About the Polish Street Food Tour
Today street food has become a new way of learning about history. Fortunately, Krakow is part of this culture and has a lot of street food to offer us, from the most traditional to the most modern.
Through our street food tour we will get to know the history of Krakow through traditional food in its most street version.
Although it sounds like something very new, it will surely surprise you to know that sell food on the street is a really old tradition in our city.
Some of the foods that we will taste will transport us to the 16th century or to a closer time, such as communism.
The tour will pass through the streets of Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter of Krakow, an area full of local and festive atmosphere, where the alternative and the bohemian is the main essence of the atmosphere.
Kazimierz is often visited to learn about Jewish history and suffering, but why not explore it in a more local and tasty way?
This is one of our main objectives, that you get to know the neighborhood like one more local, bring you closer to the real atmosphere of Kazimierz and become part of it, thanks to this unique and special gastronomic tour.

- We will wander the labyrinthine alleys of the Jewish quarter in search of street art and culture
- Food truck parks
- Visit and experience the local atmosphere in the heart of Kazimierz
