This is at the centre of the square you really can't miss it. Such a beautiful building with the architecture and the surrounding areas. Loads of stalls either side selling all kinds of things from jewellery to hats and scarves. Definitely a good idea for the woman who loves shopping.

Had a walk through the cloth Hall to visit the variety of Xmas market stalls set up inside. Lots of stalls with lots of crafts and Xmas gifts, however, very repetitive, most stalls selling identical products. Was worth a look at, wouldn't make a b-line to return.

Lots of little permanent market stalls with loads of variety of goods. Restaurant and museum also there. Not a place to spend a lot of time in but still good to see.

This is the main shopping point in the main square. It has lots of stalls on either side selling warm clothing, souvenirs, jewellery & lots of other items. It can be better value than some of the surrounding shops. I would recommend a visit. One will be pleasantly surprised.

Great stalls selling all types of momento's, and silver amber jewellery. The piece in the photo is hallmarked silver amber, measures 1.4 cm and cost just 96 pln. That in English money is around the 20 pounds mark!! The two small tankards cost 20 pln...around the 4 pounds mark. Can get so much for your money here. Highly recommend you... More
