    How to find the objects.

    by Askla Written Dec 4, 2012

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.

    Favorite thing: Located some 80 kilometers east of Krakow, Tarnow has some lovely historical sites to visit. If travelling here by car, it is worth noting that the center is a limited parking zone where parking is only allowed within a designated area.

    * first 60 minutes: 1,70 zł
    * second hour: 2,00 zł
    * third hour: 2,30 zł
    * fourth and every next hour: 1,70 zł

    Parking tickets are available in many stores - watch for signs marked with “P”.

    The limited parking zone covers an area including the following streets :

    Jewish Culture

    Favorite thing: In XIX century Tarnow was the fourth highest Jewish populated city in Galicia after Krakow, Lwow and Stnislawow. Apart from some Hasidic influences, Tarnow was rather known as an strong Haskalah and later on Zionist center. Numerous newspapers and organizations were creating very rich and diversified cultural and political life. In 1939 Tarnow could boast of a Jewish community of 25.000 members. The Nazis established a ghetto for 40.000 people and from here in 1942 deported their victims to the extermination camp in Belzec and Auschwitz.

    How do you want to look at it?

    Town Hall from under the arcade

    Favorite thing: To me, any Old Town is quite special as I love the old architecture and like to imagine people going about their daily businesses a few centuries ago.

    With the maze of tiny little streets and old houses you get various aspects to admire, try that! The old Town Hall seems to be one thing when you're standing right in front of it, and then it looks somewhat different when you view it from the arcades, or from one of the little by-streets when you only see a part of the Town Hall and something else is in the forefront. Personally I prefer to look at it from a distance with something else adding to the picture's depth :-)

    Keep your eyes open for details

    Detail in the market square

    Favorite thing: Just like in any other place with old architecture, look up occasionally and admire some details.

    I knew that Tarnow was a pretty old place but I didn't realise its beauty till I went there. The Market Sq. is beautiful at the very first glance, but some architectural details make you appreciate the beauty even more. Funny, such small things make all the difference :-)
