Kazimierz (Jewish District) Tours

Krakow’s Jewish Quarter—the Kazimierz—has been the heart of the city’s Jewish community since medieval times. Traces of its turbulent past remain, but today it’s reinvented itself as a thriving cultural hub, where historic synagogues and museums sit side by side with art galleries, cocktail bars, bold street art, and vintage boutiques.
 
The Basics
A sightseeing tour of Krakow isn’t complete without a visit to the former Jewish district, and the best way to explore Kazimierz is on foot. Learn more about Krakow’s Jewish history and visit filming locations from Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning Schindler's List on a guided walking tour, join a food tasting tour and sample the quarter’s famous street food, or explore by Segway, bike, or in a classic Trabant car.
 
For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour, visit independently as part of a hop-on hop-off bus tour, or choose a tour that includes other attractions, such as Wawel Hill, Wieliczka Salt Mine, or Oskar Schindler’s Factory.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Tourist Information Center on Jozefa Street offers maps of Kazimierz and advice on exploring the area.
  • Most of the main attractions of Kazimierz are wheelchair accessible, but some of the cobblestone lanes and squares might be tricky to navigate.
  • If visiting during the cold winter months, dress appropriately with boots, hats, and gloves to help keep you warm.
 
How to Get There
Kazimierz is located within the Historic Centre of Krakow, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the north bank of the Vistula River, opposite the Podgórze neighborhood. It’s possible to walk from the Old Town (around a 15- to 20-minute walk), or else the closest tram stations are Miodowa and Stradom. The closest train station is Kraków Zabłocie on the south bank of the river.
 
When to Get There
Kazimierz is atmospheric both by day and night, and many visitors opt to return in the evening hours to experience the nightlife. The district is at its busiest during the peak summer season, but other popular times to visit are during the holidays, when it hosts one of Krakow’s most popular Christmas markets, or in June for the annual Jewish Culture Festival.
 
A Walking Tour of Kazimierz
The many historic landmarks, shops, and bars of Kazimierz are easily explored on foot, starting with a stroll down Szeroka Street, where you’ll find the Remuh Synagogue, the Remuh Jewish Cemetery, and the Old Synagogue. Nearby, pay a visit to the 19th-century Tempel Synagogue, the Galicia Museum, and New Square (Plac Nowy), which hosts a lively weekend market and is just a couple of blocks from the magnificent Corpus Christi Church.
