It takes a 10 minutes walk from Kazimierz district, but it is worth the visit. Very nice setting, lot of history and special atmosphere.

This is a working cemetery but filled with Krakow's Jews and near the famous Kupa Shul and Hoche Shul, and the JCC. Get a guide and learn the stories of those who are buried here

Another place that reminds us of a terrible fate of the Jewish during German occupation. Take your time, and stroll through. This cemetery was destroyed during WWII. The gravestones were recovered after, and "put together".

It's a cemetery, if you're looking for something exciting to happen here, don't. But, it is a nice place for reflection and it's interesting to read all the old tombstones. The large memorial with all the tombstones is also pretty interesting.

This cemetery contains the graves of many famous Polish Jewish scholars and Rabbis. I visited in order to find the grave of the famous Polish Jewish painter Mauricy Gottlieb who painted the famous "Day of Atonement".

Up front, I am Jewish so it will not surprise you how distressing it is to walk into a cemetery that has been put back together as best as possible using the remnants of gravestones that had been desecrated by the Nazi occupation. Heartbreaking.

Interesting to see, very peaceful. Graves packed in, higgledy piggledy tomb tones, old mixed with new, stones set into the walls. Worth seeing. Men have to cover their heads, but they hand out skull caps at the entrance if you don't have anything.

If you are interested in Jewish Krakow then this is well worth a visit. There are some moving tributes to those people who lost their lives in the holocaust. As well as being a cemetery is also home to so some lovely birds, trees and plants. Unfortunately our trip was cut short by a thunder storm!.

It's weird seeing reviews saying that it is "just tombs". What else do you expect from a cemetery? :) That said this cemetery is absolutely worthwile to visit. Not as much damaged as the Old Jewish Cemetery it looks more spooky but at the same time maybe even more genuine with very densily placed headstones. And it is a great... More

Not something you want to visit unless you're a gothic freak or if your mum is buried there. I'd give it a wide berth...
