I included this in my tour of the Jewish area of Krakow. I was charged 5 zloty to enter. This is a place of worship so be aware. It is a small building and doesn't take long to go around but you can go up in the gallery as well.
I love visiting Krakow and in particular the Kazimierz District ( Jewish Quarter ) to view the amazing faded architecture and the magnificent nightlife.

Restored and looking good - great acoustics - interesting displays - a great pity we could not get to one go their Klezmer Concerts
On Fri evening the place was over crowded, on Shabbat morning, almost empty. Acoustics are terrible, painfully noisy. Place dominated by Chabad, take it or leave it. On the walls you can see remainders of the original deco which is interesting. Otherwise, the place is not in very good shape.

There were hundreds of worshippers both Friday night and saturday morning. It is administered by the Chabad organization. Be sure to note the painting of Hebrew passages on the walls. It is a good-sized complex and well... 更多
A friend told me about trying to catch a Klezmer music show at the historic Issac Synagogue. I was lucky enough to be in Krakow when the Tempero Band was playing. While there are other Klezmer music shows at restaurants or other venues, I would highly recommend trying to catch the Tempero Band (or another Klezmer music group) playing in... 更多
