Immerse yourself in Kazimierz, the most local and beloved district in Krakow. This is the former Jewish quarter of Krakow, where every single home and building has its own fascinating story to tell — stories that we’ll discover as we explore, eat, drink, and mingle with locals. This tour will blend Krakow’s past and present in a way that showcases how the city’s history helped to shape the Krakow you see today.
We will show you the synagogue and old Jewish cemetery and we will visit a WWII Museum located in the Schindler’s Factory without a line. We will take you to the real, not touristic part of Kazimierz and Podgórze neighborhoods you will never find without us
We’ll wind our way along narrow, hidden laneways, through the most important streets and squares of Kazimierz, where you’ll see just how seamlessly the present blends with the past.
Curious about what we mean? Imagine a square, which once housed a kosher slaughterhouse; that’s where you’ll now find one of the best spots to get a favorite local snack in Krakow, zapiekanka, an open-face sandwich stuffed with cheese and sautéed mushrooms.
It’s a unique neighborhood where the old and new coexist, where art galleries and cafes share equal space with monuments of Jewish culture. This is also the neighborhood in which portions of Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List were filmed.
As we walk you’ll get an even better sense of how well this bohemian district can feel both modern and historic all at once. Synagogues and cultural centers stand side-by-side with charming bars and restaurants, while original Jewish inscriptions meet with modern murals, and kosher, traditional food can be found alongside Indian or Mexican food trucks.
