In the centre of the main square - the building itself is amazing and is now used as a sort of craft market with individual shops / stalls selling a variety of (mainly touristy) items. Many cafes and restaurants around the outside.

Very pretty and there every day. The cloth market is a must if you want reasonably priced goods to take home. Slippers, gifts, Christmas presents, jewellery all there to be bought and many hand crafted.

I think the cloth hall on the central market places in Cracow is a great place to visit. It is a custody of the folklore and rich tradition of this jewel of a city. Recently I was in the underground museum which shows the history of the place.

The Cloth is a beautiful building in the centre of the Main Market Square. It is basically just an indoor market with stalls selling pretty expensive souvenirs, that can be bought cheaper in other locations. The building makes up a group of lovely other building of the old town square.

Lovely building right in the centre of the Main Market Square which houses the "Underground Museum". Fringed on the outside by some small shops and a lot of cafes and restaurants where, on a nice day, it is perfect for relaxing and 'people watching'. The inside is one long corridor with stalls packed closely together on either side - a... More

The building the cloth market is in is very beautiful and fits in well in the main square. Was disappointed when i went in though as only souvenirs for sale really, and more expensive here than in shops outside the cloth market.

The Cloth Hall dominates the Old Town Square and is impossible to miss. On the outside, it houses the entrance to the Rynek Underground museum, a tourist information office, and a variety of restaurants and small shops. Inside, you will find various "market stalls" selling furs, jewelry, and souvenirs. I suggest not buying your souvenirs from here as it is... More

Right in the centre at the big square you find this mall selling lots of different stuff - old and new age. You do not need to plan for it - you will stumble over it sooner or later. What we found more interesting was all the the stuff being sold outside - so take the time to wonder around... More

I know there are restaurants and museums in there. But for me Sukiennice will always stand for dozens of little souvenir shops. And as such the place does not have much value. It is a perfect centerpiece to the Market Square though, beautiful on the outside.
