A shady spot on a hot day individual crafts and a large selection. Bought well made wooden toys for the grandchildren.

“Retail Therapy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Nice to wonder around and do a little shopping. Can be more expensive than on the side streets. We bought Amber here, there are lots of shops to choose from, prices can be a little more expensive in the Market Square.

“Great place to shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Shopping for souvenirs in Krakow? The best place that I found is the Cloth Hall. Basically, everything is under one roof. From what I saw, the products here are authentic-that is all made in Poland. This was not the case in Zakopane. Some things there came from Austria, etc. And , the shop keepers were passing them off as native products! Take your time while strolling down the multitude of shops in Cloth Hall so that you don't overlook all that is being offered. Items are really packed into the stalls. When I bought more than one item, I bartered with the shopkeeper and got a minor reduction in price. Make sure you don't overlook the small stores on the outside of Cloth Hall. Some of them have unique items that are not found inside the Hall.

“Best at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a majestic building with the arcade through the centre containing many small stalls along the side, in their own alcoves. Attractively lit at night and is very inviting but whether the goods sold are to you liking is of course debateable but worth a look and is visually the centre piece of the main square.

“Gifts galore.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Sukiennice has been in existence for centuries. I love the little shops that line the main corridor. You can find there all kinds of fabulous treasures from crystal, china, jewelry, ethnic costumes and leather products. Definitely a must stop when in Krakow.
