Tucked in the corner but the guide knew that.

Quaint very old synagogue which is under restoration but steep in history and has the cemetery at the rear which also has lots of good stories to be told.

Thought was included in tourist card. Not. Again. Person in entrance told me that I have to pay because this is an active temple. Excuse me? ! Seriously *! Pay? ! No way Jose. Thanx.

There may not be a lot to see as the Synagogue itself continues to be under renovations, but the small contribution you are asked to make goes towards the costs of the work, so at least you can see the results. The outside is possibly the most interesting bit, with various plaques commemorating the Holocaust itself and the various figures... More

We slipped in to the cemetery in the early morning sun and it had a beautiful calm atmosphere. Renovations are ongoing inside and out in the graveyard which adds to the atmosphere rather than detracts from it.

this is true that there is not much left of the Remu synagogue apart from a small room under construction and an old cemetery. However, this is in my opinion one of the only synagogue in Cracow that has kept a kind of its original"spirituality".

The cemetery and its wall of tombstones are deeply moving. The atmosphere of the place is removed from the slightly touristy main street in Kazimierz. Try not no miss it while visiting the neighborhood.

Ticket 5zl to enter... disappointing. Under reconstruction... A small, decadent room, to be seen from the outside... not much to see, really, at least for my eyes. The cemetery, well... I have not spent much time there either... I had just spent 1 hours the New Jewish Cemetery already, much bigger and peaceful, and free entrance. Basically the only other... More

You can just visit a small room for women. Ongoing renovation is a mess. 5 zlotys (1,5 USD) per admission it's not much, but it is not worth more. The cemetery is interesting.

You're requested to pay 5 PLN at the entrance for restoration that seems to be in place at least for the last two years, looking at the reviews. Right now you can visit only the women's section and the cemetery. I must say that cemetery is really interesting, though. A lot of stones left on graves by the visitors and,... More

This old cemetery is haunting to say the least. The part that got me was "The Wailing Wall" made out of broken tombstones that the Nazis broke years ago. There's a lot of history here!
