Description

Did you know that Warsaw was the biggest Jewish city in Europe? They made up 30% of the city’s population. Jews lived here since the settlement of the city in the medieval period. For more than 600 years they co-created the city and its rich culture. The creator of Esperanto language lived here, Noble Prize lived here as well. We’ll show you the fascinating yet dramatic story of the Jews in Warsaw.

Warsaw is relatively flat, making cycling a safe and hassle-free way of getting around. If you can ride a bike, you can do this tour and not get tired! We’ll cover approximately 12 kilometres in total.

Great way to see spots
We booked the tour at the last minute on a holiday weekend and started the tour at 5:30 which was a nice time since there were not many people out. Riding the bikes also seemed a more peaceful way to visit the sites and learn the sad history of places. Better tan getting in and out of a van. Our guide was very knowledgable of the Jewish history
Thoroughly educational
Gawel took us on a 3 hour bike tour to all the places of erased Jewish history. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a great picture of what Warsaw was before Germans destroyed it.
