Krakow Tours

Kraków packs a lot into a compact space. Two days will give you a decent shot at seeing most major sights, but even then you’ll have to keep moving and keep focused. Thankfully, there are plenty of cafes along the way to grab an energising cup of coffee or piece of cake. Jewish history in Poland goes back more than a thousand years, when the country was the epicenter of European Jewish life. Always Poland’s cultural capital, Krakow in particular holds a special place in Jewish lore, with many a Yiddish poem written about the old Kazimierz neighborhood and its vibrant Jewish culture. The horrors of the Holocaust ravaged Poland’s Jewish community to near-extinction, but lately there have been signs of a revival. Poles – Jews and Gentiles alike – are rediscovering their shared history as Jewish life and culture is slowly returning to Krakow.
