Starting with the negative - room was up in the gods, two single beds, both pushed up against a wall. The bedcover on one was torn and there were no headboards. However, the beds were comfy. The room was generally tired and in need of an update. The towels were clean but not very soft. Now the positive - excellent... More

Well worth a visit to this diverse region of Krakow. Not only is it of tremendous historical interest, but the restaurants and bars are quite different to the main square. Some great nightlife with a younger clientele, compared to the main square. We enjoyed both on our 4 day family trip.

If you're visiting Krakow, then go and see the Market Square and take in all the tourist attractions and lovely bars and restaurants. But if you want a good nightout at some amazing bars and restaurants with individual character and live music....then this is the district for you. Absolutely beautiful.

Walked through the streets in this Jewish district, it was market day so the central square was full of second hand clothes - in poor condition. Visited the Jewish centre and Old Synagogue, which were of interest. It did not live up to its guide book descriptions or reputation in my opinion.

We stayed in this area on a visit last year and returned again this year. It's a lovely place to stay with lots to see and do and plenty of nice places to eat and bars. Plac Nowy of an evening is bustling with an array of bars and a huge mix of people, not quite as many tourists as... More

As a solo traveler and history lover, this was my favorite district to visit during my time in Krakow. The history is rich and alive within the architecture of Kazimierz. I took a free walking tour of the Jewish District and loved it. The food, drinks, and vendors are amazing. I bought some of my favorite art work in Kazimierz.... More

This tour was enlightening as to the persecution of the Polish folk in light of the Jews. History is alive and the tour although not elegant or grandiose it gave an honest look at how power was abused and mistreatment of human life was not just cowed down to. The Polish people have pride and power. The remnants are revered... More

We visited Kazimierz mostly because of restaurants and pubs. Architecture and atmosphere is different than in Old Town. In our opinion, Old Town is much better for sightseeing and walking. Nevertheless, you should visit this part of town, especially because of great pubs (especially Omerta Pub), as well as the best ice-cream I've ever tried (GoodLood - salty caramel).

The Old Jewish Cemetery fascinating, sad and moving. There are pieces of old gravestones from graves destroyed by the nazis and very moving are the plaques describing the impact the nazi extermination had on individual families. Not enjoyable but a must see. We went around the time of Passover so there was restricted opening.

We went through Kazimierz as part of our Free Walking Tour of the Jewish Quarter. Although we only entered the Chabad run Jacob Synagogue, there was a lot of information about where to go in our own time. Jewish history, restaurants, night life.
