This beautiful city is well worth a visit. We spent three full days here. The Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) is in the heart of the Old Town and is a fascinating place to walk thru and buy your souvenir.

In the centre of the huge market square in Krakow is the Cloth Hall. Running down the middle are two banks of market stalls.

There's a fun market inside the hall. Upstairs is a lovely museum. It's one of the main sites of Krakow. Definitely worth a visit.

This only holds stalls however they sell varied goods at reasonable prices. There's not really much else to see there.
