This place was our favourite part of Krakow. The markets and cloth hall really added to the atmosphere of the square and we went every lunch time to get some traditional polish food from the Market Stalls. Everything was delicious and great value. Lots of places to stop and have a drink around the edges of the square as well as amazing architecture, churches and a huge amount of history. Be sure to check out the exhibition underground which shows the remains of the original square dating back to the 10th century!

Main square is lovely. Great food stalls-and stalls to buy gifts etc. Also outside/inside restaurants which where busy and food look amazing. It was pretty busy when we where there as there was a sports event going on. You have to visit when in Kraków. Only downside was number people trying to get you go on there tour buses.

The market square is beautiful. There is lots to do and many bars and restaurants to chose from. We went on a horse and cart tour that lasted approx. 35 minutes around the Old Town and cost 200 zloty. It takes you past alot of the Old buildings and definately worth the price. Some restaurants are quite expensive, it just depends what your looking for.

The Market Square is full of life, and even if it is a tourist-y place, it's cosy and warm. There are market stands selling everything from babushas and dragons, to soups, waffles and pierogies. You have the beautiful cloth hall, and the St. Mary's Basilica right there. There are plenty of restaurants around the square, and for being such a crowded place, the prices aren't that bad.

Lovely to walk around the square, make sure you go up the tower for some great views. Market stalls inside and out are great for bargain shopping!
