Rynek or the Main Square in Cracow (Kraków )


Rynek in Stare Miasto, or the Main Square in the Old Town is a lively place, especially during the summer months when pavement cafes and restaurants spread out welcoming visitors with drinks, meals and ice cream.


It's a good place to sit and observe Poles at work and leisure.


The Tourist Information centre in the Old Square stocks a good selection of booklets about Cracow and southern Poland. Stock up on guide books or book trips to the Salt Mine, Zakopane etc. It's relatively simple to organise your own trips using public transport but these pre-booked trips do help make life easy at a price.
