Second World War was a very unforgiving period of time for Europe and the whole world, without a doubt.
During that time, majority of nations suffered smaller or greater casualities.
Poland is one of the countries, that suffered the most and Kraków played an improtant 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.
As this place's history is very long, interesting and fascinating, we decided to create separate tour in order to unreveal all of it's secrets.

During this tour, we will take you on a journey through the most representative places of Podgórze district and its misteries.
You will get to know Kraków's ghetto history and some famous people connected to it, you will learn how people's lifes looked like behind the walls and what institutions operated there.
If you are interested in Second World War history, we invite you to this tour!
