"Shoppig in Krakow" Krakow Shopping Tip by queenpamela

Krakow Shopping: 180 reviews and 248 photos

Krakow’s central Old Town historic district, turned into a pedestrian precinct, teems with stores of all sorts. They line every street in the area, at the main avenues (e.g. Florianska St, Szewska St, Grodzka St or Slawkowska St) crammed into every available space: front and the backyard, ground floor, upstairs, cellar, even attic here and there. Their wares vary from designer garb to jewelry to antiques to books and CDs to everyday necessities, yet luxury goods prevail.

Krakow natives have acquired a taste for brand-new shopping centers round giant ‘hipermarkets’ foreign retailing giants such as France’s Carrefour and Britain’s Tesco studded the city with. Nonetheless in every part of Krakow traditional marketplaces swarm as ever with bargain hunters and shoppers looking for produce fresh from the farm.
