Trip to Cracow

2nd October 2014


Today I was in Cracow with my international friends.  Cracow is the city of Polish kings and bishops and centre of culture and art, a universioty centre and a magic place. Cracow is the ancient city of Poland.

We started our trip in the Jewish Quarter in Kazimierz the district located south of the Old City. Jewish people had started to arrive in Cracow in the second half of the 12th century.


Typical houses in Jewish Quarter which were built before WWII

















The Old Synagogue

Enjoy the trip


Thanks for visiting

  4. The area seems to be quite well preserved. Not everything has to be clean and perfect. Pity about the weather.
