Impressive structure in centre of square, filled with stalls selling amber and souvenirs. We thought everything was quite expensive, especially the amber. A lot of the stall sellers looked as if they were over their job and preferred to be on their phones instead of interacting with customers.

Downstairs there is a toilet, which... More

This beautiful building planted in the middle of Market Square is quite beautiful and should be admired from the surrounding square and bars/cades. The shops in inside are pretty much all of the same, selling most of the same souvenir items. A stroll through the stands is probably the most any one person may need.

The cloth hall is the central building in the city square and is a large indoor market selling all types of souvenirs. Prices are reasonable with cut glass, coloured wooden boxes and Amber jewelry on offer

Tacky souvenir shops and nothing else. Not really worth visiting and the only reason to is to go through it to get elsewhere.

Cloth hall is a long building on the inside there are lots of little market type stores (they are fixed). They sell all sorts of things like postcards, magnets, dragons of Kraków, lace and Russian dolls to name just a few. It's lovely to walk through and see what's going on. I brought a couple of things from here it's... More
