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

Lots of bars and cafés complimented with great history centred around the .9'munity. Being really well developed and some real cool features like London bus cafés and bar areas with sand and deck chairs

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.

Super cool area. Trendy and cool without trying too hard. The jewish district is scattered with cool bars, art cafes and loads of different food including jewish, polish, turkish and syrian, just to name a few. There are tonnes of bars to explore but head to Alchemia. Thats all you need to know!

I loved the Jewish District. There are plenty of Synagogues to see as well as a lovely square and streets. It is the place to eat with many cheap good local restaurants   It's like stepping back in time.

We stayed on the edge of this curiously hipster area. The buildings appear run down and derelict and covered with graffiti and peeling plasterwork, but the area is immaculately clean, no garbage any where. There are cool bars and great coffee shops by the dozen, quirky shops and fabulous restaurants. Man buns appear to be the fashion statement on the... More

Jus didn' have enough time to explore this fascinating area of Kraków. What we did manage to cram into our short visit was very interesting, particularly the cemetery which was so moving when reading the history about the repositions of the headstones. Had a great lunch too.
