Today is probably the most complete day of the trip to Krakow in 5 days, since tomorrow we will visit the city's Jewish Quarter, one of the most interesting and also most touristic neighborhoods, and later in the afternoon visit the Salt Mines from Krakow, one of the best tours and excursions from Krakow in which we will discover a part of this incredible network of more than 300 kilometers of galleries, breathtakingly decorated rooms and lakes that make these spectacular Salt Mines possibly one of the most tourist and visited places from Poland.
This is why we decided to start the day at a fairly early hour, not as much as yesterday that we went to visit Auschwitz from Krakow, but it does allow us to have a morning wide enough to be able to see everything we have on today's itinerary .
So after we wake up at six in the morning, as usual and after having a coffee, we go down to the breakfast room of the Logos hotel, where when it is approximately 8:30 in the morning we leave again to the streets of the city, heading directly to the Jewish quarter of Krakow.
Visit the Jewish quarter of Krakow
Today's tour of the Jewish Quarter of Krakow or Kazimierz will take us to places like the Old Synagogue, the Remuh Synagogue, the Tempel Synagogue, the Isaac Synagogue, the Kupa Synagogue, the Wysoka Synagogue, the Nowy Square and the Basilica of the Corpus Cristi, in addition to enjoying a pleasant walk through one of the most essential areas of Krakow.
The hotel we are staying in these days in Krakow is about 2 kilometers from the Jewish quarter you can go by public transport, we decided to walk to discover in this way that part of Krakow that we did not see in the tour of Krakow in a day a couple of days ago.
It does not take more than 15 or 20 minutes to get to Nowy Square, the most tourist and most important square in this area of Krakow, which we have to say that at this time of day is not very lively, since it is too early and there is no no open position, so after taking some photos we decided that we will try to return throughout the day to see it with some more atmosphere.
After this brief stop, we continue on a tour of today with a brief return of recognition in the area, and then follow our itinerary planned by the Jewish Quarter, heading to the first visit we will make of the day, which how could it be otherwise , is a synagogue.
A good option to learn more about the history of this neighborhood is to book this free tour of the Jewish neighborhood with a guide in Spanish. Free!
In Krakow, of the 7 synagogues that we can find in Kazimierz or the Jewish district of Krakow, there are only 6 that can be visited. In our case we will only visit the interior of 2, the Old Synagogue and the Remuh Synagogue, two of the most touristy.
The Tempel Synagogue, which we do not visit inside, since the idea is to visit only two of the nine we have in the planning.
This neo-Renaissance synagogue was built in the 19th century, making it the most current synagogue that we can find in Krakow.
