Book

This private walking tour encompasses the 600-year history of Vilnius' Jewish community. Walk around the Jewish district in the old town, visit the synagogue, and learn how the German occupation obliterated much of this community.
This informative walking tour reflects upon the harrowing events of the 1941-44 German occupation. Stop at the site of one of Vilnius' two Jewish ghettos—an area encircled by barbed wire and transformed into a Jewish prison camp. Then visit the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum which offers an insight into Jewish culture and traditions—both past and present.
