Lots of stalls selling tourist goods at bargain prices. I loved it!
They sell lots of Amber jewellery, gloves and clothing.

“Don’t waste your time or money here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The Sukiennice (Cloth or Drapers Hall) is situated directly in the center of Rynek Glowny, blocking your view and making it all feel a bit less impressive. It is also a brilliantly places tourist trap where cheaply made wares are sold; higher quality goods could be purchased elsewhere in the city at lower cost.

Keep a vigilant eye while taking in this beautiful square (beautiful because you are in the Cloth Hall and can’t see it), as there is mischief afoot. This was the only place in my travels across Eastern Europe where I was targeted for pick-pocketing (by a two person team).
