Our tour follows the footsteps of Oskar Schindler, one of the Righteous Among the Nations of the World, who during WWII saved lifes of 1100 Polish Jews from Krakow. Schindler is most known thanks to the 1993 Steven Spielberg's movie "Schindler's List". The tour is a mixture of both history and film. Our guide will meet you and greet you at noon in our Tourist Information office at Plac Szczepanski no.8, 2 minutes of walk from the Main Market Square of Krakow. From there we will walk through the Planty Gardens to see the former home of Oskar Schindler at Straszewskiego St. Then we will continue to Poselska Street depicted in one of the tragic scenes in the movie. Leaving the Old Town of Krakow we will walk to the former Jewish Quarter in Kazimierz, where the history mixes with the film. We will see the old Jewish ghetto in Szeroka St. - depicted in the movie as the WII Ghetto. We will also see a couple of streets which were portrayed in various scenes: Ciemna St., Jakuba St., Jozefa St., Skawinska St. and Krakowska St. In Kazimierz we will take a short refreshment break to rest. After the stop in Kazimierz we will walk to the other side of the Vistula River to the district of Podgorze. Via Piłsudskiego Bridge we will walk to the historical WWII Ghetto in Krakow-Podgorze, established in March 1941. We will see the Ghetto Heroes Square and couple of streets depicted in the film: Wegierska St., Lwowska St. and most important - the remaining part of the original WWII Ghetto wall. After that we will walk to the Oscar Schindler's Enamel Dish Factory, depicted in the movie. Today it is one of the branches of the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow. There you can take a short break and follow us inside of this very popular and interesting museum where the next tour starts at 4 pm.
