I was a little disappointed here, I thought all the stalls pretty much sold the same thing one after the other of mass produced stuff. I loved the architecture of the building and it was lovely and cool inside, out the hot sun but I think it would have been nice to see something a bit mor original. Yes there was lots of trinkets, tons of amber, which it think would have been so much more unique had there not been about 15 stalls selling pretty much the same stuff...

A nice market, just in the center of the most important square of the city. Definetely worth to see!

Situated in the central square, Rnek Glowny, from the outside this is awesome, inside it houses stall after stall of traders selling their ware, particularly amber jewellery but also lovely glass and wooden items etc. Great for Xmas gift ideas. It is a very touristy area though, but that said I have seen worse and you dont really see anyone behaving offensively so can't complain. The entire square is a place of architectural splendour and it deserves time to consider and appreciate this properly. There is no shortage of smart looking restaurants and cafes to sit at for this purpose.

Maybe the most important attraction in Krakow where you can find every kind of souvenir for a few money. Amazing Place.

We wanted to take back things to remind us of Poland culture and gifts for family. Everything you need is here for young and old alike, T-shirts, Russian dolls, wooden toys and boxes, jewellery, you name it its there! Great value and although there are a lot of stalls, they are all selling things at the same price, so if you see a gift you want, don't bother pricing the other stalls, this will save you some legwork. This catered for all our needs and more, some amazing magnets if you like that sort of thing (which I do)!
