  Pigeons in the main square

You won't have any trouble finding Rynek Glowny, the main square in Krakow's old city. I'm told it's the biggest square in Europe, and after seeing it I have no reason to doubt that. Anchored on the northeast corner by St. Mary's Church and in the center by the Cloth Hall, the square seems to have one pigeon for each umbrella at the cafes and restaurants that line its perimeter. The square is a great place to find a meal or to just relax outside wiht a drink and watch the people go by.
