One of the best town halls in Poland, probably the best! There is a lot of great things to do, can spend all day there even without Christmas markets, it's pretty busy.
We love it. It's the second time that we come, always beautiful and full of life. I highly recommend it for tourists. A lot of restaurants and souvenirs shops.
Absolutely gorgeous city square. Well looked after and clean. Shops, bars and restaurants surround the area. Just a truly beautiful place to be.
Been a lot of times to Kraków and it is every time a beautiful sight. Especially now because there is much less tourism. One of my favorite city’s.
A magical city indeed, once being the capital of Poland. Really worth giving this city a tour. Most it restored or renovated. Charming in its old and architectural self. You'll be spellbound.
