What To Expect
Start your private tour being picked up from your central hotel in Warsaw.
Meet your knowledgeable and helpful driver-guide and board your comfortable Fiat 125p, an iconic car of the 1980s. Your tour includes a souvenir photo of you with your car as well as onboard snacks to sustain you during your explorations.
During your tour, learn about the history of Warsaw's Jews and how they struggled during WWII's Nazi occupation. If you wish, feel free to ask your guide to tailor your route to include any particular points of interest.
Explore the former Jewish Ghetto area and see the remnants of the Ghetto Wall, the red-brick edifice built in 1940 that imprisoned more than 400,000 Jews. View photos and hear stories about this terrible period and then pass by Grzybowski Square (Plac Grzybowski), once a part of the ghetto, on your way to the Nozyk Synagogue. Head inside to look around this still-operational synagogue, the only one in Warsaw to survive WWII.
Continue deeper into the former "Large Ghetto" of Muranow, built on the rubble of the ghetto and now adorned with street art and modern buildings. Park here and take a walk around the Jewish Cemetery to see some of its thousands of graves.
Next, pay your respects at the imposing Ghetto Heroes Monument and, if you wish, visit the nearby Museum of the History of Polish Jews (own expense). Opened in 2013, this acclaimed modernist space documents 1,000 years of Polish Jewry through artifact and imagery. Inspect the exhibits and follow the personal life stories told here as you explore.
You may ask your guide to show you some locations used in Roman Polanski's Oscar-winning movie The Pianist, set in Holocaust-era Warsaw. See some of the settings in the Praga-North (Praga-Polnoc) district and then perhaps finish your explorations with an optional kosher lunch or dinner (own expense) at a local restaurant.
Your tour then ends with a drop-off back at the original start point.
