  • Probably one of my top three favorite Jewish cemeteries in Europe.
  • The old, beautiful graveyard, but very sloppy. There are a few "new" graves. It was here that buried are members of the deaths of the Jewish community in Krakow, as well as lay people. You can go and watch, put a stone on the grave.
