Klezmer in Kraków

By | July 17, 2014

It’s rare to say that you hate when a concert has to end! But this was one of those times. So we did the next best thing: we danced our way across the square in the Kazimierz district, right into a great restaurant, Arial, where our Old World Europe party continued. Stirred up by the music, we devoured dish after dish of Jewish classics, made even tastier by traditional décor and excellent service. The night was perfect.

Smithsonian Journey’s agendas give travelers precious blocks of free time to explore events of special interest. And this was one such event that stole our hearts. Come to Old World Europe and hear the music for yourself!
