Located in the Jewish district, the Plac Nowy (New Square) was once the cultural hub of Polish Jews. Krakow has had a sizeable Jewish population since the 15th century. Post-war the square and the neighbourhood were slowly reclaimed by the Jewish community and one can now see Hebrew signs and the Star of David on many buildings. The square, a commercial hub since its establishment now holds a flea market and many permanent establishments in the building lining it. Beautiful and historic buildings, small museums, synagogues, cemeteries, shops and antique sellers, cafes and pubs are dotted around the square and its surrounding areas. So sit with a beer or a coffee and enjoy the street life or take a walk and discover for yourself life in the Jewish district.
