Kevarim
Jewish cemetery near the Old Powazki. Established in 1809, it is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in the world. Spread over an area of nearly 44,000 square feet (3160 square meters), the cemetery was left largely intact by the Nazis and includes the graves and tombs of a quarter of a million people, including the great Rabbanim of Warsaw as well as many secular giants in literature and the arts.

The Jewish Ghetto
The infamous Warsaw Ghetto, the scene of the only organized uprising.
On the left side of the Praga River, where the Ghetto used to be, you can visit several monuments commemorating the Jews of Warsaw, including the Monument over the Ghetto Heroes at Zamenhof Square, and Umschlagplatz, a memorial raised at the very spot where Warsaw Jews were gathered in 1943, loaded on cattle wagons and transported to the death camp at Treblinka. It is still possible to see how Jews lived in Warsaw ulica Prozna, a street left largely intact from before the Holocaust.

We had a meal for 30 or so at the Izaak Shul in Krakow in November (part of jroots tour). Was very pleasant, good was fine (traditional) and a nice atmosphere. Staff very helpful and room is ideal for 20 guests.
You can daven in Izaak Shul with Chabad or Ramah with local community - thought the latter struggles for a minyan.

there is also a new הכנסת אורחים in Krakow

City?

Thanks for the response. My bad for not putting that in the post. Warsaw Poland.
We ended up taking an Uber from the airport. Made a stop at the synagogue, went to the cemetery, ghetto wall (courtyard was closed), prozna st and back to airport.
Total trip was 2.5 hours. Total cost 79pln (approx $23)
Overall was a great experience! Driver was very nice, although the downside he didn’t really speak English very well.

Maybe the one that made it created the new app that came out recently and he wants people using the app.
Problem is I want to give it to someone that doesn't have a smartphone.

Just the maps with the address to plan the route.
