Historic Walking Area
Main Market Square serves as the largest medieval square in Europe and the gravitational center of Krakow. Established in 1257, the year the city received its charter, the square sits in the heart of Krakow's World Heritage-listed Old Town. See well-preserved palaces, churches, and townhouses. Stand where Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a famed freedom fighter in Poland and America, announced an uprising against foreign domination in 1794. Over the years, the square has served as a stage for political demonstrations, public celebrations, and an annual Christmas market.

  • Stayed here last year walking distance from main square excellent facility's well recommend
  • Apartment very close to the central station and the main square. The WiFi was very weak and the apartment was a bit small
  • We have rented a really inexpensive and yet clean and well equipped apartments for 4 people and 3 nights here. The price is very good, but at least our apartment is located in the middle of the ' bar / pubs Centre ' and the apartment has also very thin Windows - who is not deterred, will make this a real bargain for his holiday.
