Sightseeing

Judaica Foundation (Centre for Jewish Culture)

Located inside a former Jewish prayer house which was in operation from the 1880s up until WWII, this building was saved from ruin, renovated, and opened as a Jewish cultural centre in 1993. Today it subsists on a steady diet of lectures, concerts, exhibits, film screenings and other events that reflect Jewish life in Poland past and present. In the cellar you'll find an antique store and bookshop full of Judaica, while the ground floor hosts the Sara Cafe & Bar, whose small rooftop garden (open April to October) is one of Kazimierz's best-kept secrets.
