Kazimiesz was formerly a town, later added to the Cracow's borders. It has a lot of cozy and historical places. You can reminescence there, party there, just do some sightseeing. It's very elastic when it comes to the reasons for the visit.

A visit to the Jewish quarter also covers the square that is central to this and the ghetto where many thousands were effectively jailed before being deported.

Wherever we went with my group was nothing short of very ordinary. It's not even worth walking through the area we walked through. Nothing to see except lots of people on the sidewalk. Not worth the time!

South of the river is Kazmierz, the former Jewish District of Krakow. We visited on a guided tour. I was a bit disappointed. We saw a Jewish cemetery and adjoining synagogue. Our tour also took us to the misnamed Schindler Museum, which has little to...More

A smaller town compared to Rynek Glowny, Kazmierz is not less historical. What probably used to be a ghost town then a gangster town is now a lively town of restaurants and pubs. It has a soho bohemian feel on the streets. Its 7 synagouges...More
