This district is full of Jewish history in Krakow. Many synagogues and other Jewish places mark the community.

This area is very quaint, the buildings are not as pristine as those in the main square but to me they have a lot more character. We did the yellow umbrella free tour here which was fascinating and helped explain how the area had developed.

This area offered better value for money in relation to accommodation compared to the old town. A short walk to the old town, and many other sights. A nice area with excellent restaurants and lots to see.
