The Cloth Hall is a beautiful building in the centre of Main Market Square. The building itself stands beautifully in the square with fabulous architecture. Inside the Cloth Hall there are numerous stalls offering local produce, jewellery, ornaments and souvenirs.

When around main square, you must make a visit here, steeped in history, with a nice café too, often piano being played in a beautiful original setting, also make a visit to the underground museum.

I went the day I arrived and it was lovely to see. Right in the centre of the main square and wonderful to see beautiful works of art my polish artists that I had never heard of previously.

Personally didn't think it was amazing, just lots of stalls full of Krakow souvenirs, but in a beautiful building.

Always visit the Cloth Hall on each of my visits to Krakow and always buy something unusual that you don't see in the stops

OK, so the stalls are aimed directly at the tourist make no mistake. But stand back at look at this magnificent structure, the oldest market in the world, then walk through and enjoy the elaborate architecture. It is exquisite
