Market Square: The Rynek Glowny offers ample shopping opportunities, especially for clothes, jewellery and art. The area has some of the city’s top stores and also shops selling traditional artefacts, which you can buy as souvenirs for family and friends.
Slowacki Theatre: Krakow’s theatre scene is quite dynamic and the Teatr Slowackiego plays an important role in reviving Romantic drama. Constructed in 1893, the theatre was built in Baroque style and has been named after Polish poet Juliusz Slowacki.
St. Peter and Paul’s Church: It is one of the most pompous churches designed entirely in Baroque style. The most distinct feature of the church is the white stone façade and the larger than life stone statues of 12 Apostles.
The route also covers Cloth Hall, St. Mary's Church, Barbican and Callegium Maius.
Wolnica Square: Built in neo-renaissance style, it was once the second largest market square in Poland and currently houses the Ethnographic Museum. The square is lined up with street cafes where you can rest after shopping and sip a cup of coffee.
Tempel Synagogue: Apart from being a major place of worship for the Jews in Krakow, it is also a centre of Jewish culture.
