Typical shtetl of Tykocin (+ optional: Treblinka extermination camp)

Tykocin was once an important trade centre owned by Polish kings, by 1800 became a typical Jewish shtetl, the population was 70% Jewish. Before WW2, the village had 5,000 inhabitants, half of them Jewish. All of the 2,500 Jewish residents of Tykocin were taken to the nearby Lopuchowo forest and shot by the Nazis in the Summer of 1941. Today Tykocin looks the same as it did before WW2 – you can still see Jewish wooden houses, one of the finest synagogues in Poland built in 1642 (now museum) and admire the perfect harmony of both Christian and Jewish architecture. On the way back visit to Treblinka Extermination camp memorial (optional)
