“Fascinating”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great for people watching, market stalls, wonderful horses and carriages. Nothing to dislike. Plenty of food and drink outlets. If eating/drinking on the square you may pay more, watch for the little nibbles they provide. You will pay for them.

“Alive with people”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We made it a habit to walk this square at least once per day. Always had something to see. Street performers were amazing. Families, couples, teens. All having a good time without being rude.

“Beautiful place to eat, drink and people watch”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Liked - Spotlessly clean. Excellent choice of bars/restuarants to eat, drink and watch the world go by. Serenaded by the trumpeteer in St Catherines church tower on the hour. Beautifully turned out horses and carriages. Loads of floral displays. Disliked - A hike to the toilets of most bars situated underground below street level. Some bars taking the p*ss charging 12 Zl for a beer when others charge 9!

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!)
