“Loved it!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Such a great spot, so many restaurants mixed with so much history. A very unique place. A must-see when visiting Krakow (it's hard to miss!)

“What a lovely spot!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My first visit to Krakow and I found the main square beautiful. A lovely spot to just relax but also a plentiful supply of restaurants. Easy to expect that because of where they are that these would be expensive but from what I saw not much different to those a bit off the main square. You also get to hear the bugler play every hour after the clock strikes.

“Wear comfortable shoes, lots to see.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

So much to see and do. Look out for great Amber products at very good prices and Polish Perrogie for lunch is a must do.
