DescriptionSpend a half-day learning about the dark history of Poland with this 3.5-hour 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, Heroes of the Ghetto Square, Apteka Pod Orlem (Pharmacy Under the Eagle), 6 synagogues, 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 artefacts, and dynamic media installations, you’ll delve even deeper into the darker sides of Krakow’s history.
