A very historic Square, lots of restaurants around the square and the horse and carriage rides are great fun. Lots of shops too, and not expensive.

We visited krakow, a short break first time in Poland and we were all impressed with the place, very old and historic and yet very modern. Really worth visiting and we would definitely return!

Prices average £2 for a large beer. A little cheaper for a latte. The Russian dumplings are divine. Dykxjgxgkkfkhocclfjgjgohojjln cgigi
