beautifull cemetery

The synagoque was closed due to restauration during our visit, but the old Jewish cemetery was open en definately worth a visit.

The building is under renovation so you get to only see "the women's room"... which is empty, through its openings you see the main room with men at work while the unfriendly "ticket" (no ticket is given) guy listens to pop music (i was treated to "everybody was kong fu fighting"). You have to enter through the door with a... More

This is probably the smallest synagogue in Krakow, but it's really nice and touching. 5 pl to get in, but it's the only one with a cemetery (the 'old' one of the city) to visit. Absolutely suggested.

interesting synagogue to visit. Beautiful interior and very interesting to see the very old grave stones in the cemetery behind the synagogue. People are still visiting Rabbi Remus grave after so many decades.

Although restoration was well underway at the time of our visit, it was sad to see the dilapidated wooden doors as we entered the Synagogue. The person at the door, as stated in another review, was busy on his mobile & wasn't overly concerned to welcome visitors. However, there's a beautiful ceiling inside and, poignantly, in the graveyard there's a... More

I visited in April 2014 and again in June 2014. it is good to see the building being restored and the paintings on the cveiling being revived. It is worth visiting the graveyard, with its 'wailing wall' of fragments of tombs, and reading the memorial tablets in the yard before entering the synagogue.

Thought there would be a little more by way of atmosphere. The guy on the door was rude, stayed on phone so I did not even know where to go. Did not seem appropriate. Shame. Certainly not a top 10 site as indicated in the normally good DK guides. Not even sure if I located the grave of Remuh. That... More

I stumbled across this tiny synagogue as I was exploring Kazimierz. I was happy to pay the small entrance fee, as I could see that renovation works were trying to restore this once important synagogue. There are many interesting artifacts from hundreds of years ago. Make sure you visit the adjacent cemetery, which has a serene atmosphere, as you contemplate... More

Extraordinary history (as many reviewers have commented), and I have nothing to add. One point though: right now (June 2014), the synagogue is undergoing some major renovations. They're charging a 5 zloty fee to enter the synagogue and cemetery.

A must visit for Jews wishing to connect to the beautiful Jewish world that once existed in Poland. Arrive early.
