Cemetery – a small sixteenth-century synagogue, and enjoy a small coffee break before continuing on your tour.  From there, your guide will take you to Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory, where your guide will take you on a tour. Here, you will learn of the German industrialist’s efforts to save Jewish people in Krakow from the local ghetto, concentration camps, and death. 

After your tour, you will be driven back to central Krakow and dropped off at your hotel or a location of your choosing.
