Lying at the heart of Jewish Krakow and today the gritty, edgy focus of the city’s subversive underground scene, Plac Nowy (literally, New Square) in Kazimierz is re-emerging from its Communist-era slump. It is a rather bleak square surrounded by once-handsome townhouses and was incorporated into the Jewish quarter in the late 17th century as its main market place; the landmark Okrąglak (Rotunda) was built around 1900 in the center of the square and it served as a kosher slaughterhouse right up until to the Nazi occupation of Krakow in 1939.

Today, Plac Nowy is jumping with life once more; the daily food market morphs into a sprawling flea market at the weekends, when a young crowd pours in to snap up antiques, pre-loved clothes, Soviet memorabilia and Jewish ephemera. Butchers still operate in the Rotunda and they run a series of takeaway food hatches through which the Cracovian street food of choice, zapiekanki (baguette-shaped pizzas with a choice of toppings) are sold until the wee hours. Around the square is a burgeoning club-and-bar scene, which also stays open and buzzing until late. The Galicia Jewish Museum and several historic synagogues are close by and can be visited on sign posted walking tours of the district.

Jewish Quarter, Oskar Schindler's sites and Kraków under Nazi occupation

Jewish Quarter, Oskar Schindler's sites and Kraków under Nazi occupation

star-5
In the beginning we go to see the very well preserved medieval Jewish quarter in Kazimierz, with its most interesting, ancient streets: Meisselsa, Józefa and Szeroka. Having this background we go over the Wisła (Vistula) River to find out the history of the Closed Jewish District (ghetto) in Podgórze. We also see the remaining parts of the ghetto wall in a very striking "matsevah-like" shape. Then we visit the historical museum in the former Schindler's Factory in Zabłocie. The new (opened in 2010), interactive exhibition shows how Kraków looked like days before WWII started and how WWII affected its people. Finally we visit the area of the concentration and labour camp in Płaszów, the monument and a villa where infamous commandant SS-Hauptsturmführer Amon Goeth (Ralph Fiennes in the movie) used to live.

Krakow Jewish Traces Private Tour

Krakow Jewish Traces Private Tour

star-5
Before the war, there were 65 thousand Jews living side by side among the inhabitants of Krakow as their neighbours and fellow citizens. Nowadays, the community numbers among its members less than 500 people. But the memory, Jewish traditions, and the unique, historic quarter of Kazimierz remained, surviving the tragic times of war and homicide. Today, the district is alive with multicultural, artistic atmosphere, where each and every alley hides an interesting shop, a café, or one of the seven remaining synagogues, each completely different and special in its character. Among them, you will find, for example, the modest Remuh synagogue – one that is still open and functioning, as well as the ornate, colourful Tempel synagogue, with its characteristic stained-glass windows, where many concerts and cultural events are held. We would like to invite you on this fascinating walk along the paths of Jewish history and traditions, but with the vibe of contemporary atmosphere of Kazimierz.

Private guided walking tour of Kazimierz, the former Jewish Quarter

Private guided walking tour of Kazimierz, the former Jewish Quarter

The former Jewish quarter in Kazimierz (district of Kraków) is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. Kazimierz (name after Kazimierz the Great, the last Piast and one of the greatest rulers in Polish history) used to be an independent city and from 15th century, a flourishing centre of Jewish religion and culture. The policy of religious tolerance allowed diverse groups of Jewish refugees from all over Europe to come and settle in Poland. Kazimierz became a safe paradise, dominated with the Jews. Today, however very few Jews live in Kazimierz, the district plays role of the artistic centre of Krakow and lots of bars, cafes and Jewish style restaurants help to feel its atmosphere. Your guide will also help you to recognize some of the sights that appeared in the Oscars winning "Schindler's list" movie which was shot in this area.
