Just went to Tarnow for the day, by train from Krakow (takes about an hour). Really enjoyed the visit, the city dates back to the 12th century - the busy street ul. Krakowska runs from the station, rising gently to the Rynek. At a lower level, ul. Walowa forms a semi-circle around the Rynek - closed to traffic, it's a pleasure to walk along, enjoy the shops and admire the fine architecture
Among the things to see are the Cathedral (just off the Rynek), which dates back to the 14th. century; The Town Hall and Regional Museum in the Rynek (pictured here); the Jewish cemetery on ul. Nowodabrowska which dates back to the 17th. century; the Ethnographic Museum on ul. Krakowska has a collection of exhibits relating to Gypsy / Romany culture; the 17th century Jewish synagogue off ul. Zydowska was destroyed by the Nazis in September, 1939 and only the brick bimah is left to see.
There is a helpful tourist office in the Rynek.
One point - most of the museums are closed on Mondays.
The Cathedral dates back to the 14th. century although a lot of rebuilding was done in the 1890's. Should you be... more travel advice
