Krakow Old Town (Kraków Stare Miasto)

Rynek Głowny, Krakow, Poland

The basics

Start your Old Town explorations at the cobblestoned main square, Rynek Główny. One of Europe’s largest medieval town squares, Rynek Główny is nothing short of impressive with its Renaissance-era Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) and the lopsided, 14th-century St. Mary’s Basilica. The square’s interior is lined with well-appointed apartments, cafés, and bars. Most guided tours meet at Rynek Główny, then head into the interconnecting alleyways off the square to discover Old Town’s museums and other sights.
