Krakow's main market square is a beautiful and charming square lined with restaurants, cafes and shops and plenty of vendors for souvenirs, gelato and other treats. There are also a few museums and you can climb the old tower and see views of the square....More

Great place to wander, eat and drink at night. Busy with market stalls, souvenir shops and great cafes. Live bands on in the afternoons and horse & carriage rides. Absolutely charming.

The main square is the focus of the old town, you would need a month to try all the courtyards off the square and surrounding streets. 5star.

We were here Easter weekend and the festival was amazing. We met some great local artist, had wonderful food and it was very welcoming. They have a lot of history including an underground city which is amazing. Everything is very reasonably priced as well!

Main square is nice and lovely. Fun fact: almost every horse cariagge is driven by women. They are super nice. It's pretty small but you have a lot of things to see.

We stayed in tukan apartment which is excellent. It's not a hotel you got a small kitchen and all the bits you would need with plenty of space. 5mins walk from the main square and station
