“Lovely Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had dinner here a few nights on our holiday and it was lovely to sit and watch the world go by. Very relaxing . Beautiful horses and carriages , music and just people watching. A great experience in a brilliant place.

“Great to view historic buildings & people watch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a huge square surrounded by historic buildings, shops and restaurants. The day we were there it was rainy and cold, but there was still large crowd of people in the square sightseeing and eating. It would have been more enjoyable if the weather had been better so we could have had a more relaxed day.

“Highlight of my trip to Krakow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The main square in the old town is a fantastic place to visit. It was lovely sitting in the sun having a meal or drink watching the world (and the horse drawn carriages) go by. It looked a little different the next day when the torrential rain was sweeping across the square and no-one was walking about but it was still beautiful. Usually prices would be more expensive in such a touristy place but the drinks were reasonable. There is an underground museum beneath the square which is interesting. There is also a renovated indoor market that is a beautiful building especially when lit up at night. Late evening all the horses and carriages exited the square in a sort of parade. It was very enjoyable.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Day or night this place is breathtaking. Lots to see and do, many cafes, restaurants, shops. No litter or stained pavements-as in UK- people enjoying themselves but no drunken loutish behaviour at night.
