Nice market area. Lots of good eating places with options of eating both inside and out. Not sure if the outdoor market is on every day but it is well worth visiting and wondering round.

A must see location if you are traveling to southern Poland. Great shops and very friendly and helpful people. Great outdoor restaurants. St. Mary's Church is incredible. Climb the steps to the top of the steeple and see the bugler that sounds the ancient warning for the city every hour on the hour. The city square has an amazing history.

Very large square very pretty lots of restaurants around the square. Has some interesting history like the fireman who plays every hour day and night .Horse drawn carriages for the tourists .The place is very clean and always busy with flower sellers musicians and street performers.

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

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.
