  • Unique store, where I could always find what I need, interesting novel, nice looking handmade gift, or a guide through magical Kraków, which you can't find anywhere else. Must visit place!  more »
  • Being a tourist in Krakow's main market square and in its immediate vicinity and not visit the composition of Goods Rarytnych "Kacper Richeza of Poland" would be a great loss. Many times I come to this awesome store, which leads the author of amazing books, along with his family, in which in addition to the books you can find also bring historically inspired, board games, card [both associated with these books, and history] and, above all, historical crafts.

  • I love this place. Every time I visit Krakow, I need to check if there is any new book about Kacper Ryx. I adore the arts and crafts section too. This is a place from another century, there is always something for everyone.
  • Very good shop with interesting replicas and objects from medieval day-to-day life. But it is not cheap, so tread cerefully ;)
  • Interesting place, worth stopping by.
  • Whenever I visit on the market, then look for "Casper Ryxa". I'm a fan of the books and I really like this store. Sometimes even something buy, though mostly for gifts, not for myself (for you only), but the place nice, and with friendly service.
