Krakow: Jewish Quarter Walk

Once you explore the Old Town in Krakow, you should consider visiting the best preserved Jewish district in Europe – Kazimierz. It is named after the King Casimir the Great who founded it for his beloved Esther. In the past it used to be a separate, independent town until the late Middle Ages. Today, it is an artistic area especially known for its culture life with cozy cafes, bars, restaurants with delicious cuisine, galleries and antique shops but it also a place with impressive historical value. During this tour you will have the chance to see some of the oldest Jewish sacred buildings in the country – the grave of a famous Rabbi that the Nazis did not tear down, a synagogue with stained-glass (which is uncommon) and the family home of Helena Rubinstein – the founder of Rubinstein cosmetics. You can also visit the Old and Remuh synagogues, the oldest Jewish cemetery from the 16th century and sites from Steve Spielberg’s film – Schindler’s List. Walking along these narrow streets you will feel a special atmosphere as if you would be in a different town. If there is enough time, you definitely should try the best street food in town “zapiekanki” – at the Nowy Square. We guarantee that there are many secrets of this unique district to discover and you cannot leave Krakow without visiting Kazimierz.
