We walked in and out of cloth hall many times without realising what was hidden underneath! Recently discovered, underneath the main square is the old city! We didn't find this very well advertised as we hadn't heard about it, but it is a must see!...More

A wide range of items - pottery, wooden toys, amber, jewellery, local crafts and tourist souvenirs. Indoor, but open to the main square

Great shopping and excellent food choices in and around the Hall. We bought gifts for family and friends here, and Christmas ornaments as well. Everything here appears to be made in Poland! Did not see any offshore junk.

I have only been to Krakow in summer, june-Aug., it's hot but not uncomfortable. As far as the cloth hall shops go, again in the summer, many were still opened after 9 and those along the outside later. When you are done... More
