Application

Get the iOS/Android free app and go for a walk. Kazimir gives you information, shows interesting places and makes walking through Kazimierz easier, on an interactive map. The guide is for people that are curious, regardless of the age, religion or foot size.

Idea

The social purpose of the Kazimir project is to show the correlation of Jewish and Polish cultures throughout centuries. Information about pre-war and current life of the Kazimierz district is supposed to encourage the citizens of Cracow to get interested in history of the places they visit day to day.

We want the Poles to know the Jewish history of Kazimierz and for Jews to know its’ current state. In the pre-war part of Kazimir we created a reverse navigation - from right to left, that corresponds to the reading direction of Hebrew. The goal is to connect people of different nationalities, religions and cultures.

Logo

The logo is based on the shape of the district, resembling the Hebrew letter BETA, reflects two cultures, religions and nations. Being a symbol of HOME it relates to the easy, non-pretentious atmosphere of Kazimierz as well as its’ undisputed hospitality.
