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!

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
