The medieval city square
Rynek Glowny (literal translation: Big Market) is a must-see attraction! This centuries-old market square is the size of about two football fields, making it one of the largest city centre squares in Europe. In the middle of the square you will find the Cloth Halls, the former epicentre of trade in the 15th century. Today you can shop endlessly here for the best souvenirs in Poland. Visit the first floor of the Cloth Halls to admire an exhibit of 19th century Polish paintings.
The former merchant mansions that line the square have now been transformed into lively restaurants and cafés. This is the perfect place to take a break from your shopping and watch the romantic carriages ride by.
