  • A place to remember some history but that perhaps it is interesting especially for fans of the genre. We met by chance, strolling through the neighborhood gate closed and seen only from the outside.

  • I guess cemeteries are never a happy or exciting place, but this one has an extra sad element to it due to the history of the local Jews. Would recommend allocating about 30 minutes for the visit. 
  • It is a great and sad experience of visiting the "new" Jewish cemetery in Krakow. Great because it's a very different way the Jews keep have a very different way to bury their dead on. Different is also their tradition of putting stones on the grave site. Sad to see how grave the seats is due, because there are no descendants to maintain them. Also sad to see how many tombstones are destroyed by the Germans during the 2. During World War II. Definitely worth a visit. For men: remember to cover your head with a hat or yarmulke. Skullcap can be rented on site.
