Continuing the Jewish theme, we will proceed to Kazimierz, a place named after the King who gave the first charter to the Jews to settle in Poland. It is a former Jewish district, and in the center of it is the Sheroka (Wide) street and square.
Here you will find the famous Rema Synagogue and the old Jewish cemetery containing graves from 15th century. The old synagogue was built just next to the old Kazimierz city walls.
Following the Ester Street will bring you to the new market square. Here is a big flea market, where you can buy nice souvenirs, find a fresh fruit basket, or eat a famous Krakow sandwich – zapiekanki. Zapiekanki, a local favorite – is an open-faced sandwich made of half of a baguette or other long roll of bread, topped with sautéed white mushrooms, cheese, and other ingredients, then toasted until the cheese melts.
