About

The time of the German occupation of Krakow is considered to be the most difficult period in the history of the city. It was a time of darkness but also a time of true heroes. A time of courage, fear and betrayal, when even the simplest decision could bare grave consequences. A time that lives in us thanks to the stories of our parents and grandparents.


On this tour we will learn about the Nazi plans towards the Poles and understand how they repressed their victims. We will also talk about the citizens of Krakow and their attitudes towards the Germans.


That’s true – Kraków didn’t have an uprising and the city wasn’t demolished, but resistance movement still had it’s part during WWII. Join the World War 2 in Kraków FREE walking TOUR and learn more!


During the tour you will see:

  • St. Michael’s prison

  • Gestapo headquarters
