Jewish Lviv is the history of one of the most amazing Jewish communities of Europe from it’s foundation via it’s almost complete destruction to it’s reconstruction. On our Lviv Free Walking Tour – Jewish Lviv we want to take you on a 3 hour walk on which you will get to know the entire history of Jewish life in Lviv. We will introduce you to the most important Jewish people in Lviv. Get to know the painter Erno Erb, find out who drank at the restaurant of Naftali Töpfer, hear about the most famous Yiddish language theater in Eastern Europe and see where some of the most famous Lviv Jews used to live.
But of course a history of Jewish Lviv can not spare the dark times of the city and therefore we will also show you the places where the Lviv Ghetto used to be after the Shoa started. We will guide you to all the places related to the Holocaust in Lviv and show you the former Jewish quarter. On our tour you will also get to know one of the two last remaining synagogues in Lviv that is now a Jewish Cultural Center. Here you may be able to talk to people who are active in the preservation of local Jewish heritage in Lviv.
We are very sure that this is the best Jewish tour that this city has to offer. It has been carefully researched by our team members who are historians and experts on Jewish history and it will show you places that no other tour can offer you! Come with us, to discover the amazing Jewish history of this city!
Our tradition is to stop for a coffee on every free tour. This is to get to know each other better and also for you to ask our guides all kinds of questions. On this tour we actually visit one of the most original coffee shops of Lviv called Sztucka. Here you can discover some Austrian and Jewish antiques and enjoy some tasty Austrian coffee!
