Krakow holidays have become more popular with Britons in recent years. The city is both stunning, historical and financially appealing to those who don’t want to spend a fortune on holiday. On a first visit to Krakow, many will be attracted to the city’s more touristic spots.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine, Wawel Castle and of course the harrowing scenes at Auschwitz are all definitely worth visiting.

The Cloth Hall (Sukiennice)

Krakow’s Cloth Hall is considered to be the world’s oldest shopping centre, dating back to 1555.

The hall features a plethora of food stalls and small shops that range from Polish delicacies to sweet treats.

Most of the stalls sell locally made gifts, trinkets, clothes and terracotta pottery.

The building is packed full of vibrance – ranging from exciting smells to bright colours.

It’s the perfect spot if you’re looking for an unusual souvenir that won’t cost you a fortune.

The cloth hall is right in the middle of Krakow’s Old Town which is a great place to try some traditional Polish food.

Krakow’s main square, known as Rynek Główny, actually has an underground museum right underneath it.

The underground museum has an area of over 6,000 square metres and walks visitors through Krakow’s rich history.

One part of the museum also includes remains of medieval constructions.

The museum’s main feature is called “In the footsteps of Krakow’s European identity”.
