Full description

Learn about the dark history of Poland on this guided tour. Start your tour with pickup by your instructor who will explain to you the sightseeing plan for the day before starting your audio-guided tour of Kazimierz and Podgórze district.   For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place of coexistence and interpenetration of ethnic Polish and Jewish cultures. Its Jewish inhabitants were forcibly relocated in 1941 by the German occupying forces into the Krakow ghetto just across the river in Podgórze. Today, Kazimierz is an important center of cultural life in the city. Explore Plac Bohaterów Getta, Ghetto Heroes Square, 6 synagogues, Szeroka Street, and more. The last stop on your tour will be a 2-hour visit to Oskar Schindler’s Factory. This museum tells the story of Oskar Schindler and the fate of the Jews during wartime in Krakow. Using vast archival documents, photos, radio and film recordings, period artifacts, and dynamic media installations, you’ll delve even deeper into the darker sides of Krakow’s history.

The time of departure has been postponed. There was a problem with the audio guide and the tour started with the Schindler Museum. The guide wanted to give us an hour's visit. We were able to negotiate an hour and a half (2 hours announced by getyourguide). We had to ask to visit the other 2 museums, the guide was not aware, but then took us there. The visit to Schindler's museum was very interesting, an audio guide would have been nice, but was not provided.

Awesome tourguide Polina, who has answered all of our questions and is an excellent driver! The tour was very interesting and impressive, beautiful to see the Jewish quarter. The Oscar Schindler museum was very interesting. Polina gave us restaurant recommendations and dropped us off where conveniently for us. Great tour, highly recommended

Very nice and interesting tour of Kaziemiritz with a tuk-tuk. Very nice guide. Did everything to please me. That part a 10! The Schindler factory was not quite what I expected. I had hoped to see some of the factory again. But it is now divided into narrow corridors surrounded by photographs, proclamations, writings, etc.
