Overview of Old Synagogue
The country's oldest surviving synagogue is a highly important religious landmark. Originally built in the fifteenth century and then reconstructed in the second half of the 16th century, the building has the architectural style known as the Polish Fortress Synagogue, with a Gothic interior. Most of its heritage, including relics and artwork, were looted by the Germans during World War II. It was briefly used as a place to store ammunition. It is known that 30 Poles were infamously executed here. Today it functions as a part of the Krakow History Museum. Unexpectedly, the exhibits here do not deal with the invasion. Rather, they focus on universal themes such as life, lifestyle and death. Bits and pieces of the Jewish heritage of this historic district are also on display. Sometimes there are temporary exhibitions. Check the museum calendar of upcoming events.
