When you go to the Getto, it is a square. The history is amazing with the symbolic chairs and the pharmacy on the corner.

Fitting memorial , we visited twice once as part of a tour on one of the small tour carts - worth doing as we had an audio guide and driver to explain the history and meaning about the ghetto area and memorial.

An important place to visit, this was the main square of the Jewish Ghetto during the war. A place of terror, executions and deportation, the chairs and guard house remind us of real people not numbers- mums, dads, couples, children, brothers, sisters and grandparents. Reading...More

I'm really sorry we walked there. Sorry not to be more help. The taxis are cheap and they don't rip you off. I suggest you get a map and walk as you see so many sights along the way.
