We only visited one synagogue in Krakow so can't really compare. It is a large, rather stark building with some interesting artifacts. My daughter enjoyed the photographs which blended old photos of the Jewish quarter with modern photos. Fascinating.

There are no strict dress rules but common sense would dictate that respect must be shown.

It is a lovely place enjoy!
