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!

A very important synagogue for its history and the contributions of its famous Rabbi Moses Isserles to the Ashkenazi Jews practice. Spend time in the adjacent cemetery to see graves dating back to 15th century as well as a re-dedication wall of parts of tombstones destroyed in the Holocaust Go inspite of the reconstruction

As other reviewers have pointed out there is renovation going on which seems to have been underway for quite some time now. We paid our 5 zlotys each and I was given a shawl to cover my bare shoulders and my husband a skull cap to wear. From behind some bars you could see the room being renovated and the... More

One of the several important old synagogues in Kraków. This one is under renovation. Therefore can only see it from the back room and it is not restored. What is important and should be seen is the old cemetery, which is adjacent to the synagogue. The cemetery contains the graves of two outstanding medieval Jewish scholars of Europe. These 2... More

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.
