Great variety of bars and restaurants. Many interesting synagogues and places of interest. Many tours by golf cart type buggies throughout the area.

I felt sadness when visiting the old Jewish neighborhood of Krakow. How not to when the pre-war population of Jews was about 68,000 and now numbers less than 400? That small group can't support even the few actual synagogues left so they are put to use as other venues: concert and cultural events etc. Lots of people milling about -... More

Since the early 1990's it has been rediscovered and today it is Krakow's most exciting district area with... More

Stayed in Kazimierz (the Jewish Quarter) at the Aparthotel Spatz. We found the area to be all we'd hoped for and more. Fantastic Bars and Restaurants on just about every corner (and in-between to). The place just oozes history, and it has to be said, sadness. We loved exploring every street and alleyway in and around Kazimierz, it really is... More
