Itinerary

The tour begins in the main market square of Krakow, the largest medieval square in Europe.  Follow your guide along the Planty Gardens to Poland's oldest school, the Jagiellonian University founded in 1364.  Continue to the Bishop's Palace to glimpse Pope John Paul II's famous window and pass the former residence of Oskar Schindler.  Stop to admire the Wawel Castle, the stately home of Polish royalty for centuries and today one of the country’s premier art and history museums.  Travel along the Vistula River before entering the Krakow Ghetto where you will see remains of the wall of Oskar Schindler's factory and the famous Pharmacy under the Eagle.  Next you'll travel back in time to Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter.  Here you’ll see the oldest synagogue in Poland before stopping to relax at an authentic Polish restaurant for lunch.

The meal takes place inside an old Jewish general store, carpenter's shop and tailor shop.  Settle in alongside the 19th-century equipment, including sewing machines and carpentry tools, for a unique dining experience.  The more guests on the tour, the larger variety of foods you will get to try.  For just one person on a tour, you will get to try the Golabki; for two people, Golabki and Perogies; three or more will get to try all three dishes. 

Sample Menu

  • Golabki:  stuffed cabbage rolls, with rice and minced port with mushroom or tomato sauce poured on top
  • Perogies:  stuffed dumplings with either cheese and potato, cabbage and mushroom (the vegetarian option) and/or minced pork filling
  • Bigos:  Traditional cabbage stew with sausage, mushroom, cabbage, and a hint of plum
  • All tables are provided with a carafe of water and an appetizer of Jewish Maca bread with a choice of three different toppings:  chili, garlic sauce, and garlic oil
  • Any additional beverages or food will be at your own expense

After lunch, journey back toward your original departure point, where your tour will conclude.
