Remuh Synagogue

30 min 40 Szeroka Street, Kraków, 31-053

Information

It is the only active synagogue in Krakow. The synagogue is situated in the old Jewish Kraków district – Kazimierz, at 40 Szeroka Street. The building was erected in the Renaissance style. It is the only synagogue in the city which has regular religious services and it is the second oldest synagogue in Kraków. Remuh with its cemetery are a unique Jewish, architecture complex from the 16th century. The construction of the synagogue started in 1558 in the place of a former wooden building which had burned. The building was rebuilt many times. Unfortunately, during World War II the synagogue was deeply devastated and its interior design was stolen. After the war it was reopened for the believers and from time to time some conservation works are performed. At adjoining Jewish cemetery there are precious Matzewahs from the 16th and 18th century. Remuh synagogue and cemetery cannot be omitted while visiting Kraków’s Kazimierz district.
