Jewish Quarter, Krakow, Poland

The Jewish Quarter in Krakow is one of the most moving places I've been (second to Anne Frank's house).

This map is focused on the Old Synagogue. Zoom out and scroll slightly to the North-North West and you'll see the Remuh Jewish Cemetery.

While their web site says there "has also been a reawakening in the importance of Jewish history and culture," it didn't feel like that to me. It felt like a place that had had it's soul killed, eerilly still and hollow.
