Jewish Heritage Tour


Home > Tours in Vilnius > Jewish Heritage Tour

Before World War 2, almost 45 % of total city population were Jews. Over 100 active synagogues and prayer houses existed here, 6 Jewish daily newspapers were printed and Yiddish language was easily heard on the streets. We would like to bring you closer the long and interesting history of Jewish community who lived here in Vilnius since 14th century.

We will start our tour with visiting the only surviving Jewish synagogue in Vilnius – Great Choral Synagogue. Tens of others synagogues were destroyed during the World War 2 by Germans so this i the only heritage of this kind that today can be admired in Vilnius which before the Holocaust was often called the Jerusalem of Lithuania. Then we will go to Paneriai (Ponary) – a mass murder site of approx 100 000 people (mainly Jews and Poles). Located in the suburbs of Vilnius, today is commemorated by memorial to the victims of German Nazis. Afterwards we will come back to the centre and show you Jewish cemetery and the area of former Jewish Ghetto in Old Town of Vilnius.
