A unique cafe and community centre located in Kazimierz, the Cracow district, run by the Jewish Culture Festival. Cheder is a place where you can enjoy wonderful coffee brewed in finjan (an original Israeli crucible) and aromatic tea, and, what is more, all visitors can taste the best snacks inspired by Middle Eastern cuisine.

CRACOW FOR THE FEARLESS
Not for the faint-hearted, Lost Soul Alley is an interactive museum dedicated to the basic human emotion, fear. It's still great fun and a big hit with visitors. For souvenir shopping, the area around Rynek Główny square is recommended.
The Ice City
The Ice City on the Central Square traditionally opens by the end of December, and attracts thousands of visitors from Ekaterinburg and beyond. The best sculptors carve their masterpieces from huge ice cubes, and many attractions are installed - including ice slides. 2019 marks 140 years since the birth of the Ural writer Bazhov, which is why the main theme for the New Yearare are his tales. The grand opening is 28 December and it will go on until 20 January.
For over 600 years, a bugle call, delivered from the tower of St. Mary's Church, has marked the passing of every hour, a custom entirely unique to Cracow. Only four female portraits by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci exist worldwide and the most beautiful of them – Lady with an Ermine hangs in Cracow for all to admire.
THE KAZIMIERZ DISTRICT
Cracow is characterised by numerous Jewish buildings. Thanks to the film Schindler's List (and the fact that the Enamel factory has been opened to the public) the Kazimierz Jewish quarter has been extensively renovated. Numerous tours are available on which you can learn about the history and inhabitants of the quarter.
No visit would be complete without a tour of the churches of Cracow, which illustrate how the city has developed over the centuries. Don't miss the Franciscan Church, the Wawel Cathedral or the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul.
If you have time for a day trip out of Cracow, take a tour of the Wieliczka Salt Mines, where you'll find chambers carved out of rock salt, eerie underground salt lakes, unique salt sculptures and a sumptuous network of rooms. Explore 3 km of labyrinthine corridors, climb 800 steps and descend to the darkest depths, 135 metres below the earth's surface – what are you waiting for!
The little village of Lanckorona, just 30 km from Cracow, is famous for its romantic flair. Warm up with a cup of hot coffee on the market square before strolling to the castle. Enjoy the time spent with your loved one in the fresh air of the surrounding woods.
