There is a number of historic landmarks in its vicinity, such as the St. Mary's Basilica (Kościół Mariacki), the Church of St. Wojciech (St. Adalbert's), and the Church of St. Barbara, as well as other national treasures. At the center of the plaza and surrounded by kamienice (row houses) and noble residences, stands the Renaissance cloth hall Sukiennice. Kazimierz is the district south of the Old Town and was the center of Jewish life in Kraków for over 500 years before being systematically destroyed during World War II.

The tour through the Kazimierz district of Kraków was carried out by a very knowledgeable and funny tour guide. The guide had a very good knowledge of German and a very high level of knowledge in relation to the history of Krakow. The tour not only gave us an insight into the history of Krakow, but also into the cultural aspects of Judaism. The expectations of the tour were definitely exceeded and I can recommend it to anyone who is also interested in getting to know Krakow outside of the tourist hotspots.
