Create an itinerary including Sukiennice (Cloth Hall)
Located in the middle of the main square, Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) is one of the city's most recognizable architectural landmarks. The Renaissance building was once the center of international clothing trade (thus its name). In the final decades of the 19th century, it was converted into an art museum and became a major cultural venue. The grand halls house one of the largest permanent exhibits of Polish art, arranged by historical period and theme. Take a self-guided tour of the upper-floor galleries to see noted works by Josef Chelmonski, Aleksander Gierymski, Jan Matejko, and Jacek Malczewski. The ground floor features a busy market where you can purchase handmade crafts and souvenirs.

  • Cloth Hall is beautiful on the outside, and it's fun to go inside as well, although it's been turned into a shopping market with souvenir and jewelry stalls. We saw wedding pictures being taken there....  more

  • There are so many options for unique souvenirs going down both sides of the hall. Lots of Amber jewellery, teddies, magnets and loads more. Really nice to walk through and the building is absolutely beautiful.
  • Fun to walk around and see all the tourist trinkets on sale. The Cloth Hall has a very long history and displays the crests of many Polish cities. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Meh. Beautiful building filled with touristy items. You can get better memories elsewhere. That said the plaza is well worth the trip. Find a table, get a beer and watch the hordes go by!
  • Beautiful market in the middle of the square. Today you will find more tourist souvenirs then cloth. Definitely worth a walk through.
  • Interesting mix of various styles presenting work of different artists. Overall, the museum is small. Tickets are available and can be used to enter few museum locations in Krakow. There is terrasse where you can enjoy ice cream.
