The Market Is The Cloth Hall (Sukiennice)

The biggest building, which stands on the market square in the center of Krakow, which was formerly a place for storage and store shelves of fabrics. In the old days - cloth (hence received its name from).

The Cloth Hall began its construction during King Boleslaw 5th the Modest, in the 13th century and represented rows of fabrics. But 100 years later during Casimir the Great in the 14th century the construction of a new building in the Gothic style had begun, and in 1555 it was partially burned down. So in the 16th century paduanets Mosca had rebuilt it and restored. Now it has a medieval architecture which the Cloth Hall acquired from the 19th century, thanks to the architect Prylinkom.

On the ground floor there is a shopping arcade, where you can find any goods, mostly made of gold and silver, amber products, as well as leather and fur. And the top holds a museum, where exhibitions are constantly held. They show a large collection of Polish heritage: coins, medals, paintings, weapons, armor and other relics.
Address: Rynek Główny 3, Krakow
