Plac Bohaterow Getta
The main feature of the Plac Bohaterow Getta, or Ghetto Heroes Square, is a monument which was erected in December 2005 on the site of a former Jewish ghetto to commemorate the heroes and victims that lost their lives during the Nazi occupation.
The haunting monument spreads across the entire square and features 70 empty chairs, each of which represent the furniture that was left behind when the Jewish population was evacuated and herded to concentration camps in the death trains.
As you might expect the square has a quiet, sombre atmosphere, but when you´re ready for some peace and quiet is an ideal location to escape the hustle and bustle you find in other areas of the city.

Quiet, atmosphere, an ideal location to escape the hustle and bustle you find in other areas of the city, indeed. Such a great place to learn more about Krakow's history.
