The Isaac Synagogue, built in the early Judaic-Baroque style, was opened in 1644, and was a gift to the city from a wealthy Jew, Izaak Jakubowicz. The design is endowed with decorative arabesques and arches, yet retains a sober linearity, especially within. There is much to admire, not least the fragments of original wall scriptures. A shop inside sells kosher food, sweets, Jewish calendars and other items, and around the back you'll find Szalom Falafel - Kraków's only kosher fast food restaurant (ul. Jakuba 21; open 10:00 - 21:30; Fri 10:00 - 16:30; closed Sat).
