Go on an audio guided tour of Kraków's Jewish district in the comfort and style of an electric car. Kraków's Old Town is the historical and central district of Kraków, and is one of the most famous old districts in Poland. The district features the centrally located Rynek Główny (Main Square), which is the largest medieval town square of any European city. There is a number of historic landmarks in its vicinity, such as the St. Mary's Basilica (Kościół Mariacki), the Church of St. Wojciech (St. Adalbert's), and the Church of St. Barbara, as well as other national treasures. At the center of the plaza and surrounded by kamienice (row houses) and noble residences, stands the Renaissance cloth hall Sukiennice. Kazimierz is the district south of the Old Town and was the center of Jewish life in Kraków for over 500 years before being systematically destroyed during World War II. It was rediscovered in the 1990s thanks to the fall of the regime and worldwide exposure gained from the lens of Steven Spielberg. This has caused Kazimierz to rebound, and it is today Kraków’s most exciting district. It is a bustling, bohemian neighborhood packed with historical sites, atmospheric cafes, and art galleries. As a result, the district has become a major tourist draw and pilgrimage site for Jews, which has led to the return of contemporary Jewish culture in the area.

Amazing tour by Eugene! However, I booked through Get your guide to “secure our spaces”. This is not necessary and you can just turn up at the square and join the tour for free. I wonder how much of the booking fee actually goes to the guides? All the guide asks is for you to pay what you think they deserve! Amazing all round lasted and 2.5 hours.

Booking was easy. The details of the meeting point were clear. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and on time. I’ve used this service twice now and have had no issues. Enjoy!

Very great tour with an energetic and knowledgeable guide. He went out of his way to give us a tremendous amount of insight about Krakow and its history. Highly recommend!
