City tours in Krakow and Kazimierz - tour guide


Kazimierz is a unique place. This city was established in 1335 by Polish King Casimir the Great and named after him. According to tradition, here he had started to build one of the oldest universities in Europe - Studium Generale, later known as Jagiellonian University. Starting from 14th century this city was developing on the influence of two cultures – Christian and Jewish.


From 13th century Krakow is connected with Jewish culture. Here Jews could have normal lives. When the whole world turned away from Jews, only Poland accepted them. But in 1495 they were forced to leave Krakow and to resettle to Kazimierz. Here they were developing their culture and traditions, built synagogues and schools. This was the other world.


Kazimierz - city of two cultures

Krakow Tours

Kazimierz - city of two cultures. In this place for centuries exist Christian and Jewish cultures. These are two different worlds - different traditions, cultures, religion, languages and meals. Combination of these  made this place a unique one. They coexisted together – in good and bad times. Here is situated one of the oldest churches and the oldest synagogue in Krakow. And there are more synagogues than churches.

We will see all main attractions of Kazimierz – both Christian and Jewish.

Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory, the Eagle Pharmacy and Pomorska Street are branches of the Historical Museum of Krakow. All of them are connected with the history of World War II in Krakow.


Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum is known all over the world. In the  Factory's former administrative building is presented exhibition  - Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945. It is about lives of Poles and Jews during WWII, their hopes and fears, personal dramas and terror that ruled in Krakow.


Eagle Pharmacy Museum is located on the territory of former Jewish Ghetto in Krakow. Exhibition is based on the memoirs of Tadeusz Pankiewisz - the only Polish pharmacist who was allowed to live in ghetto. From windows he saw what happened there, a tragedy of people. Here was a shelter for Jews where they could speak freely. Pankiewicz and his staff risked their lives to help Jews in ghetto.


Pomorska Street 2 – former headquarter of Gestapo in Krakow. This organization was the most cruel to people and the cells of Gestapo prison, where people were tortured and murdered, are really terrifying.
