Your guide will greet you at the hotel and invite you for the fully private sightseeing. The history of Jews in Gdansk probably dates back to X century. As an important seaport, Gdansk developed economically, industrially and culturally. In the XV and XVI century Gdansk became the most densely populated and most prosperous city in Poland. The affluent city attracted Jewish merchants. They contributed to the development of trade, industry and crafts. At the end of the XIX century, the Jews erected the largest synagogue in the city. It was a symbol of the unification of Gdansk Jews – and was destroyed by Germans in 1939. During the tour walk through the Old Town and see the places related to the Jewish history of the city. Stop by the place where the Great Synagogue was located, the former Jewish Ghetto area in Granary Island, and the Kindertransports monument. Hear about famous Jewish Theatre in Gdansk and learn what Kindertransports were. In the end see the sole remaining synagogue in the city – the New Synagogue in Wrzeszcz, built in 1926. Going back to your hotel, learn from your guide what else you can discover on your own after this tour.
