During this tour, we will take you on a journey through the most representative places of Podgórze district and its mysteries.
You will get to know Kraków's ghetto history and some famous people connected to it, you will learn how people's lives looked like behind the walls and what institutions operated there.

Second World War was a very unforgiving period of time for Europe and the whole world, without a doubt.
Poland is one of the countries that suffered the most and Kraków played an impoRtant role in Nazi's plans to dominate Europe.
Our city was meant to be a capital city of General Government and one of the biggest ghettos for the Jewish nation, was located in this territory.
Nazis have established the ghetto in Podgórze district – today a district, back day, for a long time, separate city, with it's own law, trade, economy, that could easily compete with Kraków.

We decided to create AN EXCLUSIVE and separate tour in order to unreveal all of it's secrets.

If you are interested in Second World War history and hike through hills and parks, we invite you to this tour!

Podgórze district - Guetto - trekking - panoramical views - Squirrels - villas - St. Joseph's Church -
