Warsaw area: Jewish Heritage tour


Tykocin was once an important trade centre owned by Polish kings. Tykocin became a typical Jewish shtetl by 1800, the population was 70% Jewish. Before WWII, the village had 5, 000 inhabitants, half of them Jewish. All of the 2, 500 Jewish residents of Tykocin were taken to the nearby Lopuchowo forest and shot by the Nazis in the Summer of 1941.

Today Tykocin looks the same as it did before WWII - you can still see Jewish wooden houses, one of the finest Synagogues in Poland built in 1642 (now a museum), and admire the perfect harmony of both Christian and Jewish architecture. On the way back, visit Treblinka Extermination camp memorial (optional).

A Recent Review of this tour

Ewa was perfect and exactly what I was hoping for! She customized our trip because I wanted to go the village my grandfather was born in & the village where his parents were married. She did some research ahead of time, perfect for me since I do not speak Polish. She got the priest to open the church for us, great restaurant for lunch, great, great great amount of information for the 5-6 hours in the car driving. Helpful about Polish sights to see along my travels, knows so much history, very personable.
