Although the shops lining this building are mainly tourist stuff the building itself is beautiful and well worth a visit.

On my second visit to Krakow, I knew that this was the place to head to get well-priced gifts to take home. It is a beautiful building with souvenir stalls on the inside and shops and restaurants on the outside. Unusual though it seems, I found out on my second visit that that one of the larger shops on the... More

A beautiful building from the outside and full of lovely products inside. Some of the stall holders do not accept cards, but there are plenty of cash machines nearby. There are stalls selling Christmas decorations and chess sets at reasonable prices. What is most impressive is the variety of amber jewelry for sale. You need to take some time to... More

If you visit Krakow you'll visit here anyway, since it's the town square and centre. A very imposing building in a very imposing location. We visited when it was surrounded by the Christmas Market and the atmosphere was great ! The inside of the Cloth Hall is in reality an indoor market of arts and crafts - and souvenirs. Well... More

This market is indoors but right in the middle of the square. It sells all sorts of local produce from Christmas glass decoration clothes Russian dolls to sheepskin items and lots of amber jewelry. It is free to get in and is open all day and early evening

Lovely main building in the square. Do visit the Rynek Underground whilst there as there are some beautiful finds. There are also an array of shops in the main building selling a variety of leather and fur goods, jewellery and souvenirs.

The Sukiennice are now upbeat souvenir stalls. There are some great bargains to be had if you like silver and amber jewellery. Also we saw some other very original pieces of jewellery. There are lots of stalls with traditional Polish crafts - wood, glass etc. It's all under one roof. Admittedly the stalls are all very similar but it means... More
