No other city in Europe celebrates ‘Jewish Heritage’ like Krakow. The former Jewish Quarter, Kazimierz, is rich with Jewish history, witnessed by the no less than eight remaining synagogues including the world-famous Remu Synagogue, built in 1553 and still in use today. Although Krakow’s Jewish community is small, at any given time Jewish visitors the world over are creating life anew in this city. Shops, museums, and restaurants abound, all aimed at reclaiming and celebrating Krakow’s Jewish heritage. This work goes hand in hand with mourning the great loss of the original community. Plaszow concentration camp within Krakow itself and Auschwitz concentration camp just an hour away were at the center of the destruction of European Jewry. Most visitors to Krakow also visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum as well as the famous Schindler’s factory. One way to experience what Jewish life here means today is to attend a Shabbat service with the first full-time Rabbi working in Krakow since World War II.
We also offer tours in Warsaw and can design for you tailored programs that include excursions to smaller towns and cities all over Poland.
