This square is considering the one of the biggest and beautiful square of Europe. I have been there in November, but I guess especially in spring you can catch best time of Krakow :) Additionally, tourist gifts is more expensive inside bazaar than near places from square.

This is a grand building in the middle of the main square. In its interior arcade there are many stalls peddling various goods and souvenirs, although nothing stood out.

A wonderful place to visit to buy polish memorabilia, such a big choice, beautiful polish items, a wonderful atmosphere. Being Christmas soon, we were able to buy so many beautiful Christmas items to take back home. A truly magnificent place for tourists. Highly recommend The Cloth Hall !!!

It is really just two long rows tourist tat but there are some good bargains if you spend some time looking. It's also a very impressive building and worth visiting.

Seemed to be looking for a purpose as was full of jewellery and trinket stalls with some clothing also. Not sure this is the best use of a splendid building but I am probably totally wrong. Took 15 minutes to go from one end to the other wondering who actually buys this stuff. Outside edges have shops and restaurants -... More

We visited this place during Christmas markets. Its inside, so you can visit in any weather. Lots of shops with clothes, souvenirs and other. It is a part of Historical Main square, so no trouble with reservations or finding on maps. But the architecture and local feeling are very nice.

Located in the middle of the central square. There are several stores (among many others that offered wood carvings, woven scarves, crystals, etc) that sold beautiful amber pieces (I couldn't resis a ring). The place has a special atmosphere.
