The size of the market is simply mind blowing! Despite its size, due to the mix of architectural styles, the varied setting of buildings and the various activities that take place there, it has a unique and magical atmosphere! One that you can either enjoy stting at one of the numerous cafes, walking around or in a horse drawn carriage!

The Krakow Rynek or Main Market Square is amazing! Beautiful, old buildings surround the old cloth hall in the middle (now filled with dozens of mini stands selling everything imaginable). Lots of outdoors restaurants and bars, horse and carriage rides, tons of pigeons (there's a legend about them!), St. Mary's Church where you can hear the 'Hejnal' every hour on the hour (legend about that too!) and a wonderful, modern museum underneath it all. The Krakow Rynek is gorgeous, bustling and filled with life! No other town square compares!

Huge square surrounded by beautiful 14th & 15th century buildings and churches. Lots of great restaurants for people watching. Didn't like the tons of hawkers trying to sell me stuff, mainly tours and buggy rides.
