I visited the Remuh Synagogue and adjoining cemetery during a private tour of Kazimierz and the associated "Schindler's List" sites around the area. This is a very spiritual place, more a pilgrimage and site of deliberation and reflection than anything else.
The Synagogue and Cemetery date back to the 16th Century, with the latter holding over 700 rare tombstones from the time period. Highlights include the Wailing Wall (made from fragments of tombstones destroyed during the war) and the stone of Moses ben Isserles, one of the outstanding rabbis of the time. My guide (who was very knowledgeable) explained to me several nuances of the stones that I would have missed on my own.
I believe entrance is a few PLN, there is a square right next to the Synagogue with numerous shops and eateries and a Jewish bookstore nearby to complete the experience.
You don't really "enjoy" a visit here as much as remember it and carry it with you for a long time. Definitely worth the trip.
