Full description
Enjoy entrance to one of Krakow's most important sites. For centuries, the followers of Judaism co-existed with Poles in peace, Christian churches were adjacent to the synagogues, children played together in the streets, and those of Jewish faith held important positions on the city board. This state was completely destroyed during World War II. However, today, when Kazimierz has its renaissance, and Jewish culture revives through festivals, museums, and exhibitions, you can see a place that is a symbol of the Jewish lifestyle in Krakow.

Discover the Old Synagogue's history of Jewish culture. In the main hall, marvel at a parchment scroll with the text of the Torah, embroidered curtains of the Ark, a presentation of the cycle of the most important holidays of the Jewish calendar, and much more. In the south hall, learn about family and private life, see exhibits related to compliance with traditional dietary regulations in a Jewish home, everyday prayer, and the life cycle of the individual from birth to death.
