Kazimierz is a historical district of Kraków, best known for being home to a significant Jewish community since the 14th century until the Holocaust in the Second World War. The boundaries of Kazimierz are defined by an old island on the Vistula river. The northen branch of the river (Stara Wisła – Old Vistula) was filled-in at the end of the 19th century during the partitions of Poland and made into an extension of Stradomska Street connecting Kazimierz District with Kraków Old Town.
