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.

Look out over the city like the lord or lady of the castle

Make sure you visit famous Wawel castle, a must-see during your stay. From the Rynek Glowny it's only a 15-minute walk to reach this magnificent building. In the courtyard you will find the large Wawel cathedral. The castle stands on a hill and offers a beautiful view of the Wisla river. You can buy tickets to visit the interior of the castle. Tour the treasury, the armoury and a bedroom, or climb up the Sandomierska tower. Want to make sure you have a ticket and avoid long lines? Just add the Krakow Skip the Line tour when booking. It's a real timesaver!

“Unique architecture, bustling patios and a trip back in time with a visit to historic attractions.”
