Trzebinia and Chrzanów are two towns in the Western part of the Małopolska Voivodeship are not usually treated as tourist sites, although there is both sight-seeing and recreational tourism in the area. The history of the Jewish communities of Trzebinia and Chrzanów, as well as preserved monuments, are known only to a minute group of experts and hobbyists. However, the beginnings of the Jewish communities in Chrzanów and Trzebinia can be traced back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Both of the towns have preserved Jewish cemeteries and the Mazraki Museum in Chrzanów hosts a collection related to Judaica. In Trzebinia there is still the building of the town’s synagogue.
