Vad du kommer att göra

During this walk I take tourists to the district of Kazimierz - currently becoming the artistic district of Cracow filled with designer café’s, bars, art and craft galleries. This trendy location is surrounded by buildings that witnessed shocking Holocaust history. It is also the place where before World War II, Jewish culture flourished for centuries and it was a film set for Steven Spielbergs Oscar winner. Then, we continue to the district of Podgórze to the surviving remnants of the second World War Ghetto. I tell stories and legends familiarise my customers with local customs and traditions. Through the tours I am keeping my tourist involved in the discussion about features of local architecture, exchange opinions on European history, though I'm not overloading anyone with too much historical data in order to keep pleasant holiday feeling.

I’ve been working with several tour companies from Cracow as English or Russian speaking tour guide for long time. I keep on delivering various strolls and bike tours around Old Town of Cracow or Jewish district and former Jewish Ghetto area. I have a very good set of contacts in the local cafeterias in order to provide customers with some quality break time during the tour. What’s very important is my background - I was born and raised in Cracow; therefore, my range of knowledge about this town is vast. I can show you the city from a perspective of a local person, who not only is well aware of the local history, folclore and legends, but also is up to date with ongoing events in the city.

Var ni kommer att vara

We will meet nearby St. Adelbert Church on Main Market Square. I will brief you there on the history of Cracow. We will go near St. Mary's Basilica to the Lesser Market and to Planty Park, where is the map. There I explain how cities of Cracow and Kazimierz were arranged in medieval times, from there we will go through Starowiślna Street to Kazimierz. There we will see Szeroka St. and various synagogues, later we will go to the Ghetto area.

Wladislaw had valuable input in terms of history in Krakow. However, I felt like time was not managed well. We spend a long time at the beginning in places at the old town that had little to do with Krakow jewish history. In the end it was obviously rushed after I mentioned I needed to leave at 4pm (1h after the tour was originally said to finish). In addition the guide voiced private opinions that came close to conspiracy theories, which distracted from the very serious topic and let me in doubt of his overall knowledge and historic accuracy Most places can be visited independently.

Un guide véritablement excellent, sympathique, féru de son sujet, qui ne compte pas son temps. Je recommande chaudement Wladyslaw car sans lui on passe à côté de beaucoup de choses pendant cette visite.

Our tour with Wladyslaw was fascinating from start to finish. He has a unique way of storytelling that makes learning about Krakow and the neighborhood of Kazimierz very engaging. I don’t know how else we would have learned some of the urban legends behind some of the sights we saw. Wladyslaw was very knowledgeable, taking us around little corners and pointing out little details that we otherwise probably would have walked right by! The Jewish history and culture we learned about was fascinating and touching, and we were very glad to have Wladyslaw’s perspectives to help us understand such a complicated time in history.

We were lucky enough to have a private tour with Wladyslaw. Together, we walked around Krakow Old Town, Kazimierz, and the former Jewish Ghetto for nearly 4 hours. He was so generous with his time and extremely knowledgable about Polish and Jewish customs and culture. I was especially impressed by his ability to convey very difficult and complicated topics in an objective (but not overly-simplified) way. He has a very nuanced way of thinking, which made the tour so much more interesting than a presentation of facts. I'm so glad we went on this tour -- it's a wonderful way to add depth and meaning to Krakow's most prominent neighborhood. It should be a must for anyone visiting!

Wladyslaw is a very knowledgable and enthusiastic guide with an excellent sense of humour and wonderful storytelling abilities. During my time with him, I learnt a lot about the history of the Jewish district in Krakow, and also about Jewish culture and traditions. He took the time to understand my interests and to personalise the tour accordingly, and to ask me questions about what we had discussed. This tour was a very memorable and enlightening experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Krakow!

Wladyslaw was a great guide who had a lot of background- and urban legend-knowledge we would not have been able to find in books. He was really passionate for all the details and totally open to all of our questions. Absolutely recommend him.
