The tour was from the Main Market Square all the way to Schindler's Factory, lots of walking but interesting history and locations, too. Wish we had more time to spend an evening in the Jewish quarter for a meal and music!

Wander around and get to feel the area. We really wanted to sit and enjoy traditional cake in a coffee shop but didn't find one, a map may have helped. The museum was very interesting detailing Jewish traditions and beliefs in a bright and welcoming building. We could have spent longer there as there was more to be seen and experienced.our visit didn't do the area justice.

Kazimierz is an interesting place to simply walk around, take your time and take in the area the Jews populated before and after WWII and still do. There is a lot to learn. Also visit the old cemetery the German's tried to destroy.

The old Jewish quarter is still relatively self contained and there's several synagogues, graveyards, museums and memorial gardens which are all open the general public. It's an interesting area to explore for a few hours and gives you a good sense of the grim history that the city has experienced.

Lovely safe area with lots of history. Do visit the Old Synagogue and St. Catherine's Church. Spend a day just walking around and visiting the many churches, cemeteries and enjoy some delicious food in the many cafes and restaurants.
