Could walk for many more days around this cool district, hopping from bar to restaurant to coffee shop. Historically fascinating with great faded beauty. Some really great hole-in-the-wall places with friendly relaxed people. Will be coming back!

The Jewish museum is a must place to visit, full of great information, the information inside gives you a real understanding of what really happened and will tie in with what you have seen if you visited Auschwitz and Birkenau

The Jewish district is full of culture and Polish history, I recommend a guided tour around the district as you can learn some interesting, very moving history about the region. There are lots of restaurants & nightlife, despite the fact that at night the area can appear quite rough, everyone is fairly friendly!

Came here after visiting the Schindler museum as it's only a short walk away it has some of the old buildings and streets from WW2 and used in the film schindlers list so after a walk round we came across a really nice place to eat which was inexpensive but was top quality and would cost so much more in...

The Jewish District is a very preserved area, and looks better kept than other parts of Krakow. The bars and cafes all looked very nice and niche. Plac Nowy flea market was disappointing but we did go quite late in the day

This is definetly worth a visit and does really strike you, the plaques and information around staying with you. There are free guided tours all around the quarter and I recommend you join a group, while there are lots of boards of information around they are very informative. However avoid the larger eateries, the staff are incredibly rude, especially if... More
