Went to this unique area several times during our short stay in Kraków. Plenty of history as you walk around the district. Plenty of bars and restaurants to visit, sit down and watch the world go by. Extremely competitive prices for drinks and meals.

We went on a waking tour to here, free tour meeting at St Mary's in the square. Very atmospheric area, Schindlers factory over the road , Helena Rubinsteins former Home, bars, churches, stories of the film with locations of the shoots. Pretty much made you think about the past. Schindlers list come to life. Well worth a half day away... More

Now this is a unique site which must be visited. It is the center of the old and destroyed and non existent Jewish quarter, since the Jews were murdered by the Nazis. And just for that at deserves a visit One can see many stores and restaurants which have a Jewish thene, have Hebrew writing, and serve Jewish style cuisine.... More

Definitely worth visiting, but with a dodgy knee my attention was a bit elsewhere. I liked it, I thought it was worth it but somehow it is not selling itself. I found it a bit awkward. As a Brooklyn, American Irish, Jews/ Germans/ Poles are part of my life. But I found this visit difficult as my English husband does... More

Loads of history. Very sad but I recommend a visit and to travel in the past. Not too far from Dielta Street.

Sure Main Square is old and beautiful, but the the best area is always where the locals hang out. I love the mixture of traditional Jewish style with modern/hipster vibe. It's very unique place.

Had lunch here after visiting Oskar Schindler Factory. Interesting walk around the area, but I think there would be more atmospher in the evening.

This area is the old Jewish district and is a cool spot to check out. Not because it's Jewish just because the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants are great. They're is a definite vibe here and less touristy than old town krakow. Check it out and have a few drinks and a meal here.

We took a walking tour to visit this portion of Krakow. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic and filled us in with every detail. It was very worth the time spent on this tour.

Despite the cruel and inhumane treatment of the Jewish population, the area they formally lived in was kept remarkably well. There is so much to see, and easy to imagine what life was like before all the strife. I strongly suggest taking a tour. We used Discover Krakow and they are fairly inexpensive and they do a great job of... More
