Description

During this tour you’ll learn about the history of Warsaw’s Jewish community and how it struggled during the World War II Nazi occupation.

You’ll visit the former Jewish ghetto and see the remains of the ghetto wall. Built in 1940, this red-brick construction effectively isolated more than 400,000 Jews from the rest of the city.

You’ll see photos of and hear stories about those times before passing Grzybowski Square (Plac Grzybowski), which was once part of the ghetto, on your way to the Nożyk Synagogue. You’ll have the chance to look around this still-operational synagogue, the only one in Warsaw to have survived World War II.

Next, you’ll venture deeper into the former “large” ghetto of Muranów, a district built on the rubble of the ghetto and adorned with modern buildings and street art. Take a walk around the Jewish Cemetery and see some of its thousands of graves.

Afterwards, bow down at the impressive Monument to the Ghetto Heroes.

If you wish, ask your guide to show you some locations from Roman Polanski’s Oscar-winning movie, The Pianist, set in Holocaust-era Warsaw.

Please note: the Nożyk Synagogue and the Jewish Cemetery are close on Saturdays.

Informative and Enjoyable
This tour was an excellent introduction to Jewish life in Warsaw before, during and after the Nazi occupation.The tour guide provided a wealth of information and was able to answer all of our questions about the history of Jewish life in the Ghetto. We visited many of the sites that we would have not known about if not for this tour. I would highly recommend this.

An impressive private Tour: Warsaw's Jewish Heritage by Retro Fiat
Our tour guide Marcin was helpful, very knowledgeable and friendly. He really knows a lot of information about the Jewish history and answered all our questions. Marcin picked us up at the hotel and he was a guide who did not look at his watch - he took time for everything. We found the Jewish cemetry the most impressive. We absolutely can recommend this tour!

Unique and charming tour of Warsaw's past
Our tour with Konrad was incredible. While the tour is normally self driven, I had no idea how to drive stick, yet Konrad offered to teach me in the parking lot. This didnt pan out all that well, so Konrad just drove the fiat, which in all honesty was for the best in the pouring rain, in a country and city I did not know. Konrad was very funny and informative about communism and its affects on Warsaw, so if your into that, and driving vintage cars, this is the perfect tour for you!
