Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

This synagogue is still active (although, 10 zl. are paid to enter) and represents the warm silent breath of the Jewish history of Poland.
The old cemetery nearby is under the restoration and can be see too.

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.

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.

You have to pay and men have to wear Kippah Skullcap. The actual place of worship is very small with a largish cemetery beside it which is undergoing restoration.

Beautifully kept small old synagogue and cemetery. Cheap enough to get in, i think it was only about 15zl which personally I thought was worth the money. If you're interested in the history maybe go with a guide as there is not a lot of information about it there but I was happy enough to look at all the decoration, architecture and memorial walls and amble around the cemetery.

In an area with some amazing synagogues Remuh Synogogue is one of the most beautiful.
Small and very eye catching this synagogue has some serious history attached to it.
On this site from 1553 this synagogue is in the heart of the Jewish Quarter and is most certainly one of the most active synagogues in Krakow with Shabbat services taking place here every Friday.
There is also the famous graveyard complete with its own wailing wall,although most of the cemetery was destroyed by the Nazi's during WW 2 the cemetery has been tidied up and is well worth visiting in its own right.
Remuh Synogogue is really easy to locate on Ul.Szeroka in an area of outstanding historical importance and well worth checking out.

This synagogue and the adjoining cemetery are not large, yet encapsulate some of the rich history of Jewish presence in Krakow.

Ticket 5zl to enter... disappointing. Under reconstruction... A small, decadent room, to be seen from the outside... not much to see, really, at least for my eyes.
The cemetery, well... I have not spent much time there either... I had just spent 1 hours the New Jewish Cemetery already, much bigger and peaceful, and free entrance.
Basically the only other one synagogue I could visit in Kazimierz was the Tempel one... that was much worthier the time and the 10zl.

An old small synagoge right in the heart of Kazimierz Ghetto with a cemetary next to it.
The interior is very interesting with many old artifacts. You can feel the spirit of people who used to come and pray in it.
The atmosphere at the cemetary is very quiet and soothing. Some of the graves look extremely old, with a touch of green moss on them. The grave of Moses Isserles (founder of the Synagoge) is located by the fence.
