Krakow: Jewish Traces Private Electric Car Tour

9. Krakow: Jewish Traces Private Electric Car Tour

Go on an audio guided tour of Kraków's Jewish district in the comfort and style of an electric car. Kraków's Old Town is the historical and central district of Kraków, and is one of the most famous old districts in Poland. The district features the centrally located Rynek Główny (Main Square), which is the largest medieval town square of any European city. There is a number of historic landmarks in its vicinity, such as the St. Mary's Basilica (Kościół Mariacki), the Church of St. Wojciech (St. Adalbert's), and the Church of St. Barbara, as well as other national treasures. At the center of the plaza and surrounded by kamienice (row houses) and noble residences, stands the Renaissance cloth hall Sukiennice. Kazimierz is the district south of the Old Town and was the center of Jewish life in Kraków for over 500 years before being systematically destroyed during World War II. It was rediscovered in the 1990s thanks to the fall of the regime and worldwide exposure gained from the lens of Steven Spielberg. This has caused Kazimierz to rebound, and it is today Kraków’s most exciting district. It is a bustling, bohemian neighborhood packed with historical sites, atmospheric cafes, and art galleries. As a result, the district has become a major tourist draw and pilgrimage site for Jews, which has led to the return of contemporary Jewish culture in the area.

Fantastic trip. The trip required lots of walking to get to each building but the stories were so interesting. Well worth the money, would even be happy to pay more for it. The stories spoke about who lived in the buildings years and centuries ago, how they lived, crazy ways they dealt with things. Very interesting 1hr 30 mins. Guide Navia also spoke great english.

The tour was great, our guide Sabina was fantastic, was passionate about the city and was so knowledgable! There was just our group on the tour which was nice. As well as the tour itself being great, being on the scooters meant you can cover so much more ground and see more! Not to mention they are great fun and we all now want one!!!! Would recommend to anybody!

Our Guide Anya was amazing! So knowledgeable and entertaining, we could have easily walked around the city all night. I would recommend this to anyone, it’s definitely been one of the highlights of our trip. (Also, the recommendation for the Ukrainian cherry liqueur and the rose donuts…. Delicious!)

Fantastic. Creepy is the correct title. This isn't a ghost walk, it is a walk with some creepy tales at each stop. Perfect for an evening walk around Krakow. Really enjoyed it and the guide was fabulous, engaging and knowledgeable.

Easy to find, good length of tour, guide was great.
