Jewish District Krakow
The streets of Krakow are not short on fascinating attractions and amongst the most interesting is the Jewish District. That was certainly the opinion of voters in the recent top attraction contest run by Radisson Blu. They chose the Jewish Quarter as the top must-see attraction in the vicinity of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Krakow.
There are many reasons why this was the case. Krakow has some incredible historical sites, such as the magnificent castle on Wawel Hill, but the Jewish District has a special place in the city. It is an intriguing location and certainly worth a visit.

With a range of interesting independent shops and businesses, and a thriving café culture, there is a great buzz to the Jewish District in Krakow. The area has a history that stretches back to 1335 and has been a significant area ever since, particularly amongst the Jewish community.
The area suffered during the Second World War but ultimately the spirit of the region survived this dark time and now thousands from around the world are drawn to the Jewish District. Each year the beguiling streets come alive with the Jewish Culture Festival, which welcomes people of all faiths.
