Poland used to be one of the most tolerant countries in Europe during the Middle Ages and had one of the largest and most flourishing Jewish communities in the world. The district of Kazimierz preserves the heart of the Polish Jewish culture where two different religions, also Christian ones, coexisted peacefully for more than half a millennium. The terrors of World War II hit the district and its residents experienced one of the most tragic events in history and so moving that it has been an inspiration to many films since then, including Schindler's List. Visit places where the best people of the Jewish community were born, discover the unique atmosphere of the cultural center of Krakow, see amazing examples of Jewish architecture and, finally, visit places of great tragedy.
There is much to see and hear about the Jewish quarter in Krakow, both today and in the past.
This activity includes:
- Holocaust Memorial
- Jewish Cemetery
- Schindler’s List filming spots
- Kazimierz Graffiti
- Bridge of Love
- Heroes of Ghetto Square
