Why locals love it

The central meeting place in Krakow since the 13th century, the Main Square is always hustling and bustling with both tourists and locals. As the beating heart of the city many important events take place here as well as festivals and political events.

Why you should visit it

It is the largest medieval market square in Europe and is lined with some of the most important buildings in Krakow. Admire the architecture and street performers or stop by one of the many cafes for a drink or a bite.

Special tip

Make your way to St Mary's Basilica where every hour on the hour a trumpeter plays the Hejnal Mariacki and learn about why it breaks off mid-stream.
