Just the other side of the railway through an underpass you find the cemetery. Paths lead you through a setting that looks unreal as headstones disappear under ivy creating a scene that once you ponder why is thought provoking. There are particular graves you are directed to and the dates vary significantly as you wonder around. Grave markers are placed in the wall from the 1950s renovation after the destruction during WW2. There are moments of total silence punctuated by birdsong that make this a place to stand and stare and contemplate it all. Few graves are tended which makes it even more poignant.

This cemetery includes fragments of headstones, family graves, and a Memorial to Holocaust victims. It is larger than you would think, but pathways lead you throughout. Many plants make it serene in this city setting.

This is a newer (although certainly not new) Jewish cemetery dating back to the early 19th century. It contains much history and is worth a visit.

Walking around the eclectic Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz District ) my twin brother Stephen and I passed the New Jewish Cemetery .
This is such a poignant and sad cemetery to view ,it's a reminder of the horrors that occurred here during the German Army occupation of World War Two ,although there's lots of tombstones here there's also broken tombstones obviously deliberately damaged by the occupying forces , I found the cemetery very moving especially knowing the history of the area and the brutalities committed here during World War Two,it's most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the Jewish Quarter and easy to locate along Miodowa.

Not far of the beaten path. Place was amazing and a must see. It doesn’t take much time to pay your respects. Recommend a quick see.

Incredible place to walk around. The place itself is so different (I’m catholic ) but the sense of history descends and weights heavy upon your conscientious

Our next stop was the new Jewish cemetery. This was a badly maintained and very overgrown collection of tombs and gravestones and some memorials for the Jews of Krakow. Some were current but most were broken by the Germans and then relocated here, more as a testimony to the annihilation of a culture than as a place to rest in peace. Again, without Google we wouldn't have found the place as there were no signs until we actually arrived.

This expansive cemetery was established in 1800. It was the burial ground for many of Kraków's distinguished Jews in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Today there are an estimated 10,000 tombstones inside which many of them are very much neglected. It is a peaceful place but needs some more care.

Visited after a walk around the Old Jewish Quarter. There is a huge memorial to the right of the main gates to the Jews who very sadly / tragically lost their lives during the 2nd World War. Many very old head stones with an odd newer one set amongst them. Some areas not really easily accessible so best to keep to the paths. Very thought provoking and eerie.

We went to New Jewish Cemetery in Kraków. Appalling! The Jewish community should be ashamed of themselves! For very obvious & painful reasons this is a cemetery of international importance & international interest but it’s neglected. Not overgrown. NEGLECTED!!
During our visit there were many Hasidic ‘pilgrims’ racing around (I know it’s their way) ticking off individual graves & one can only feel that if they put similar effort into ensuring a respectful maintenance of the cemetery it would be time well spent.
Your people deserve better from you!!
