The Alternative Main
Why locals love it
A bit quieter and much smaller version of the Main Square but with as much beauty and charm the Mały Rynek, or Small Square, is another spot to enjoy a meal or drink. Located right behind Saint Mary's Basilica this is a great spot to hear the Trumpeter play without the crowds of the Main Square.
Why you should visit it
Overlooked by many tourists Mały Rynek is host to many cultural, musical and culinary events throughout the year and worth a stop by to see what's going on or just to enjoy the beauty of this picturesque square which tends to be overshadowed by its bigger brother.
A few interesting events throughout the year are the Folk Music and Dance Festival as well as the Pierogi Festival amongst others.
