Reviews

Kazimierz area has some nice atmosphere. The food is truly authentic and tasty and I really enjoyed live concert and the meeting with Holocaust survivor was a real highlight.
Daniel
Kazimierz District is a time machine back to the war... Probably this is why Spielberg chose it for his film. The architecture is unchanged and equally damaged as during the war. However, someone's injected a dose of fun as it's the place to be day or night in Cracow. Nowadays, it is a bohemian district with many pubs and clubs. The bars are amazing. The museums are very modern and interesting. Meeting with Klezmer musicians and Holocaust survivor are extraordinary experience. It's a must see to know.
