This tour has two stages. In the first one, we will drive a comfortable ecological golf cart in search of traces of Jewish culture through the Krakow districts of Kaimierz and Podgórze. Kazimierz is one of the oldest districts of the royal city, once an independent settlement, located behind the no longer existing branch of the Vistula River. First of all, it is a place known for the coexistence and interpenetration of two cultures over the centuries - Christian and Jewish. There was a Jewish ghetto in Podgórze during the war, traces of which can be found to this day. In the second part, we will visit one of the most popular museums in the city with a guide. Although it is associated with the name of the German entrepreneur Oskar Shindler, who saved many Jews by employing them in his factory, the main topic of visiting the museum is the fate of Krakow and its inhabitants during the Nazi occupation. We will see this amazing interactive exhibition that really leaves no one indifferent.
