Main Market Square
The kernel of the Krakow Old Town is the vast Main Market Square. It’s been the hub of the city ever since King Boleslaw the Chaste (honest!) wandered the cobblestones (that’s way back in 1257). History oozes from every redbrick church tower and every filigreed wall of the centuries-old Cloth Hall here, but the real joy is simply strolling around, dodging the horse-pulled carriages, and dropping into the corner bars for a cold Polish beer!
