Christmas Market

Like every year, Krakow’s City Hall invites you to visit one of the most charming Cristmas Markets in Europe!

The Rynek Glowny what means Main Market Square, which is the huge market square in the Old Town provides the setting for the Christmas Market and is largely filled with wooden stalls offering various attractions. The Rynek is dominated by the ancient majestic Cloth Hall, which makes for a splendid backdrop for visitors shopping at the Christmas Market. Furthermore, during the winter Krakow is usually draped in snow what makes it even more charming.

From mouth watering delicacies to traditional items such as woollen clothes and locally-crafted jewellery, your are sure to find your perfect Christmas gifts. I’m pretty sure that your family and friends will be amazed by hand-made jewelry, wooden boxes and toys as well as by warm wollen slippers – probably the warmest gist ever.

You should try as well a selection of Polish meat and dumplings which is always served on the Square. And don’t forget to taste hot wine or beer – a classical Polish warm-up drink!

This year, Christmas Market starts on 1st of December and lasts until Christmas Eve, 24th. If you’re planning to come to Krakow in this period of time, make sure that you will have enough time to visit it!
