Great square and lovely building

This is a beautiful place to visit. If you come to Krakow, there's no way you could miss this. Grab a seat at one of the many restaurants surrounding it and enjoy the day :)

It's a market with all kinds of stuff. Kick knacks and clothes. Neat stuff, but definitely priced for tourists.

This lovely building is in the centre of the main square and although full of souvenir shops it is fun to walk through and see what is for sale. Beautifully decorated ceilings with the coat of arms of the different cities etc. in Poland.

It was interesting but basically just a lot of stalls selling souvenirs. Its in the middle of the Krakow square and once you have looked at the restaurants, had a drink, eaten,some food gone into the church then you will go there. It can not be avoided.

Very crowded tourist scene with not much other than tourist type souvenirs. Was hoping for interesting hand made goods or antiques, but mostly craft style things. Very crowded.

Basically two rows of stalls selling all sorts of polish made goods. Prices are competitive if you haggle (gently). Great Amber. Great if it's raining!

Cloth Hall is one of the original buildings in Krakow. It started out with just stalls and then was made into this building. A variety of small shops occupy the inside of the Hall. Many stalls sell the same items so shop around for the best price. The building itself is beautiful. Situated in the Main Square it is very... More
