Attraction details
Owner description: We suggest you to start this tour at Kazimierz – the former Jewish district – to understand the Jews, their religion, customs and culture and their role in Europe. A visit to Kazimierz presents a unique opportunity to see how the Jewish community was organized and how it coexisted with Catholics for more than 600 years. Our guides will tell you not only about Jews who lived in Krakow, but also about their history in general, which will allow you to understand the tragedy of Holocaust. We will also show you the places that create the special atmosphere of Kazimierz now, and try to explain why Poland without the Jewish minority is a different country. Afterwards, you will visit Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former Nazi concentration camp. Auschwitz concentration camp is situated about 70 km from Krakow – our journey will take us about 1h 15 min. The tour begins with a 17-minutes documentary about the history and the liberation of the camp. Then an expert guide shows you the gas chamber, the crematorium and the exhibition in some of the surviving prison blocks. We continue to Birkenau to see this largest of all Nazi extermination camps. Here we see the entrance gate known as the gate of Death and the wooden barracks.

The factory was very interesting but I would have liked to see more about schindler himself and more facts about the jews that he saved, they seemed to have overlooked that and concentrated more on the ghettos and horrors of the war. We went on a Monday and I was free to go in. They have a small café there and toilets. Well worth a visit.

This tour is worth taking so you can see what one person did to try to save the Jews. They display the pots and pans that were manufactured. This manufacturing was not needed but Schindler did this to save the Jews from concentration camp. Unfortunately, this factory was ultimately dismantled and the Jews were shipped off to concentration camp.

We went on the Schindler's list tour and we were so impressed with the guide Janina that we decided to do the old town tour with her as well an hour later. Both tours were informative and I would highly reccomend them to anyone. The guide really brought it to life.
