Booked tour of Jewish Quarter through our hotel - Historian who was very knowledgable (forget his name) gave us a guided tour of Jewish district and ghetto. Was shown where the film Schindler s List was filmed. Must see!

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

We stayed in Kazimierz rather than the Old Town and were very glad we did. It's full of old Krakow atmosphere, lots of great little bars and restaurants. Recommended.

This was our absolute favourite place although we loved all of Krakow. It was beautiful, quirky, sad in places and looked a bit tatty in others. But it looked like they're really trying to sort that out and it doesn't take away from the great feeling of the place. We loved plac Nowy and the streets off it. There were... More
