Description

Shalom at the Jewish Kazimierz! The historic district of Krakow, which for centuries was seen as the Jewish capital city of the former Polish – Lithuanian Commonwealth. Kazimierz was home to world famous Rabbis eg the most famous one – Moses ben Israel Isserles known as Remu. You can find here the Old Synagogue – one of the oldest preserved synagogues in Central Europe – and the Remu cemetery, one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Poland. Unique architecture along with charming restaurants and historical significance all add to extraordinary atmosphere of Kazimierz. The famous Szeroka Street hosts, the biggest Jewish Festival in Europe.

The Jewish Kazimierz tour is also an important history lesson of the Second World War, pictured in Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List.” The old Jewish ghetto in the Podgorze district is associated with this turbulent period.
