This atmospheric historic area of the city is a must see . We liked the area so much we changed accommodation to stay in the area. Though it is an easy walk from the main square or a cheap taxi ride or tram ride if you don't like to walk too much. There are many restaurant choices and great little... More

My husband and I did this walk last week with Jacob. After just visiting the concentration camps, we felt this was the perfect way to complete our holocaust history tour of Poland.

The Jewish District is quite a walk from the Main Square but well worth it to see the rest of the city. It also has some of the best restaurants in Krakow. Worth looking out for Kalanko where we enjoyed a great lunch with excellent amber ale.

The Jewish District is full of history and a must for any visitor to Krakow. Visit zapalianka for a very tasty low cost supper.

I done a walking tour around the area you really need to as you would walk around with knowing what building you where passing or how important it was. Saying that the story of what happen here is shocking but one the the world should know. you have to visit this area
