“History and Rememberance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Take time to research the area before visiting and then appreciate the history of the "Jewish Quarter". Allow a few moments for reflection also about the unimaginable events that took place during the occupation of the town and relocation of the Jewish community. I sends a shiver down your spine.

“Try to take a guided tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

There is a lot to see and very good food, but you need someone to guide you, it's not the easiest place to get around like the historic center.

“Soulless”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Without a vibrant Jewish culture this area is very empty with businesses trying to cash in on the Jewish culture.
