    Beautiful during both day and night. Frequently busy as it is a way into the main town. Oddly felt safe, even at night time as there are still plenty of people about.

    Up ,out and about on a beautiful but cold February morning, my twin brother and I headed from Stare Miasto where we were staying over to the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) to have a day out exploring this historic and vibrant district of this fascinating city, we visited Ulica Szeroka ,a street we always look forward to visiting.
    This street is located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, along this street you'll find the Wolf Pepper Synagogue, Remuh Synagogue and the Old Synagogue which are beautiful places of worship that thankfully survived the horrors of the German occupation of World War Two, also along the street are some amazing pubs,bars,cafe's and restaurants, we enjoyed beers in Krokodyli Pub ,its just a fantastic street to check out if you're planning a holiday to Krakow and find yourself in the Jewish Quarter.

    Dzielnica Zydowska is the central plaza that opens up from the Old Synagogue ( Stara Synagoga ) .
    There's lots of interest here ,the beautiful synagogue's such as Old Synagogue, Remuh Synagogue and Wolf Popper Synagogue, there's some really touching monuments relating to the plight of the Jewish faith during World War Two and of course you have the pubs,bars, cafe's and restaurants on this square ,its such an exhilarating place to visit if you're in the Jewish Quarter, easy to locate, just walk along Ulica Szeroka.

    There were some teenagers abseiling down one of the tower structures here. They were brave to even climb up it. An excellent piece of entry level ‘urban exploration’.

    Kazimierz district ( Jewish Quarter ) is one of my favourite area's of this city to visit, although I always stay in the Stare Miasto district I have whole days out here ,I love the history attached to this area,if one street encapsulates all that's amazing about Kazimierz district its Miodowa.
    This is quite a long street, lots of interesting buildings along this street such as Temple Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues in Krakow, you can't ignore the atrocities that occurred in this district and even along this street during World War Two, I love nothing better than strolling down this street and enjoying the architecture, atmosphere and dropping into a bar or pub along Miodowa.
    Well worth checking out if you're in the Kazimierz district of Krakow.

    This is a gorgeous little square in the heart of the Old Town that's most definitely well worth checking out, from this square you have great views of St Francis Of Assisi Church plus the wonderful buildings that form this square, there's a statue in honour of twice Mayor of Krakow Mikolag Zyblikiewicz ,its such a photogenic square that's well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Krakow.

    If you are interested in abandonned buildings, places, and things then the train graveyard is a must see! I had seen a post that it was somewhere in Krakow area but found it hard to find more information. After cycling there from Krakow center, which is a nice ride, I found that the site of the train graveyard is actually on the main train line with a station right next to it!
    There is a long pedestrian bridge with steps leading down to the trains, the trains are unfenced and can be explored.
    Very atmospheric and great for photos and thinking about the busy lives that the trains have had, now to be resting up here.
    Be wary as there are some undesirables hanging out there too, so perhaps dont take all your expensive kit and dont be too naive going to a place like this.

    Located in the heart of the Old Town of Krakow is this wonderful street.
    Its a street with some amazing architecture along especially the Jagiellonian University faculty buildings which are some of the finest looking buildings in this fascinating city ,add to this some great pubs and restaurants makes a walk down Ulica Swietego Anny such a pleasure.
    Well worth checking out if you're in the Old Town of Krakow.

    When Podgorze was a free city this was once the main market square until the independent city was absorbed into Krakow in 1915 ,the square was originally laid out in the 18th century at the foot of Lasota Hill.
    This was once a bustling market place but nowadays is a very impressive square that's surrounded by some really good looking buildings and the centrepiece of the square is one of the most beautiful churches in Poland namely St Josephs Church ,it's a beautiful square to check out if you're in the Podgorze District .
