Meet your guide in front of the Lviv Opera and Ballet Theatre and start a comprehensive walking tour. You will step back in time and dive into the atmosphere of a medieval Jewish town, with its legends and secrets, prosperous and dramatic stories. This tour will show you how strongly Jewish culture has influenced the city’s life throughout the centuries. The history of the Jewish community of Lviv dates back to the 14th century, when a so-called Krakow suburb appeared at the foot of the High Castle Hill. The Jewish population was growing fast and soon many buildings, synagogues ,and community institutions were built on the territory of Jewish Ghetto. The main business of Jews in the Middle Ages was trade and craft. That fact that Jewish merchants and craftsmen competed with other populations of the city caused many misfortunes to the Jewish community, including numerous pogroms and persecutions in 17-18th centuries. Your guide will tell you about the two Jewish communities in Lviv, subordinated to different authorities. This distinguishes the Jewish community of Lviv from other European cities. With your guide, you will explore the Jewish Quarter, walk through Staroevreiskaya Street and discover the ruins of the Golden Rose Synagogue. You will have a complete overview of the Jewish heritage of Lviv on this tour.

Gids niet geïnspireerd en meer met zichzelf bezig dan met haar taak. Moet - helaas - worden afgeraden

Die Führung war sehr interessant und es hat alles gut geklappt. Unser Guide Paul war sehr freundlich und kompetent.
