Our Hotel was here so we had great local food and amazing walks very friendly area. A long walk to centre of town but lots to see along the way. A lot of difference between the Jewish area and the centre but worth the visit

The square is worth a visit, outside restaurants, Synagogues and a excellent museum which will take up a few hours of the day.

Our hotel was in this area. Lots to see and do in the area, with fabulous resturants, quaint cafes and bars. Great bakery open at 5.30 am, kantors and atms in area but know the rate before you change. Felt safe to walk around on your own. Lots of history in this area worth a guided tour. More old worldly...

Our first day in Krakow we did a personalized golf cart tour, including the Jewish Quarter, the former Jewish Ghetto, and Schindler's factory. We were mesmerized with the Jewish Quarter and spent the second day getting more acquainted and revisiting some of the historic sites. We ate a breakfast buffet at Kolanko No 6 and toured the Remuh Synagogue and... More

I thought there would be more to see here? There arrears to be some nice cafe bars - we did not eat here though as we had eaten in Old Town. Not many shops. An out door "market" type area.

Cool place to walk around with street art, Jewish book shops, cafes and synagogues. Probably worth researching in advance as we went on a Saturday morning so found a lot of things closed as people were praying. Funky part of town and has a good vibe. Worth us going back to go inside the synagogues next time.

Went on a free walking tour of the Jewish district. It was very interesting. Were shown various synagogues and taken round the original Jewish quarter before walking across a river bridge to see the Jewish ghetto where 20,000 people were herded into an area suitable for less than 2,000. This included the 'Square of deportations' where there is now a... More

Our walk around the district was emotional as it was very easy to imagine how it might have been during the war. We had a walking guide which was necessary as it is easy to get lost and to miss a lot.
