Located right in the middle of the famous Market Square in Cracow, the Town Hall hosts numerous souvenir shops, cafes and is an architecural must-see attraction itself.

Beautiful historical building and wonderful souvenirs, for example: jewelry boxes, necklaces, rings with stones, fur coats, sheepskin slippers, colorful and humorous souvenirs etc. Luxury restaurants and beautiful view of city. You can see a big fantastic statue of head.
