A wonderful place to hang around. Every day and every part of the day it gave us a different view of the activity. From bazaar to street performers,feeding the doves, having coffee, hear music. So nice and pleasant. Don’t miss it

Krakow, unlike Warsaw, was left largely intact as Germany overtook the area during WWII. What you see here is the real thing! This is an old European Market Square, which so much character!

It was very nice to wander around without the hassle of traffic. The old buildings & architecture were very impressive.

We came during Easter break so a huge market was set up with food stands and vendors selling everything from coloured eggs to pottery, leather goods and more. The square is huge surrounded by bars and restaurant from all four sides. It’s a very lively place with spectacular architecture. A true gem in Central Europe!
