  • The old synagogue is a place of interesting not only for people of the Jewish religion, but for all who want to learn a bit of history. How exposure exhibits accessible and transparent. The price of the entrance ticket very affordable. We visited national Kazimierz with the guide that in the synagogue also shared their knowledge.

  • It is the first synagogue, since had a place to pray separately from women, also there is a momuneto reminder to victims of the nazis, who collaborated with the Jews.

  • Worth a visit if you are in Krakow. You will probably spend about an hour there and entry costs 10 zloty. There is not currently much mention of women's contribution to Jewish life in the city though.
  • Oldest and largest Synagogue in Kraków. Unfortunately, it was heavily damaged during WW2, and was not really able to rebuid its exposition. Museum workers are helpful and friendly. Still, most tourist choose Remuh Synagogue.
  • Very informing and beautiful old synagogue turned into a museum. Bilingual Polish-English information plates and well-equipped exhibition.
  • Very educational with some lovely artifacts on exhibit
  • Alta Shul in Yiddish, Jewish Gem from fifteenth century. Go Poland for letting our culture grow with all the beautiful teachings that took place here. It feels magical to enter this place.
