The 13th century merchants' town is home to Europe's largest market square and offers numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with magnificent interiors, 14th century fortifications, ancient synagogues, Jagiellonian University and the Gothic cathedral where the kings of Poland were buried.
Encircling the Old Town district, this 14th-century gate and its four towers are the remnants of the city's fortifications, most of which were destroyed at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
This small Renaissance synagogue (circa 1557) is named after the famous writer and philosopher Moses Isserles (aka Rabbi Remu'h) and still holds regular services for the small Jewish community in the city.
Decorated with vibrant colors and Stanislaw Wyspianski’s famous stained glass window “God the Father.”
