Dearest expat friends,

One of the most well known and critically acclaimed movies of all time, especially on the topic of the Second World War and the Jewish extermination initiated by the Nazi party, is Schindlers List. All shot in black and white – in order to make the impact on the public more powerful – except 3 colorful symbols throughout the movie, it was shot in Kraków, Poland. The most well known/popular location is the Pub Stajnia near Plac Nowy. This location is a “Must see” and is a part of the “Jewish district tour” that many companies offer.

The tour guides that will present you Kazimierz and Podgorze will eventually bring you to Pub Stajnia and show you the outside walls of the garden covered with pictures from diverse movies shot there, including Schindlers List 😉 The Pub Stajnia has quite a central location in the Kazimierz region of Kraków.  It’s a popular place if you like to dance tango/salsa/bachata as they organise dancing nights 😉

Where: Józefa 12, 31-056 Kraków, Poland

Whom to take with you: Someone interested in the history of the Jewish district or a movie fan / buff who enjoyed Schindler’s List. You can show him the pictures on the walls with scenes from the movie + he/she will probably be happy to take pictures of the stairway featured in the movie.

Tips and tricks: You cannot pay by card here so make sure you have cash with you. If you don’t, don’t fret and make sure you have enough time to make a run for it to the ATM on the street 😉 But it’s nicer if you are not alone, so that they would think you are running away before you pay up 😉 Also, there is only one toilet for the ladies and one or the men, so there may be a queue.

 Yours truly,

The Twisted Red LadyBug
