Jewish Kraków – a guided tour (Thursday, September 7, 2023)

Cost: 50 PLN/person (payable on site on the day of the tour)

The history of the Jewish community of Krakow is over 750 years long. The remains of the oldest Jewish district can still be found in the Old Town of Krakow. After the fire that destroyed a big part of the town in 1494, the Jews were forced to leave the Polish capital. Looking for a new place to live, they got to Kazimierz, a town nearby, on the other bank of the river. This is where they settled, this is where they created their new district that survived the centuries, even the most difficult one, 20th century. Today we can walk the same streets, visit the same buildings and this is the best setting for a discussion about the history of the Jewish community of Krakow – from Medieval times up to last week.

During the tour you will see the oldest part of the Jewish district, Szeroka street. We will also visit the oldest synagogue in Poland that is still regularly used for prayer – Remuh Synagogue. I will also take you to the oldest Jewish cemetery in Poland. The tour will end with places that are extremely important for Kazimierz today – both Jewish and not.

The tour will be guided in English by Alicja Zioło, licensed tour guide in Krakow, with over 10 years experience in guiding foreigners.
