One of the smaller squares in Krakow but still nice for a walk round or to sit on one of the benches. There’s a fountain there and plenty of seating. It’s also fairly easy to get to

Recently completely renovated [2009] this little square is often overshadowed by the larger main square. It has a fountain and some beautiful architecture. And isn't crowded. Some nice places to dine around the square

Probably not,the lively bar part of the square is only down one side and I think the hotels are in another part. Really it’s an ideal location,not just for the town centre but for krakow in general.
