    In this square is always something to do. There are street performers, stalls, cafes and restaurants. A very cozy square to view or without specific purpose just enjoy and relax in one of the cafe or walk around, a perfect starting point to explore Krakow

    Most visitors to Krakow make this their first stop when coming to Krakow. The huge square is one of the largest in Europe and is dominated by the Church of St. Mary, City Hall Tower, Cloth Market and Church of St. Wojciech. The square was laid out in 1257, when Krakow outlined a new municipal charter.
    During the summer, the square is buzzing with people, and the cafes and restaurants spill out into the vast square. On the eastern side of the square, there is a small outdoor flower market and street performers and mime artists are dotted all over the square.

    The real centre of Krakow, with the clothhall in the middle, the Rynek Glowny is huge with cafes and bars all around. A highlight is St Marys Basilica with its two high towers. Inside the Clothhall are stalls selling tacky souvenirs.
