“buskers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

main square was great the only problem with sitting outside was people street dancing or playing violins then they come round asking you for money. one evening we had sat down listened to a violinist who wasn't very good but we paid him anyways then by the time we had finished our meal he had gone all round the square and back again but this time i didn't pay him.this happens every night so if you tip you need to take plenty of change

“Better than St Marks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We liked it all, busy, clean, plenty going on and so many places to eat. The Sukiennice museum under the cloth hall is well worth a visit.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

My favorite spot in Europe. So clean, and the food was amazing. I felt as if I were back in time...and an ultramodern mall (Galeria) was within walking distance from the stary rynek.

“People watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great for people watching with a beer. Bars a little more expensive here but that's to be expected. But an essential part of your stay in krakow

“Central Krakov”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Beautiful square, lively atmosphere, great art gallery and underground archaelogical exhibition. Excellent street performers. Interesting church where a fireman plays the trumpet every hour, on the hour.
