Old Synagogue information
Dating back to the end of the 15th century, the aptly named Old Synagogue is in fact the oldest Jewish house of worship in the country. It now houses a branch of the Museum of the History of Kraków . The prayer hall contains the original aron kodesh (the niche in the eastern wall where Torah scrolls are kept) and a reconstructed bimah (raised platform at the centre of the synagogue where the Torah is read). Adjacent rooms are dedicated to Jewish traditions and art, while upstairs there's a photographic exhibit.
