Krakow Excursions & Tours - The Traces of Jewish Culture
Krakow Excursions & Tours: Discover Kazimierz, Poland's historical Jewish centre, on this tour of a district filled with history, culture and astounding architecture. This area is also the setting where ''Shindler's List'', Stephen Spielberg's notorious World War II drama, was filmed.
Kazimierz is named after the king who opened his arms to Jews worldwide and invited them to come and live in Poland in the 14th century. This made Poland a safe haven for Jews, who in medieval ages were persecuted all over the predominantly Christian Europe. In Kazimiez, Jewish culture flourished and its religion prospered greatly thanks to the policy of religious tolerance that embraced Polish inhabitants since the 15th century. This accepting, open-minded atmosphere brought together a wide variety of Jewish refugees, all pertaining to different cultural branches.
With this tour, retrace the cultural diversity which inhabited Kazimierz and made it blossom. You can still feel the cultural richness today in its ancient, mystical atmosphere. You can also appreciate the Jewish variety in the various synagogues that were constructed in that age, including the oldest of the preserved synagogues in Poland.
Certain streets and views might look familiar or ring a bell in the back of your mind; if you've watched the Oscar winning ''Shindler's List'', you'll realise you've seen these places before in black and white moving images, for the film was shot in this area. The end of the tour brings you to the monument that commemorates the victims of the former Nazi concentration camp in Plaszow.
Meeting/pick-up point: Bus park at 11 Powi?le Street opposite the Sheraton Hotel.
Duration: Approx. 4 hours.
Start/opening time: Wednesdays and Sundays departing at 9am.

Krakow Excursions & Tours - The Wooden architecture route
Krakow Excursions & Tours: We invite you to follow the route that will take you where the scent of ancient logs, inside a church or a cottage, will help you find the spirit and serenity of the past. ''Kazimierz the Great received a Poland made of wood but gave it back built of stone'' - as the saying goes. However, as it was the case in towns mostly, in most rural areas local carpenters continued to build of wood. This seemingly inferior material was cheaper, more available and enabled people to be self-reliant. As a result wooden architecture still prevailed in the countryside where buildings were erected in perfect harmony with the landscape. The unmatched number of preserved objects in Malopolska lead to the creation of The Wooden Architecture Route which stretches for about 1500 km comprising over 200 churches, belfries, granaries, cottages and manor houses. The trip takes you to the most attractive places which are within a relatively short distance from Krakow and also gives you a chance to see the countryside off the main tourist routes.
Meeting point: Bus park at 11 Powile Street, opposite the Sheraton Hotel.
Duration: Approx. 5 hours.
Languages: English.
