"Main Market Square - western side" Top 5 Page for this destination The Market Square (Rynek Glowny) Tip by matcrazy1

by matcrazy1

Favorite thing: Western side of the Main Market Square is the place of many various events like fairs, music concerts etc.

There is the
TOWN HALL TOWER in southern part of the square - on left on my picture.

There is magical Palac pod Baranami (
PALACE UNDER THE RAMS). Why magical? Welcome to my local customs and nightlife tips.

There is my favourite old Vis-a-vis DRINKBAR in the western wall of the square. Maybe it's not the best but I have great and very funny memories from this place haha.

There is
SAD WATER WALL (or maybe I should write pump) in NW part of the square. Why sad? Read in my local customs.

And there are tenths or maybe hundreds cafes, pubs, restaurants underground, on the ground floor and rarely on the first floor.
Why rarely? Hmm... do you like to go up when you are hungry? Better (more healthy) is to go upstairs with full abdomen, I suppose. Am I wrong?
Add police station located in western wall of the square.

So, we have on the West: entertainment and (strong?) authorities - hmm... like in Western Europe? Really?

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
