What You Can Expect

Small-Group Walking Tour of Kazimierz Including Optional Oskar Schindler's Factory Visit

Old Synagogue in Kazimierz in Krakow

Meet your guide and take off through the Planty Gardens to see the former home of Oskar Schindler, who saved the lives of over a thousand Polish Jews during World War II.

Continue to Poselska Street, depicted in one of the tragic scenes in the movie. Then leave the Old Town and travel to the Jewish Quarter in Kazimierz. Home to a large Jewish community from the 1300s to World War II, the landscape of Kazimierz changed drastically during the Holocaust, when the community disappeared as a result of mass deportations. See the old Jewish ghetto on Szeroka Street, also depicted in the film.

After taking a short rest break in Kazimierz, walk to the district of Podgorze, on the other side of the Vistula River. Cross the Piłsudskiego Bridge to the WWII Ghetto in Krakow-Podgorze, established in March 1941. See the remaining part of the original WWII Ghetto wall and Ghetto Heroes Square.

Conclude your tour with a stop at Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory, where many Jewish lives were saved during WWII. Today the factory has been renovated into a museum dedicated to the stories and history of the lives lost. Finish the tour in front of the museum, or continue on a guided tour inside if option selected at checkout.

A must do as Krakow is a city of enormous history. Our guide was amazing, fun and full of interesting stories and facts. He was incredible knowledgeable and really took time to answer questions and be personable. We covered so much during our 3 hours and I saw everything I came to see.

Thanks!

This tour was very interesting and it gave me a lot of insight about the Kazimierz Jewish Quarter. A lot of the sights we visited I wouldn't have gone on my own. A great way to discover one of the liveliest districts in Krakow.

I would highly recommend this tour if you're interested in learning about the history of the Jewish people in Krakow. We covered a lot of ground ending at Schindler's Factory during the tour, but the best part was our guide. Big guy with a voice to match, who is a subject area expert in all that he covers. I feel terrible because I don't recall the guide's name, but if you book this tour and see this guy at the beginning, you're in for a treat.

Friendly and informative guide. The tour met our expectations really well. Finishing at the Oskar Schindler museum gave us an opportunity to look around afterwards on our own and we returned to Kazimierz afterwards for a delicious lunch. A great tour.
