Was a good place to visit at the end of our three days when we had some understanding of what happened here during the war.

We visited Corpus Christi church which is the most amazing church internally that I have ever seen. Went on to walk around the Jewish quarter which was very picturesque. Many synagogues and a Jewish museum, bookshop, information centre, restaurants.

Of course everyone who visits Krakow wants to spend time in Market Square and the surrounding Old Town. It is beautiful and a great experience. However, if you miss Kasimierz you are missing the heart of Krakow, in my opinion. If you visit NYC and like the lower East Side or Greenwich Village you will like this area. It is... More

The Jewish District of Krakow has that sense of a place that had its progress halted by the horrible acts of the early to mid 20th century. There are so many old synagogues and buildings that show the real lives of those who would be hunted down and murdered by the Nazis. We came here as part of a walking... More

Kazimierz is a bit like a time machine. It lives and breaths Polish and Jewish history. Definitely my favourite part of Kraków and in my opinion most worth seeing. This place really have a soul like no other part of the city. There are lots of restaurants and a great tea house.

Kazimierz is the area where Krakow's Jewish community lived for 400 or so years until the Nazis came along and forced the whole community out and into the ghetto created on the other side of the river in the Podgorze area, from where they were sent to their deaths. I understand that Kazimierz has become a very hip area these... More

We were staying in a hotel very close to the Jewish District so it seemed appropriate to walk through the area and learn something about its history. I think that we walked through it 4 times, 3 times during the day, and once after dark. There are a great range of shops and restaurants throughout the area.
