A beautiful building, with the interior housing lovely individual shops, selling sheepskins, artisan goods - some shops having Christmas market style goods (glass baubles on stands etc.) Very atmospheric and bustling.

We were in the town square snaking through the maze of Christmas markets when we stumbled upon the Cloth Hall. I didn't know to look for it because I hadn't read about it on Trip Advisor prior to touring. When I walked in, I couldn't believe my eyes! I thought I wasn't exchanging the currency correctly in my head because... More

An interesting old building right in the centre if the main square. The outside of the building houses shops and restaurants whereas the inside has a great selection of 'stalls' / small open units where you can get a huge range of souvenirs. Worth a stroll around.

It is simply an indoor market with a variety of Tat , and some quality stuff (crystal glassware). A quick 5 minute job unless you like buying this sort of thing

A nice building that blends in. We walk around several times before we actually realized that there is a nice market inside (maybe because of the Christmas market taking place on the square at that time) with mostly touristic products.

A great iconic landmark in the town square and the interior is equally spectacular . However the shops inside are nothing more than overpriced tourist traps ... A nice place to look but not buy

Didnt find cloth hall that interesting. Stalls were selling the same items and found it quite pricey for Poland

It's a beautiful building in itself, with great architectural details and even a few gargoles dotted on it. Inside is a series of market stalls clearly aiming at the tourists - plenty of tempting amber jewellery and souveniers. Well worth a stroll through.

Right in the middle of the city square of Kraków sits this lovely building which does not fail,to impress. Visitors can walk from end to end inside on the ground floor to appreciate its architecture and the cosy stalls selling touristic goods. Very photogenic for sure.
