Cloth Hall in Cracow

7th October 2014

The middle of Main Market Square is occupied by long Renaissance building called the Cloth Hall of Sukiennice. The origin dates back to the 13th century where there were two wooden stalls where cloth was sold.
Today the main hall is occupied by two wooden rows of wooden stalls by Jan Matejko. Currently this  is a place where tourists can buy Polish typical souvenirs like amber, silver, wooden figures and clothes.






 There are crests of Polish cities on the ceiling. You can see crest of my hometown Bytom
