Full description
Warsaw today is a capital that tries to recall the missing past and brings its charm to the future of hectic metropolitan eastern European life. The original stones and bricks that survived the horrors of the past are silent but have many stories to tell. Discover the melancholy beauty of the past: the remains of the ghetto walls, the orphanage of Janusz Korczak, the Warsaw Synagogue, the Jewish Theater, the Nordwache building, and the only street that remained after the Warsaw Ghetto, Chłodna street. The Jewish cemetery of Warsaw in Okopowa commemorates polish Jews who have lived there for the last 200 years. The Monument to the Heroes of the Ghetto, the Umschlagplatz Monument, the bunker in Miła 18, and the Great Synagogue shows the Jewish resilience to keep living there against all odds.  The Jewish heritage of Warsaw is not only found in the western bank. Should you like to explore more there is the opportunity to go to Praga district and see the setting for Roman Polanski's The Pianist, the oldest market in Warsaw, and the great frescos pf the former Synagogue that are being renovated now.

An excellent way to spend half a day

I took half a day at the end of a work trip for a four-hour Jewish-themed tour of Warsaw. My guide, Ania, was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible on how we structured the morning. Highly recommended.
