One of the largest private galleries in PL, this famous exhibition space inside a former Jewish synagogue focuses on the best Polish post-war art Built between 1879-1881, this unique brick building that was once the Zucher Synagogue - one of four Jewish prayer houses in the Krakow Ghetto, the others being located at numbers 6 and 7 of the same street and nearby at ul. Krakusa 7. Practicing Judaism was forbidden by the Germans during the second World War (though it continued in secret), and the synagogue was converted into a warehouse and a factory. When the Krakow ghetto was established, many valuable religious artefacts of the Kazimierz synagogues have been transferred here for protection, but the eventual liquidation of the ghetto of the guarantee that they have been looted and lost. After the war, the building slowly fell into abandonment until Andrzej and Teresa Starmach saved, in 1996, the restoration of the facade and transform it into a gallery of art exhibitions are always outstanding and a visit is highly recommended.
