2-Hour Guided Tour in Kraków-Płaszów Concentration Camp
Having arrived at the former camp, we'll remember the tragic events which took place here from 1943 onwards, when Płaszów began to receive thousands of Jews from the Krakow ghetto. You will get to learn about the remarkable history of Krakow city during the holocaust.
The camp and life in it are shown in the Schindler's List movie (1993) about the life of Oskar Schindler. The area which held the camp now consists of sparsely wooded hills and fields, with one large memorial to all the victims, erected in 1964 and few smaller. As the Plaszow area is now a nature preserve, so the director Steven Spielberg built a camp replica in the Liban Quarry, some hundred meters away.
We will visit all these points during our tour and you will enjoy this tour and learn a lot from it.

Pass By: The Ghetto Heroes Square, Plac Bohaterow Getta, Krakow Poland
We will walk by the Ghetto Heroes Square which is just across the river in Podgorze suburb. Though after the war the name of Plac Zgody was changed to Plac Bohaterów Getta (Ghetto Heroes Square) and a small monument was erected, the space’s historical significance never felt more pertinent than its post-war use as a public toilet or parking lot. Finally, after decades of neglect, Plac Bohaterów Getta was renovated in 2005, sparking significant controversy over the design. Laid out with 70 large well-spaced metal chairs meant to symbolise departure, as well as subsequent absence, the entire square has essentially been turned into an odd, but iconic memorial to the victims of the Kraków Ghetto.
Stop At: Plaszow Concentration Camp, Jerozolimska, Krakow Poland
Our guided visit will start and your guide will be more than happy to show you around and give all the information you need to know.
While thousands of tourists use Krakow as the starting point for visiting Auschwitz, few are aware that Krakow actually has a former concentration camp in its own backyard. On the other side of the river, in the depths of Podgórze, the vast area is almost undeveloped, despite the fact that it is located in one of the most desirable commercial and residential districts of the city - on the main communication artery (Wielicka Street), opposite a large shopping center (Bonarka) and not far from main tourist attraction (Krakus Mound). It is the former seat of the "Konzentrationslager Plaszow bei Krakau'' - the German Nazi concentration camp in Płaszów, today a wild, uneven space of land, which until recently did not indicate its own existence, let alone its wartime history.
Duration: 2 hours
Pass By: Ghetto Wall Fragment, Limanowskiego 62 In the Schools Playground, Krakow Poland
After our tour, we will pass by one of the most amazing Historical landmark in Kraków: The Fragment of Ghetto Wall.
Kraków’s most prominent evidence of its ghetto is this 12-metre stretch of the original ghetto wall. In 1983, a commemorative plaque was raised, which reads in Hebrew and Polish: “Here they lived, suffered and died at the hands of the German torturers. From here they began their final journey to the death camps.”
