The Remuh Synagogue was built in the 16thcentury. It is the smallest of historic synagogues in the Kazimierz district in Krakow.
During the Holocaust, the synagogue served as a storehouse of firefighting equipment, but it was not destroyed. In 1957 it underwent a major restoration that reestablished much of the pre-war appearance of the interior.

The Remuh Cemetery is next to the Synagogue. There is no real entrance ticket, but a sort of mandatory donation for the restoration, which includes both the visit to the synagogue and to the cemetery.

Located along arguably the most beautiful street in the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) is this great looking synagogue which is always a joy to view.
Remuh Synagogue was built on the site of a previous synagogue destroyed by fire in 1557 ,named in honour of Rabbi Moses Isserles who went by the acronym of ReMu which was pronounced Remuh ,its such a wonderful synagogue to view but what I find more heart warming is the fact it's still here considering the horrors that occurred in Krakow and in particular the Jewish Quarter during the German Army occupation of World War Two when nearly all vestiges of the Jewish faith were obliterated, just love to view this building, its easy to locate along Ulica Szeroka and most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

The cemetery has been reconstructed somewhat and has many prominent members of the community buried here. The synagogue is an interesting building, although small.

This is a smallish synagogue, located at the entrance to the Jewish quarter. Next to it, there's a small cemetery with some old Jewish tombstones.

I love nothing better than visiting the wonderful Jewish Quarter ,love to view the synagogues here ,one of the most famous is the Remuh Synagogue .
Constructed on the spot of a previous synagogue destroyed in 1557 by fire and named in honour of Rabbi Moses Isserles who's acronym was ReMa pronounced Ramuh ,this is one of several synagogues in the area what I find fascinating about viewing this synagogue is that it survived the German Army occupation of World War Two when nearly all vestiges of the Jewish faith were more or less obliterated ,this synagogue was looted by the Nazi's and then used to store firefighting equipment but by a miracle survived the terrors of those dark days,it's a beautiful synagogue to check out if you're in the Kazimierz District and easy to locate along Ulica Szeroka.

It is a small synagoga in the old Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz.
The synagoga is small but it deserves to be seen for the history. Don't miss the cemetery beside.

The Remuh Synagogue is a unique complex of Jewish architecture and religious art dating back to the mid-16th century, functioning as a centre of the religious life of Jews in today's Kraków.
Currently it is the only prayer house regularly open for Jews in Kraków, which is why its interior retains a unique atmosphere and is functionally and formally coherent, with properties that cannot be found in any other synagogue in Kraków. Do not forget to visit Old cemetery which is just near. It is very interesting place.
