Main Market Square, Krakow

(4.8/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • הכיכר המרכזית של העיר העתיקה של קרקוב. מקום מגניב. מלא בתי קפה, מלא חנויות. יש במרכז של הכיכר מלא מבנים יפים ושדרה של שוק מגניב. 
  • Great even when it's cold vodka bars great in outside gardens. Fantastic and so pretty not to be missed 
  • The Main Market Square is fabulous. Being from the US, we just don;t have anything like this anywhere. I love that all throughout Europe, people brave the outdoor cafe's even in pretty chilly weather....  more »
