an unimpressive square surrounded by poor value bars/cafe and filled with people bothering visitors for custom
The sun was shining gloriously when I was there, and to be able to easily get from one end of the city to the other was a great testament to the public service trains which connect the city! The Old square was bustling with tourists and was great to sit outside with a latte and watch the crowds ebb and... More
It is a very pretty area surrounded with lovely pastel buildings, a huge monument to Sigismund III Vasa (who moved the capital of Poland from Krakow to Warsaw in 1596) and a massive 13th-century Royal Castle. We didn’t go inside the Royal Castle but it looked amazing from the outside.

If you get there for Xmas, check if the market is on... More

Downside that there is no where to keep personal belongings but a friend found the culture centre was very useful and offered to put our stuff in their cloakroom. Fantastic surroundings to ice skate in, beautiful buildings with... More

On the wall by the narrowest entrance to the Square hangs a giant photo of the Square as it was just... More
Nowhere near as good at the Market Square in Krakow and not that many vendors (Where else am I supposed to get my touristy Polish souvenirs??) but coming from Vancouver, Canada - we have nothing even close to something like this so it was still pretty cool to see
