I loved this little square, mainly because the market stalls with the food - especially the soup stall. I was always cutting through this way when I could so I could sample another Polish soup like zurek or bigos. A great little square to grab...More

This square is just behind St Mary's church. There are a few restaurants and some interesting architecture. We went to the Bierhalle restaurant a couple of times for lunch. They brew their own beer somewhere else and it is very good.

Interesting place near the main market square with lots of pretty buildings. It's worth a wander round and you can take some great photos of the architecture.

At the back of the St. Mary's and Saint Barbara's church is the second largest square in the old Krakow. In the past it was a shopping venue

After crossing main market square back and forth for dozen times we have discovered this small picturesque square with colorful buildings. Loved it two times. First time on Sunday evening - full with locals chanting Christmas carols altogether with artists in historical clothes on the...More

These are the places that I enjoy the most in Europe. This isn't the tourist square, this is the locals square. My wife and I were just wandering around somewhat aimless when we happened upon this square. There was a live band, lots of food...More
