  • It is worth a visit (free for teachers and journalists). You must not cover the head with a kipa, because it is not a place of worship. Many photographs and how they lived in the pre-WWII Jewish Krakow.

  • Nice place to visit and know more about history and culture of Jews in Krakow. Is a small museum, but I recommend it. You need to pay an entrance fee.

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
