Lovely little stalls/shops, very hot on a hot day, felt sorry for the staff working there. 90% of stalls sell similar stuff but if you are looking for something that would stand... read more

Everything has been said here before, but as one of the oldest buildings and originally built for trading, it’s still doing a fantastic job of concentrating nearly all the tourist souvenirs in small stalls in one place. Some genuine handicrafts and of course the usual tat. The main square is thankfully mostly clear of them.

It is something you should visit in Krakow - actually you can hardly miss it, because it is located in the middle of Krakow main square. As a building it is really nice. Don't forget to notice Polish coats of arms on the inside walls. But be prepared, that it is full of stalls selling souvenirs so it is too... More

Nice building form the outside with high architectal value. Inside are the usual tourist shops which doenst' really fit the building. There is a nice restaurant with lovely terrace where you can watch the people going by on the main square.

Lovely little stalls/shops, very hot on a hot day, felt sorry for the staff working there. 90% of stalls sell similar stuff but if you are looking for something that would stand out from the rest you should be able to find it there too. Lovely choice of necklaces, had massive dilemma which one to buy. Very overcrowded (I guess... More

It is worth wandering through once to see this historic building with the stalls and the various badges for towns in Poland, which is what most seemed to be doing.

Once you are done with history and other attractions at the main town square, the Cloth Market (also very historical) should be your last stop to pick up a few souvenirs. Not the cheapest place to shop but a very colorful place indeed, with a long row of small shops each selling traditional Polish and Krakow specialties and handicrafts. I... More

Nice to look around at stuff, but I wouldn't waste your money here. It's one if the oldest buildings in Krakow and worth it to walk through, but that's about it.

We enjoyed our visit, there was so much to see. A must visit if you are in the area. We stayed just outside the town. But we're able to walk there, it is better to walk, as you miss so much when you drive.
