Treblinka and Tykocin

You can combine your visit to Treblinka with a tour of Tykocin, a well-preserved Jewish shtetl.

The little town of Tykocin looks like a place where time has stood still. The town appears to be exactly as the Jews left it when they were expelled and murdered more than 80 years ago.

Tykocin is an epitome of a typical urban scheme of a shtetl.

Architecturally, it`s one of the best-preserved examples of an old-style shtetl – an East European market town, inhabited mostly but not exclusively by the Jews. Shtetl was the birthplace of a rich and distinctive Jewish culture that described the traditional way of life of Eastern European Jews and was annihilated during World War 2.

As a result, very few shtetls survived to this day in their original shape. The best-known exception in Poland is Tykocin.

The town`s major tourist attraction is a baroque synagogue built in 1642, the second largest in today`s Poland. In 2013 the synagogue of Tykocin was voted one of the “new seven wonders” of Poland, in the third edition of a readers’ contest sponsored by the Polish edition of the National Geographic Traveller magazine.

Walking around the town, you can see 18-th and 19-th century wooden houses in original, baroque urban layout. Its grand scale is dominated by monumental church and monastery.

In Tykocin we will have lunch in a restaurant which serves traditional dishes of Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine.
