Part of history and place for reflection and learning. Short visit followed by access to Jewish cemetery ..

This is quite an old (over 450 years old) and small synagogue, located next to the old Jewish cemetery. While it's not so impressive, you could spare a couple of minutes there, while you're in the Jewish quarter.

This is one of the oldest synagogues in Krakow. Its adjacent cemetery is from 1535 and it well worth a visit. Entrance is 10 zloty.

I visited the Remuh Synagogue in December 2017 after visiting the Old Synagogue and the High Synagogue during a walk in the Jewish section of Kazimierz. The Remuh Synagogue is very small but very interesting. There is not that much room to walk around inside...More

Interesting place, nothing amazing thought. Cemetery is fully pre-war Jewish one, which can be observed.

Beautiful to visit with interesting cemetery at back. So warm inside, you can just sit and contemplate for awhile before moving on. 10 PLN feel to enter.

This is a small but homely place to visit. Well preserved and gives a good insight to the faith. Make sure you visit the cemetery around the side, which is quite unusual.
