Polish friends recommended us to go Kazimierz. It is a silent and cool place with cafes and restaurants. We enjoyed the atmosphere of it. It is near to the old town

This area has lots of history but you need to take an organised tour, either walking or on one of the little golf cart tours to find things and have them explained. Otherwise you can see some things but have no idea of their significance.

Our Hotel was here so we had great local food and amazing walks very friendly area. A long walk to centre of town but lots to see along the way. A lot of difference between the Jewish area and the centre but worth the visit

The square is worth a visit, outside restaurants, Synagogues and a excellent museum which will take up a few hours of the day.

Our hotel was in this area. Lots to see and do in the area, with fabulous resturants, quaint cafes and bars. Great bakery open at 5.30 am, kantors and atms in area but know the rate before you change. Felt safe to walk around on your own. Lots of history in this area worth a guided tour. More old worldly...

Our first day in Krakow we did a personalized golf cart tour, including the Jewish Quarter, the former Jewish Ghetto, and Schindler's factory. We were mesmerized with the Jewish Quarter and spent the second day getting more acquainted and revisiting some of the historic sites. We ate a breakfast buffet at Kolanko No 6 and toured the Remuh Synagogue and... More

I thought there would be more to see here? There arrears to be some nice cafe bars - we did not eat here though as we had eaten in Old Town. Not many shops. An out door "market" type area.
