It was Szeroka Street - albeit more of a square than a street of which was the starting point of the old Jewish quarter in Krakow. In some sense things don't feel like they have changed, even the newer cafe's and restaurants that have opened have remained tasteful in a bid to keep the area traditional to its routes. The area is also home to 2 of the most famous synagogues so definitely worth a stop and some time to soak it up.

Take a guide for a more detailed appreciation of the area.

This is the main street in the old Jewish quarter of Krakow.
The name "main street" may be misleading, as it as tranquil and picturesque as it gets.
The street features several synagogues, restaurants and shops.

Walking around in the old Jewish neighborhood is calming, interesting. It teases your imagination about the life that was lived here and the history is very clear wherever you look. The restorations are very gently made with respect for the history and that is why the entire Kazimierz area simultaneously is a very lively, modern and hip place. Lots of cool resturants and small art caves

Without a shadow of a doubt one of the most famous streets in the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) ,it's a street ,well more of a square that has a high density of synagogues and innumerable pubs,bars and restaurants and some amazing architecture,the wonderful statue of Jan Karski is a selfie magnet.
Commanding the square is the Old Synagogue which dates from 1407 ,you also have the Remuh Synagogue which is a beautiful synagogue that dates from 1556 ,the Wolf Popper Synagogue is a fabulous looking building and some of the buildings here are awesome ,the Rubinstien building is particularly impressive, the nightlife here is also very good,Bistro Szara,Babelstien,Pub Ulica Krokodyli ,Ariel to name but some make this a great street to visit,it's really good that a street that is so historically important has survived the trails and tribulations that has occurred especially during WW2, it's a wonderful street and area to visit and most definitely well worth checking out.

Szeroka Street is simply beautiful.
Adorned with lots of quirky bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend visiting here if you are in Kraków.

The mulled cider in the Israeli Hamsa bar is delicious!

The most famous and beautiful street in the Jewish Quarter is Ulica Szeroka ,a street I always look forward to visiting on any trip to Krakow I take .
This is the old part of the Jewish Quarter ,the synagogues along this street are amazing ,The Old Synagogue,Remuh Synagogue,Wolf Pepper Synagogue and made even more fascinating to view when you consider that during the German Army occupation of World War Two nearly all vestiges of the Jewish faith were obliterated ,the architecture is also superb along this street ,great looking building line both sides of Ulica Szeroka ,let's not forget the great pubs,cafés,bars and restaurants along the street,Krokodyli Pub,Bistro Szara ,Babelstein are just some of my favourite haunts along this street ,all in all it's a great street to check out if you're in the Kazimierz District.

This street and square are a mixture of the old buildings and synagogues that constituted the jewish quarter of the city and the modern Jewish oriented businesses.

Nice quarter with many many restaurants! The whole Kazimierz area is weird (in a good way): Feels like time has stopped there even though the streets were full of people and pubs, shops and restaurants were very lively

Szeroka Street is the most beautiful street in the Jewish Quarter ( kazimierz District ) and it's certainly the most visited.
There is so much to see on this street with it's great restaurants and cafe's,I love to visit Ariel restaurant and enjoy a traditional Polish meal and listen to the Klezmer music played nightly here,there's plenty of other restaurants here also and all are well worth checking out.
Besides the nightlife of this street there are some great synagogues to visit and the architecture is stunning.
Many of the tours of the Jewish Quarter start here and your not to far from that most evocative areas of the Jewish Quarter namely Podgorze and your also very close to Schindler's Factory.
This is most definitely a street you should seek out if your planning a trip to the Jewish Quarter.

This is a very famous and historical street in what was the former Jewish district in Krakow. The Remuh synagogue is located on this street.
