This was on my list of must dos for my Krakow trip, and I am glad I went! I will say I thought there would be more vendors; there are probably about 40 vendors. Most of the stalls sell amber jewelry, wooden carved items, Krakow t-shirts and souvenirs, glass items, things like that. I ended up buying an amber ring,... More

I was a bit disappointed by Cloth Hall. From the outside it certainly looks impressive, bit inside it is just stall after stall of souvenir vendors, many selling the same or similar items.

If you like stall after stall of tourist oriented souvenirs this is just the place for you - fill your boots. If not, let your partner who loves this kind of thing go while you enjoy a nice drink at a sidewalk cafe...

I go every summer, sometimes just to browse, but always to buy something. Don't try to compare prices, buy it when you see what you want. Take you time and enjoy the sights and sounds.

Exterior may be more preferable to those who don't enjoy tourist shopping. Yet, we enjoyed both! Good value and some of good quality.

Cloth Hall was really busy. Lots of stalls selling typical tourist souvenirs. And some very nice Amber Stone stalls too!

Its in the main square ... and its now a souvenirs and stuff market -- so a central facet of Krakow for many years is still in use -- serving tourists .. you'll see it many times, but probably best seen at night ...

Beautiful hall. Cheap souvenirs in the stalls. Should have been more polish made things. The people working the stalls had attitudes as well. There are other better shops outside the hall.
