Kazimierz Tour: The Jewish Quarter

Streets, secrets and history throughout the period of the Jewish settlement in the city of Krakow.

Kazimierz Tour: The Jewish Quarter

As one of the more tolerant regions in Europe, Jewish people began to settle in Krakow beginning in the 12th century. And from the 15th century onward through the beginning of WWII, Krakow was home to one of the largest and most significant Jewish communities in the entire world. Today, while its total population of people in Poland has greatly diminished, the Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz remains the beating heart of Jewish culture in Poland.

Today, while its total population of people in Poland has greatly diminished, the Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz remains the beating heart of Jewish culture in Poland.

Of course a walk through Kazimierz is really a lesson in its part of Jewish history, art, culture, and architecture. And on this tour we explore, learn, and remember the tragedy of the Holocaust and World War II, a part of which served as the inspiration for the film, ‘’Schindler’s List.’’

But let us also revel in Kazimierz’s glory, for it is obvious to any traveler that there is something special and distinct about the Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz that might be, perhaps to many, a pleasant surprise. Its streets are picturesque, replete with splendid homes and buildings in every direction. Restaurants and coffee shops and bars abound, and Kazimierz is also the place where so many of the best artisans in the city call home. Indeed, there are synagogues, museums, and iconic squares to be seen, and we visit them all on this tour through one of the most prominent Jewish neighborhoods in the entire world.

So don’t miss this opportunity to visit and explore with us a place and a time, however many centuries old, that we must never forget. Our Kazimierz Tour within the jewish quarter of Krakow is the best option for you.
