From a unique Yiddish theatre and Nobel prize winners to uprisings and the Holocaust: discover the incredible cultural heritage and tragic history of Jewish Warsaw on this free walking tour.

Jewish Warsaw Free Walking Tour Itinerary

After meeting your tour guide in front of All Saints Church in the heart of the Polish capital, you'll begin your free walking tour through Jewish Warsaw. The church is located in what was the former Warsaw Ghetto, which was the largest Jewish ghetto in Nazi Germany-occupied Europe between November 1940 to May 1943. Even before the war, the city was home to a huge and flourishing Jewish community, with thriving artists, actors and writers making this a vibrantly cultural area.

From All Saints Church you'll follow a route around the former ghetto, discovering important sites for the past and present Jewish communities of Warsaw while your English-speaking guide explains the history and significance of each place.

You'll see the contemporary building which houses the Museum of the History of Polish Jews; the memorial located at the former "Umschlagplatz" where ghettoised Jews were gathered together before being transported to death camps in World War II; and the remains of Pawiak Prison.

Hear all about the most famous names that called the city home: from Nobel Prize Winner Isaac Bashevis Singer to Irena Sendler, who saved thousands of Jews during World War II, and contemplate the Ghetto Heroes Monument, a memorial commemorating the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943.

Your free walking tour through the highs and lows of Jewish Warsaw will come to an end after approximately two and a half hours.
