“Colourful and welcoming”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The Jewish District hosts a number of hotels, cafes and restaurants to provide food for the body as well as the synagogues and bookstores providing food for the soul. Well worth visiting.

“Kazimierz”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

On our last day, with the temperature at 8 degrees, which was amazing as it was -4 the day before, we decided to walk from our apartments through the market square and on to Kazimierz. We loved the walk but were left wondering what was so fantastic....we visited a synagogue, which was beautiful, but apart from that found that the district was quite run down....

“Jewish District”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

It's just a few block of houses, not that special. Maybe in summer there is more to do and see on the streets.
