“Just interesting...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

May be I was unlucky. The site was undergoing repairs. Despite some nice little restaurants isn't a wonder . I was told that it was more a place for nightlife than to a historic or cultural visit

“A walk in history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

A pleasant place to explore on foot, taking in the atmosphere of this lovely area and putting some of the contexts onto history presented elsewhere in museums.

“Active”

Busy, busy, busy, again this part of the town is vibrant, cafes, synogoges, the history of Krakow to be seen. Read about the area before you go and understand it

“I was quite surprised”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

When I traveled to the Jewish district, which I was told it had many synagogues still operating. I was in for a surprise, as the area was rundown, but that was what I felt about the entire city. Since it was over 70 years since world war II I. would've thought that this area would have been revived. The people seemed happy enough but then they are no longer under communism and this could be the reason. I would recommend going to the city but do not expect to see a 21st-century village.
Under communist regime, everything was gray and dark, and the city seems to still be in it. . The inside of their homes, maybe elegant, but the outside of the buildings need to be updated in my opinion.

“historical charm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

For me, the best part of the city. Many areas still untouched by modern-day life....and, to be honest, all the better for it!
