Learn more about jewish heritage in Krakow and see the traces of „Schindler List” by S. Spilberg
One of the largest Jewish communities lived in Poland for 1, 000 years. Jews first arrived in Polish lands as traveling merchants in medieval times. The catastrophe of Holocaust destroyed its rich culture. Nowadays Jews can be found praying and klezmer- traditional jewish music can be heard again.
I invite you for an unforgettable walk through a charming Kazimierz. This Krakow’s district is heart of Jewish culture in Poland where two cultures Christian and Jewish coexisted for more than 500 years. It was once a separate royal city founded in XIV century now included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The history of Kazimierz is also connected with another district – Podgórze. During the Second World War in Podgórze district there was a Jewish ghetto created by Nazi Germany and also Oskar Schindler’s Factory, whose history was filmed by Steven Spielberg.
Today Kazimierz attracts with its unique atmosphere and great examples of Jewish architecture. Let me share with you the history of that place.
The tour starts usually at Szeroka street, however I can pick you up from your hotel.
We will walk through the jewish district passing places mentioned below. We will walk through Love bridge to the Ghetto to see the famous Schindler’s Factory.
You can visit Schindler’s Factory exhibition „Krakow under Nazi occupation” on your own. Schindler’s Factory is interactive and the best idea is to visit it by yourself.
