“Cloth Hall” is a shopping gallery that appeared under King Boleslav V. Over the next centuries, the complex was rebuilt several times, overgrown with decorative elements, loggias, arches and columns. The building acquired its modern look at the end of the 19th century.

A roofed masonry version of the Cloth Hall was built in the 14th century: its traces are visible to this day in the arcades on the shorter sides. Trading in the Cloth Hall was a significant source of the city’s revenue: according to a royal privilege cloth merchants arriving in the city could only sell their goods here.
A gorgeous historic building in Krakow, still in use today.
Little stalls inside selling lots of different things.
Even better is the trip underneath to see the history that lies beneath the main square.
Great little market with affordable prices if you want to buy a souvenir to take home ! The place is also beautiful and all around with more little shops ! A must do in Krakow

Great place for souvenirs. I ended up buying a snow globe for 2 euros which is a good price. It is also nice to know the history behind the building!
A brilliant place i think i went in every shop and then and around the cloth market some fantastic things to buy, amazing. And then we went to the underground Museum, i read so much about yr history which was very good i loved it here
Not just the Cloth Hall but the whole of Krakow has to be seen to be believed at Christmas even down to the salt mines. It may be cold but the people are lovely, very helpful. You want to see a beautiful Christmas market this is the place to go.
Although the visit there took around 15-20 minutes, it was certainly very enjoyable.
