Experience the former Jewish district of Kazimierz with our Schindler’s List half-day walking tour. See historic synagogues, remnants of a real World War II ghetto, and discover why Spielberg chose Kazimierz as the set for his Academy Award-winning movie.

Highlights

  • See Kazimierz, the former Jewish district with a dark history
  • Step inside the district used as the set for Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List
  • Explore the remnants of the World War II ghetto in Podgórze

Description

Kazimierz was once a Jewish district, and before World War II the Jewish culture flourished. But the area, and the neighbouring district of Podgórze, became the scene of Nazi devastation, with most of the remaining Jewish population fleeing following the war. However, since the late 1980s the area’s Jewish heritage has come back to life, the progress aided by the success of the Spielberg film, Schindler's List. Now, you can experience the history of this interesting district and see exactly why Spielberg chose it as the set for his Academy Award-winning movie. Wander through Kazimierz, then across the bridge to Podgórze to see Schindler’s factory and surviving remnants of the WWII ghetto. Along the way, you’ll see attractions such as the New Cemetery, a place where Krakow’s distinguished Jews were buried in the 19th and 20th centuries. You’ll also visit the Old Synagogue, the oldest remaining example of Jewish architecture in Poland. Built in the early 1500s, the synagogue is now the site of many exhibitions devoted to Polish Judaism. Another highlight is Isaac’s Synagogue. While the renovation of this historic building is still in progress, it is quite possible the most interesting and beautiful Jewish monument in Krakow.
