    Absolutely stunning! The outside, while grand, does not do the inside justice at all. The sheer size of the inside is deceptive and the beautiful artwork and ornaments are breath taking.

    While the place is a solemn venue it is a marvel to walk around and take it all in.

    What an amazing Museum if you are interested about history this is one for you, but it is not stuffy, i think most people would find it interesting

    It's an interesting church, with quite rich history - one of the oldest in Krakow. It's little in it but definitely worth a visit.

    The Bosak building is an interesting asset to the Kazimierz District and one of the most easily identifiable. Whilst the murals can be seen from some distance depicting the Bosak family and telling the story of their efforts to smuggle medicines and money into the Ghettos there really could be more made of this.

    Currently there is only a plaque explaining the family that lived there and the murals that can be seen from a distance. In order to get close up you would need to be in a private car park. Asking nicely may get you in for a closer look.

    This beautiful , Gothic style 13th Cent. small church is located only a few minutes walk from St. Marry Basilica , on the north east corner of Old Town Krakow . A very nice example of the many churches you may find and enjoy while strolling the Old Town . Not as famous maybe , but worth a visit if you love churches .

    If you love medieval art as much as I do, this is definitely worth your time. Some very beautiful pieces and photography is allowed. Translations in English throughout but unfortunately not broader explanations to give the art some context. An exhibition in the basement unfortunately had no English explanations so had no idea what I was looking at. I was one of the handful of people in the museum that Sunday. A slightly annoying thing as someone else mentioned are staff following you around from room to room but that’s also something I’m used to in museums in formerly communist countries.

    It does not work any more as a synagogue but as a book store. You can find books in several different languages. If you go to a tour in Kazimierska, it will cover also this synagogue. It is worth to make a short visit there but nothing special. It is free to enter.

    The Ark of the Lord has an extraordinary 60 + year history of its founding by the steelworker residents of Nowa Huta (New Steel Plant) starting in 1960. Communist authorities, at the time of their approval of a new church, required it not look like a typical Catholic Church. The architect designed and made reference to the biblical Noah's Ark. It was built by hand by the local steelworkers who also made significant contributions to its construction. One must visit th o personally appreciate its design, construction and use for the community

    This building is where 183 faculty members were invited to a "dinner party" by the nazi's and then arrested and murdered. More info and pics at etbtravelphotography blog

    There really isn't a lot to look at. Unless you are desperate to understand the history of Krakow, give it a miss. Travelling alone and taking in the sights, I was only in there fifteen minutes.

    If the weather is good, this is a great place to have coffee and desserts, enjoying the fresh air and the scenery. Staying there is possible as well.

    If there's one building that encapsulates the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) it's the wonderful building House Of Landau that's found on the most beautiful street in the Jewish Quarter namely Ulica Szeroka.
    A former family house ,it's now a very good restaurant and bar ,very popular ,I love the look of this building built in the 19th century, it looks so good especially at night when illuminated.
    I love visiting the wonderful and eclectic Jewish Quarter and Ulica Szeroka is one of my favourite destinations and buildings such as House Of Landau make this area a joy to visit.
    Well worth checking out.

    The Free Savings Bank Of The Royal City Of Podgorze is a building you will probably walk past without giving it a second look as your walking around Pidgorze but it houses a very dark secret.
    The building was completed by 1910 ,The Free Savings Bank Of The Royal City Of Podgorze was this district's most beautiful building ,designed by Antoni Dostal boasting a very impressive secessionist facade ,if you look closely you can see the Podgorze coat of arms at the top of the building,it's just one splendid looking building.
    During the dark days of WW2 the Jewish Social Self Help Organisation were allotted this building and it was from this building that the life and death decisions ( selections ) were made which decided which Jews would be transferred to the death camps as the ghetto shrank.
    The building still in operation as a bank but it's sinister past is a vivid reminder of the terrors that occurred during WW2 in Krakow.
    Easy to locate on Ulica Jozenfińska.
    Well worth checking out.

    We walked along the river and the weather was excellent. If one gets a chance to cycle around this place then it is even better. There are bridges at regular distances and one can get public transport easily. So walk and breathe fresh air, soak in the beauty
