“Cloth Hall”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Make sure you visit the recently opened excavations beneath the Cloth Hall in the square. Only 400 visitors a day are allowed underground and a time has to be booked in advance - it is a real "Time Team" experience.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This place is absolutely spectacular, I don't think there's quite another place like it. It's so historical and so cultural that I don't think you'd ever run out of things to do. The cloth hall was definitely our favourite, we walked through every day of our week away and every time I was pulled in to one of the stalls. Would come back tomorrow if we could.

“The Centre Hub of a Great City”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The Main Market Square in Krakow is the centre of all activity in downtown Krakow. From there, you can go to all the historic sites as well as have a great meal in the many cafes as well as see one of the most gorgeous churches, St. Mary's Basilica. Theres the cloth factory, the underground city, carriage rides, music and a pride of Pope John Paul ll. A great square in a great city.
