Kazimierz

Recommended
Founded in 1335, this district was once an independent city, surrounded by walls. In 1494, by order of King John Albert, the Jews of Kraków settled in the north-eastern part of the city. Over the years, persecuted Jews from other countries flocked here. In the 19C, it was a unique and genuine centre of Jewish culture, suddenly shooting to the forefront of the media with the release of Schindler's List. Among the must-sees are Szeroka Street, Remu'h synagogue and cemetery, the Galicia Jewish museum, and others.

Our reports

Cracow, the real capital of Poland

There’s no escaping the clichés, Cracow is a pure gem, a little Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque jewel. Poland’s former capital city is, beyond question, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978, it is readily compared with Prague, but is a little less touristy.
