Situated in the main square, it consists mainly of jewellery stands, selling amber and tourist tat. typical of the type of market found in most city centres

Not sure if I saw many cloth shops but this is a vibrant place for anyone to buy traditional polish souvenirs, gifts, wooden items from small stalls on either sides. There is also the museum on the first /upper floor and a medieval one underground - we couldnt visit as it was closed for easter and had no reservations available... More

Located in the main square, this is a very impressive building. If you walk through they have many souvenir stalls selling all kinds of things. We didn't buy anything but it was a nice way to spend ten minutes, walking around.

Great location in the middle of the square and cheap gifts. Some sentimental and some for the kids I was amazed at how clean it was and how the stalls were fully stocked and the staff more than willing to discuss prices. On occasions :)

We loved the Cloth Hall! There are so many great stalls with many items for sales. I purchased a hand carved wooden chess set. I also purchased a traditional Polish girl outfit for my 5 year old. She loved it! There is so much to choose from! It is located off the main square. They do not stay open late... More

Lovely looking building on the main square but at the end of the day is just a collection of souvenir shops. If that's what you like then no problem

Okay but personally it's an inside market, lots of lovely shops to browse with a chance to experience local knowledge rather than a market you get what younpy for
