About Stara Synagoga, Krakow
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.

Stara Synagoga, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review
Alta Shul in Yiddish, Jewish Gem from fifteenth century. Go Poland for letting our culture grow with all the beautiful teachings that took place here. It feels magical to enter this place.
I love the way it's designed, interesting that it is below the normal level of the road. I guess it's very old, hence the name. A worthwhile visit. Plenty of history and culture facts guaranteed.
There's a walled-in cemetery. The stones look to be 19th and early 20th century. It's odd that it should have escaped the attentions of the Germans.
Worth a visit if you are in Krakow. You will probably spend about an hour there and entry costs 10 zloty.
Beautiful temple with a great description of Jewish life and faith.
