Jewish District (Kazimierz), Krakow

(6,000+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
In Jewish District (Kazimierz), you'll see trendy cafes and upscale restaurants next to old synagogues and renovated churches. The district was founded in 1335 by King Casimir III on the former island in the middle of the Vistula River. As World War II approached, the area attracted Jews fleeing Krakow due to anti-Semitism. By the 1930s, the area had several dozen synagogues. Although most of these historic buildings disappeared during and after World War II, you can still visit ten active temples, including one located inside the country's oldest building. Check online for special events and maps showing major attractions in the district.
