Cloth Hall - Sukiennice, Krakow: 89 reviews and 149 photos


The Cloth Hall has a long long history: in the 13th century there was already a market at that exact spot and in the 14th century a hall was built to protect the stalls from rain and storm. After Krakow was burnt down in the 16th century, the Cloth Hall was rebuilt in the Renaissance style. It was only in the 19th century, when the arcades were added.

Inside the Cloth Hall you will find souvenir shops to the left and the right, but you should also look at the details: the lamps, the coat of arms, sculptures etc!
