Wawel Castle, the Barbakan, Florian Gate, the Wawel Castle complex, with the Sigismund's Chapel and its cathedral, St. Mary's Basilica, with the altar by Wit Stwosz (Veit Stoss) and the renaissance Cloth Hall (Sukiennice). From the Middle Ages to the catastrophe of second world war Kraków – and especially Kazimierz – was counted among the greatest centres of Jewish activity in Europe. Attracting millions of tourists every year the district is home to the oldest Jewish sacred religious building in Poland which still stands along visitors route, the grave of a famous Rabbi which the Nazis did not dare tear down, a synagogue with stained-glass windows (a true rarity!), and the family home of the queen of cosmetics, Helena Rubinstein who hailed from Kazimierz. Worth visiting is also the old German Factory of Enameled Vessels, during the World War II owned by Oskar Schindler – a museum and memorial place reminding about the extermination’s times.
