Distinguished political and national activist, Polish patriot,the henchman of co-operation between Poles and Jews.He financed gun’s and ammuntion delivery for all participants of November Uprising, he supported krakow resolution (1846) , then during uprising of Wiosna Ludów91848) he was a member of citizen’s delegation to Vienna. As a rabbi he ordered closing of synagogs in October 1861 as a solidarity with priests, that in in protest against tzar’s domination closed Warsaw churches.The portrait of rabbi Meisels is located in Historical Museum in Old Synagog department (ul.

Krakow as a tourist centre is usually associated with important historic monuments, connected with the history of the city and Poland. Wawel, the Barbican and St. Florian's Gate, the Main Market Square with St. Mary's Church and the Cloth Hall, as well as Collegium Maius of the Jagiellonian University, are the main tourist attractions.

Krakow also features numerous museums with rich, often little-known collections. Tourists, both those who have already visited Krakow before and those who haven't, are also invited to get to know the museum collections. Many collections may suit the tastes of visitors with special interests, be attractive to hobbyists or people interested in the history of a particular age.

 

I would like to invite you to visit the museums whose collections present the history of Krakow Jews. Kazimierz, until the Second World Wara mainly Jewish district, has been very popular among tourists in recent years. It is yet another reason to get to know Jewish art and material culture.
