    As part of the Jewish district walking tour we ended up in this square. Without proper guidance one can miss the square and its importance.  more »

    The square commemorates the drama of life in the ghetto through huge chairs placed on the ground. Simple but exciting and impactful.

    Should you do a Krakow city tour, this will likely be one of the stops. It's a lovely square, and many people sit and enjoy the sun there or visit the many historical locations nearby, but it has a very sad history and you will come away feeling moved and emotional. The chairs symbolise the many people that died or were killed during WW2. The smaller chairs are for the children that died, each one representing a certain number of individuals. Go with a guide, the history is worth hearing. Schindler's Factory, from Schindler's List fame, is not far away.

    Seeing the meaning behind each chair statue it's quite a freaky place! Makes you think! Try to find time to visit when it's not too busy with locals using the sculptures as benches.

    This is one of those places that if you visit Krakow you should try to visit beautiful square with a very moving and tragic history

    Strange memorial. Without prior knowledge it would be difficult to know what the exhibition represents.

    Sad place but a must see,. Simple and beautiful homage.

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.
