Krakow itself is w world famous tourist destination. Here is yet another attraction there derived from recent archaeological excavations. It is situated predominantly under the old Haberdashers stalls, converted these days to souvenir and artisans’ shops. The building itself is old, goes back to 16th century, some parts are older. You descend to a medieval and earlier beginnings of the Old Market Square, which is arguably the largest of the kind in Europe. No wonder the excavations must have been very rich and rewarding and lasted for many years. The number of the strata (levels), each representing a different era of the past is impressive and so is the number of artefacts found. The exhibition is meant to bring us closer to the lives of our predecessors, who lived and traded there, whatever country they came from and whatever their nationality. It reflects upon the importance of the city, once the seat of Polish kings and the capital of a vast empire. The exhibition is modern, convincing, interesting and informative. Well worth a visit. On a rainy day-there is somewhere to hide, on a hot, summer day-somewhere to escape the heat of the day. There is also a lovely café for your delectation and a museum shop. We enjoyed our visit there a lot.
