There is not that much to see if you were to just wander around by yourself you need a guide to point out the various palces of interest, we used free walking tours who were excellent.

Strolling old narrow streets of the eastern half of Krakow’s Kazimierz district you can still find a unique atmosphere of the Jewish past of this area. I'd say that it has become an equivalent of London’s Soho with its mushrooming cafes and nightlife spots. It also has a newborn reputation as a haven of artists and the young have made... More

After all, the greatest religions have one common father: Abraham. It is worthwhile to find out what jewish religion and the way of living was all about in old Krakow. You can experience some of this tradition in the meuseum in old synagogue. Geting inside after having walked through the district streets - Jewish Kazimierz - you are prepared for... More

A lovely area filled with pubs and clubs but also a great market area that hosts a flea market on Sunday and in the evening has loads of grill style Polish food booths. Great food, sausages, shish kebabs, mixed vegetable kebabs, bbq style food the list is endless. The list is endless and very tasty. Loads of great bars. Fantastic... More

You can imagine yourself back in the time when this was a thriving Jewish Community. Films can never do justice to what this would have felt like. A combination of imagination and old photos are the nearest you can get to it. Even parts of modern day New York help.

Not far from the hotel within walking distance of the old square in Kraków. The old Jewish quarters, still a few old shops on the main road which look as though still in the forties. Nice restaurants.

This is a pretty place calming and colorful despite its sad history. The whole area is filled with very interesting things to see and if u get Izabella as your guide on the free walking tour ,which can be picked up outside the old synagogue on the far end of the square,then you'll have fun.
