"The old sinagogue in Kazimierz" Old Synagogue - Stara Synagoga - Kazimierz Tip by Raimix


Krakow?s Old Synagogue is one of the oldest in Europe. For long period it was central sinagogue for Jewish quarter of Krakow. It is interesting fact, that Jewish quarter long time ago was like a another town, not associated with Krakow, but later it became just like a suburb of Krakow.

This sinagogue was built in 14th century, but later rebiult in 16th century. Interior remained gothic. Thats a pity, that at Second World War nazis ruined this sinagogue, but later it was rebuilt. Now it houses a museum of Jewish culture.

The Jewish Museum is open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Address: 24 Szeroka street
Directions: Kazimierz suburb.
