Jewish Galicia
The old areas of Galicia were once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before 1918. The region has still a characteristic flair and a great deal of undiscovered beauty. Until World War II it had a large Jewish population, and Jewish stories and songs often refer to it. There are old centres of Chassidism, synagogues, cemeteries and other sites still reminiscent of a past, multicultural era. The tour focuses on Jewish history, but it includes several other very interesting attractions.

The tour program can be modified to suit your preferences.
