Poland is so rich of history, although very tragic it's something we must not forget. Known as the Jewish district in June there's a huge festival that takes place. I recommend you goon with a guide for him to explain the history to you.

At first it was hard for me to get to like the Jewish District because of the sad history, but I had to put all of that behind me and really focus on what it is today. It was a very hip area with lots of cafes and shops. No trip would be complete without spending time in this area!

This district is original and very distinctive in the city. The style, architecture and atmosphere is different from the rest of Krakow. A visit in Krakow without having a walk between the walls of this district could not be complete.

The Jewish District differs from the Old Town, with all it's pomp and ceremony, and is more earthy and relaxed. There are many small streets to explore, 6 Synagogues and 2 Churches and many bars, restaurants and eating places. There seems to always be something going on. It would be good to do a tour with Cracow Free Tours to... More

We did a Free Walking Tour of this area and it was great to hear about what happened to the Jews during WWII who lived here. We had a superb meal here that night and then wandered down to Plac Nowy to watch all the goings on at the fast food eateries.

I found Kazimierz to be a really place to spend a day walking the lovely old streets. There are some hidden gems here, so have a look

This area is the place to be in Kraków. Always something going on. Great bars, restaurants and cafes. Just to grab a beer and sit back and watch the world go by. Best place to hang out in Kraków.

In this district you will find many exiting resturants, bars and coffe shops. Also a great place to just walk around if you are looking to see another side of Krakow.
