Although there are a number of significant remains from the Jewish presence in Krakow, they are now mostly museum-like (there are not many Jews actually living in Kazimierz nowadays). The district is now an epicenter of a young, hip culture.

Went on the Schindlers walking tour which took in some of the film locations, Jewish quarter and Schlinders factory. Very interesting, knowledgeable guide, I would recommend going with a guide because some of the locations you would have trouble finding on your own.

Very interesting area with far fewer tourist around but avoid the overpriced restaurants in the main square.. More "local" feel to the place with more of the milk bars to eat at-worth doing the food is cheap and good. A number of Jewish synagogues and the Jewish museum can be visited.

Took an electric car tour around this area visiting the oldest synagogue and churches then returned in the evening to eat at one of the many Jewish restaurants.

Having a grandmother who grew up in this part of town always makes this area extra special to me. The architecture is beautiful and each building is soaked with stories and great historical significance. I recommend just walking through the streets and absorbing the atmosphere.

I took the free walking tour. I was originally planning to wander around by myself, but so glad I had a guide. It was a very quiet day when I went, so we were able to walk around in peace. It is hard not to feel an overwhelming sadness when things are pointed out and stories are told about the... More

The area is littered with small but busy bars. We visited both the Singer pub and Alchemy. Great crowds with plenty of buzz. Cheap beer and drinks with great service. Welcome respite from cold weather.
