Krakow City Tour - daily morning

 

Our tour of the Old Town, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, begins with a brief visit to the old Jewish district of Kazimierz, inextricably linked with the history of the Jews of Kraków. Kazimierz was buzzing from the late 15th century to the tragic years of the Holocaust. After 1989 there was a wave of return migration to Kazimierz, and in 1993 Steven Spielberg shot his "Schindler's List" there, thereby making Krakow and Kazimierz an even more recognisable landmark in Europe.
Then we will go to the Wawel Hill, over which tower the Royal Palace with its impressive arcaded Renaissance courtyard and the famous Gothic cathedral - the place of coronation and the necropolis of Polish kings. After visiting the Cathedral we will go to the oldest university college - the Collegium Maius, with a beautiful Gothic courtyard, to finish the tour in the heart of Kraków - the Main Market Square - the largest medieval square in Europe with St. Mary's Church - a soaring, Gothic church inside which you can admire the impressive altar by Wit Stwosz (Veit Stoss). On Sundays, instead of visiting the Cathedral and St. Mary's Church - a visit to another museum or church.

Jewish Culture Route - on Wednesday and Sunday  

 

For many centuries Jews played their part in creating the history and culture of the city of Kroke, as Kraków is known in Yiddish. Before World War II they made up as much as 25% of the city's population. A tour around Kazimierz - the former Jewish district, preserved in excellent condition until today - will introduce you to the world of their rich culture, customs and history. It was there that the renowned philosopher Mojżesz Isserles (called Remuh) taught, Helena Rubinstein was born, who is considered to have been one of the richest women in the world, and the esteemed director, actor and screenwriter Roman Polanski spent his childhood. The old Jewish district, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, became an even more recognisable landmark in Europe following the release of the famous "Schindler's List".

You will be introduced to the history of the extermination of the Jews of Kraków, which is the background for the events described in the Spielberg's film, as you will be wandering the streets of the former ghetto. That is the place where Jews were locked up during World War II, and they were sent to death camps from there. A display in the Schindler's Factory Museum will complement the information, which is the story of Kraków and the fate of the Polish and Jewish population during World War II, but also about the Germans - occupiers who arrived here on 6th September, 1939 and brutally stopped a centuries-old history of Polish-Jewish Kraków. The story of World War II mingles with everyday life there, and private life with the tragedy that affected the whole world. 

   Day:  Wednesday and Saturday
   Pick up time and place: will be confirmed 
   Duration: 4 hrs
   Price: PLN 170,- / per person
  
   The price includes:  tour with a licensed guide, tickets to the Synagogue, the Remuh Cemetery,
   and Schindler's Factory, transportation. The price doesn’t include food or beverages.

PLEASE NOTE: Minimum 2 people is required.

 
Visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum - daily 

The tour of the Museum, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, comprises both parts of the former concentration camp - Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau - and a documentary film presenting the first moments after the camp was liberated.

The Auschwitz camp has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust. It was established by the Nazis in 1940 in the suburbs of the city of Auschwitz, which was integrated into the Third Reich. The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the growing number of mass arrests of Poles and overcrowding of the existing prisons. Initially, it was supposed to be another concentration camp created by the Nazis from the beginning of the 1930s. That was the function of Auschwitz for the entire period of its existence, even when, from 1942, it became one of the centres for"Endlösung der Judenfrage" ("the final solution of the Jewish issue") at the same time - the Nazi plan to murder the Jews living in the territories occupied by the Third Reich.The Auschwitz camp, until the end of its existence, was first and foremost a place of extermination. Even if from 1943 mortality was reduced in other camps to conserve manpower, in Auschwitz, to which continually new shipments were coming - mostly of Jews - to supply the camp labour, human life never meant too much.Due to the role that Auschwitz played in the implementation of the Nazi extermination plans, it has become a world-famous symbol of the Nazi genocide, in particular the destruction of the Jews. 

Today, on the area of approx. 200 hectares you can see preserved ruins of the gas chambers and places filled with human ashes, primitive barracks for prisoners and miles of the camp fence and roads.
