kazimerz jewish quarter goholidays1#glavna1

I visited Krakow for the first time in the summer of 1996. Uf has been a long time. At that time, I also looked at the Jewish quarter, which was the most dangerous and disintegrating part of the city. Houses without windows, with boards in place of doors, decaying facades and hollow roads, were the hallmark of the city's workplace, where it once flourished one of the most vital Jewish communities in Central Europe. Except for some outlets on Siroka street (Szeroka Street) there was nothing that would have worked.

Already in the second half of the 90s, the quarter began to develop and revitalize. It was occupied by artists, galleries, owners of new interesting shackles, music clubs, restaurants and interesting stores. At the turn of the millennium, it already had the status of a staggering area of ​​the city, where the most diverse entertainment is beside the city core. In the early years of the new millennium, Kazimerz became the most written part of the city with a diverse range of culture, entertainment, cuisine and accommodation. In addition to the locals, who were more and more withdrawn from the medieval core in Kazimerz, it was also discovered by tourists. Today, we can not imagine a visit to the city of Krakow without the survival of the bohemian Kazimerza in the frenzy.

The center of events has moved from Shiroka street to Plac Nowy Square for decades. I prefer to visit places that are already native peoples. Alchemia on the corner of Placa Nowy and Estery Street. Dark interior, non-standardized equipment - each table and chair is practically different and the relaxed atmosphere is the charm of this bar. Also, the fact that a taxi stops in front of the locus speaks for the visit of this restaurant, where the midnights often go to the last drink before taxi and home.

There is always an interesting visit to Singer Bar. Instead of the tables, you can sit for the legendary Singer sewing machines. At night, it's always full of fun and dancing. I've always wondered how many guests are getting into such a small space. The sewing machine dance is always unforgettable. In the weekends, you come across Balkan and Gypsy music mixed with the hates of the 80s and 90s.

On the corner of Placa Novy, near the intersection with Beera Meiselsa, stands the Pijalka wodki i piwa. It is a kind of retro shop that mimics the equipment and offer of bars from the days of "good old Polish communism". Different types of honey and beer - all at 4 PLN (approximately EUR 1) and some snacks at a price of 8 PLN (about 2 eur), such as tatarsi beefsteak, salad toast or mushrooms, herring in trace ... Oil wrapped with newspaper paper with educational articles from the 8th and waitresses with butterflies or ties are also a trademark of the restaurant, where the Kazimerza exploration begins.

On Široka ulica (Szeroka Street) you can stop for dinner at the restaurant Klezmehr Hoise or Ariel. In addition to traditional Jewish dishes, you can listen to the concert of traditional Klezmehr music during the evenings.

On the parallel streets of Josef, Miodowa and Izaak, new and new outlets grow. Everyone has his own story, his own new concept, so we recommend that you stop during the day and explore for yourself - it definitely finds something interesting for every taste. My recommendation is that when you take a trip to Krakow, you should definitely pay for Kazimerz one afternoon and evening with the night!
