The Jewish Quarter in Krakow is a small area - easily walked in an hour. From Wawel Castle, it is an easy 20 minute walk. There are a few synagogues and a main square.

Lots to see and do here and plenty of night life. There is also an area that dose street food which I highly recommend and it was well worth the long walk.

From dilapidated old soviet-era buildings to funky nightclubs and exquisite cafes, this is where it's at in Krakow. If you've never tried a Zapiekanka, this is your chance - a delectable halved baguette with grilled mushroom, cheese and about 100 other options. You'll find them everywhere in Kracow, but nowhere better that in this district. WALKING - that's what it's... More

We visited as an 'extra' on our organised tour. Fantastic guide who told the story of the population with great empathy. We visited the ghetto, and a synagogue, the memorial to the Jewish people in the square where they were rounded among other things. I would recommend you watch Schindler's list before you go because there were many areas relating... More

I stayed in Kazimierz during my trip to Krakow and I'm happy I did so as it's the perfect combination of historical sights and remembrance buildings and a very lively area filled with very good pubs and restaurants. Before visiting Auschwitz, one can take a tour of Kazimiers and learn about the Jewish district and the atrocities happened there under... More

Great place to visit to see some history and enjoy Jewish music but this place lights up at night. The food stall square is a great place to get some quick tasty food. The area has a bohemian feel to it and you can find the best Zapiekanka in the Plac Nowy. There are so many bars and restaurants which... More

It is not the most beautiful area of this charming city, but it is an amazing place to follow the Jewish steps since the medieval ages until the history starting after the second world war. It is nice to feel the tolerant behavior from the people and the cultural rescue that is being doing so close to the Auschwitz Nazi... More

Great flea market - lots of nice edgy bars and cafes. Beautiful architecture - about 20 minutes south of main square and to the left!
