Stay on the square and visiting the Synagogue on the square is a must, if you talk to the people there they will tell you about the place. be aware of the men in buggy style vehicles as they may charge high prices and it's worth waiting or shopping around for that particular tour.

Luckily didn't have to make any special arrangement to go and see this ''Area'' as it is within the walking distance of the Central Heart of Krakow. Perhaps with a guided tour and some added spices I might have had a different view. Yes there is a little oldie worldie feel to it but nothing so outstanding ! If the... More

we went on a bus tour around here and it was very interesting and pointed out the main points of interest such as the remains of the getto wall.

A must see to visit! So much history around this town. Take a tour, with Guia Cracovia. Pl - Private Tours, to hear all about the town and places to go.

We went here after visiting schlinders factory so knew the history and stories, lots of restaurants. Also took a electric car tour of this area which also helped with history and pointing out of key buildings areas as it is quite a criss cross of streets.

Good area to walk around. Close to the river too. We did an audio tour of the old Jewish Synagogue, which was informative and interesting.

Personally we thought it lacked character and there seemed nothing unique or special about the area. We wouldn't bother going next time

I found it very interesting to visit. The Old Synagog is must. The District, on a warm day is crowded with tourist, but you still get a feeling for it. The building and the streets are interesting in themselves and the restaurants were very good- some a little pricy. To see Krakow it is almost a must to see the... More

We loved the Kazimierz it is well sign posted and full of beautiful buildings and we felt a great vibe. It's very popular with the students but during the day you could find a quite spot and sit and soak up the atmosphere. Admittedly the area is not as clean as the main square but this did not distract from... More
