  The horse-carriages.
by breughel
 
 

They are rather large carriages well decorated, often white, with two horses and two cabman or cabwoman. The horses are strong and their harness is decorated. I must say that the couples in the white carriages made me think of the recent royal prince marriage in London.

Usually there are several standing on the north side of the Rynek Glowny market place. We found remarkable that at their standing place there was no bad smell of horse's urine. The clients at the terraces would not like that when drinking or eating. We remembered the smell of the fiacre horses in Vienna at the St-Stephansdom! At Rynek Glowny it's clean. I wonder how they do.

The price (2011) for a half hour promenade is 100 Pln = 26 € (the 60 Zloty mentioned here are from 2004). It appears that you can discuss somewhat the prices and that you may choose the carriage you want. You don't have to take the first in line. Just for comparison in Vienna it costs 40 € for 20 minutes!
