Overview

Step back in time in 2 hour tour to listen to the stories of “Jerusalem of Lithuania” and Litvaks. Our guides will help you to find the traces of the Jewish history in the Old city of Vilna. Walking around the Big and Small ghettos you will discover the signs of the community which was wiped out from the city during WWII.

Meet our guide in front of the Town Hall to start your acquaintance with the Jewish history in Lithuania. You will begin the tour with visiting the Small Jewish Ghetto and the first three streets appointed to the Jews in the 16th c. Learn about Mark Antokolsky, a famous Jewish/Russian sculptor and why he has two birth places. Get to the stunning heart of the Old City. Today only the names of the streets remind us about the original citizens. Find the place where the house of Gaon of Vilna once stood and take a look at his bust close by. A few steps from there you will find a Soviet building in the place where the Great Jewish synagogue once stood. See the pictures; hear the stories of that magnificent building that did not survive the WWII.
After this we will cross the German street to get to the Big Ghetto. Si hi to a Jewish doctor Tsemach Shabad and learn what book he inspired.
Now it is the time to get serious and talk more about the WWII and its horrible consequences to Jewish community. Visit the courtyard where Judenrat (Jewish council) worked and get some insights into the movie “Vilna Ghetto”.

After this we will take you to the spot from where you can see the best view of Choral synagogue, the only active synagogue in Vilnius which survived WWII. Learn more about the Jewish community in Lithuania today.

And last but not least, we will take you to the street where the original Yiddish names of the shops could be seen. The tour ends close to the Jewish information center.
