Tempel Synagogue (Synagoga Tempel) Tours

Tempel Synagogue (Synagoga Tempel)
Built in 1862 by Krakow’s progressive Jewish community, the Tempel Synagogue (Synagoga Tempel) is one of seven remaining synagogues in the city’s former Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. The synagogue is known for its gilded, Moorish-style wooden interior and hosts occasional religious services and regular Jewish community events such as concerts.

The Basics
As one of Kazimierz’s most beautiful and active places of Jewish worship, the Tempel Synagogue is a popular inclusion on many Krakow city tours and features on all tours of the city’s old Jewish neighborhood.
 
Let a guide show you the synagogue’s interior and chart its history as part of a private Kazimierz walking tour, or choose the more leisurely alternative of exploring Kazimierz by electric cart. If you’re pressed for time, perhaps consider a shorter electric-cart tour that gives you a panoramic overview of Krakow Old Town and Kazimierz together. Alternatively, cover both on a combo tour that also includes another attraction outside the city, such as the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Tempel Synagogue is a must-see for anyone interested in Krakow’s history and religious and Jewish heritage.
  • See the synagogue as part of a Kazimierz sightseeing tour to get the full lowdown on its history and design.
  • The small admission fee at the door goes toward the synagogue’s upkeep.
  • Male visitors are required to wear yarmulkes—these are provided—while women should have their shoulders covered.
 
How to Get There
The Tempel Synagogue stands at the intersection of Miodowa and Podbrezje in the heart of Krakow’s Kazimierz quarter. From Wawel Castle in the Old Town, follow Stradomska, turn left onto Dietla, and then walk down Bozega Ciala before turning left onto Miodowa—you’ll see the Tempel Synagogue straight ahead. Alternatively, take tram 3, 19, or 69 from Krakow’s train station to Miodowa or bus 610 from Teatr Slowackiego to Starowiślna.
 
When to Get There
The Tempel Synagogue is open Sunday–Thursday from morning to evening and Fridays from midmorning to afternoon—although these times may vary. It’s closed to sightseers on Saturdays and Jewish holidays. With only a trickle of visitors on any given day, there are no crowds to avoid.
 
Highlights of the Tempel Synagogue
Considered the most architecturally interesting of Kazimierz’s synagogues, the Tempel Synagogue was fortunate not to be destroyed by Nazi forces during World War II—the troops used it for stabling and storage. Features to look out for include the gold-leaf-painted woodwork, the marble ark with its decorative cupola, and the stunning stained-glass windows—some of Poland’s best-preserved.
Address: Miodowa 24, Krakow 30-001, Poland

Private guided walking tour of Kazimierz, the former Jewish QuarterHalf-day Tours

Private guided walking tour of Kazimierz, the former Jewish Quarter

The former Jewish quarter in Kazimierz (district of Kraków) is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. Kazimierz (name after Kazimierz the Great, the last Piast and one of the greatest rulers in Polish history) used to be an independent city and from 15th century, a flourishing centre of Jewish religion and culture. The policy of religious tolerance allowed diverse groups of Jewish refugees from all over Europe to come and settle in Poland. Kazimierz became a safe paradise, dominated with the Jews. Today, however very few Jews live in Kazimierz, the district plays role of the artistic centre of Krakow and lots of bars, cafes and Jewish style restaurants help to feel its atmosphere. Your guide will also help you to recognize some of the sights that appeared in the Oscars winning "Schindler's list" movie which was shot in this area.

Krakow Jewish Traces Private TourHalf-day Tours

Krakow Jewish Traces Private Tour

star-5
Before the war, there were 65 thousand Jews living side by side among the inhabitants of Krakow as their neighbours and fellow citizens. Nowadays, the community numbers among its members less than 500 people. But the memory, Jewish traditions, and the unique, historic quarter of Kazimierz remained, surviving the tragic times of war and homicide. Today, the district is alive with multicultural, artistic atmosphere, where each and every alley hides an interesting shop, a café, or one of the seven remaining synagogues, each completely different and special in its character. Among them, you will find, for example, the modest Remuh synagogue – one that is still open and functioning, as well as the ornate, colourful Tempel synagogue, with its characteristic stained-glass windows, where many concerts and cultural events are held. We would like to invite you on this fascinating walk along the paths of Jewish history and traditions, but with the vibe of contemporary atmosphere of Kazimierz.
