Best guide  

When Marek met us, he asked if we were Jewish. We then spent a large part of the day learning about and seeing Jewish Warsaw. We saw all of Warsaw, but learned most about what we wanted to. We were only in Warsaw for the day, and we saw all there was to see thanks to Marek. We were the only people on the tour so it was very personalized, and we truly got a history lesson from Miedevil Poland to Present Day Poland. I was traveling with my 2 kids i n their early 20's, who had grandparents who survived the war.... [read more]

 Tour plan

We offer 3 tour options:

3-hour walking tour

The most essential tour of Jewish sites in Warsaw. You start from Prozna 14 Street, which is the only remaining street of the Warsaw ghetto and Grzybowski Square. You walk around former Jewish district to visit the most important places: Nozyk Synagogue, the only Jewish house of prayer that survived the war, remains of the Ghetto wall – there are two characteristic fragments from which some of the bricks were removed and trasported to the Jewish museums in the USA, Australia and other countries, the Walicow Street with ruins of Jewish tenement house and Chłodna Street where the Jewish “Bridge of Sighs” existed. It is the area that was divided into two parts, so called “small” and “big” ghettos, connected by the wooden bridge. You will see the street of Polish Jew Ludwik Zamenhof – creator of esperanto international language, the Route Recalling the Martyrdom and the Struggle of the Jews – it is designated by blocks of black stone with the names of individuals fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Also, you will have a chance to see a building for Jewish orphans that was moved here in 1942 from the city’s outskirts. Janusz Korczak (Henryk Goldszmit) was the director of the orphanage and now in its yard there is a monument of him with children. The “Gesiowka” concentration camp was founded on the ruins of the Ghetto. Almost 5000 Jews whose origins were Greek, French and Hungarian were transported from here to Auschwitz.

Grzybowski Square in Warsaw  

From the Umschlagplatz mass transportations to Treblinka extermination camp took place – over 300 000 people were deported. Also here you will see the engraved verse from the Book of Job (16:18): ‘O earth, cover not thou my blood, And let my cry have noresting-place’. The Ghetto Heroes Monument (Pomnik Bohaterów Getta) located in front of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews (POLIN) was built from the rocks that were supposed to be used by Germans to build monuments commemorating Hilter’s victories. You will see the POLIN Museum from the outside and get to know the double meaning of the POLIN word. After the 3-hour tour we suggest visiting this postmodern structure in glass, copper and concrete that was designed by Finnish architects. We can book tickets for you. Also, there is a possibility to buy an audio-guide.

5-hour walking tour

During 5-hour walking tour you visit all the places listed in the 3-hour tour and move on to the see Jewish cemetery in Okopowa street

It is one of the few Jewish open cemeteries in Poland. You will see memorials of such figures as famous rabbi Szlomo Lipszyc, Jewish writter Icchak Lejb Perec, actress Ester Rachel Kaminska or the creator of esperanto language Ludwik Zamenhof

A great travel agency  

AB Poland worked with me to completely customize my three days in Poland and make the most of my time. They answered all of my questions, made great suggestions and built the perfect itinerary all at reasonable enough prices. Plus, my guides Jacek in Warsaw and Kinga in Krakow were knowledgeable and friendly hosts, making conversation easy. Have nothing bad to say at all. I would highly recommend AB Poland.
