Besides being the centre of Kraków’s nightlife, the Kazimierz district in the Old Town of Kraków is one of the best preserved old Jewish quarters in Europe. The restaurants, cafés and bars, all oozing with charm and atmosphere, stand side by side with ancient synagogues. The city’s traditional kosher restaurants pull in steady crowds as young Jewish people from all over the world flock to Kraków to reconnect with their own heritage.
What to see in Kraków
Although Kraków’s entire mediaeval old town is a UNESCO world heritage site, the city centre is also busy with the comings and goings of its residents. Even the impressive Main Square, the largest medieval town square in Europe, is a popular hangout for tourists and also locals.
This is what makes Kraków so special: it is a city where eventful history naturally blends with the busy modern life and where the price level is still highly affordable. Your holiday in Kraków can begin!
