Rynek Glowny, Krakow

Thursday, 19th January 2006 by

The 10-acre Rynek Glowny (Grand Square) has been the hub of Krakow since the 13th century and today is a popular destination for tourists and locals to go shopping or hang out in the cafes, bars and clubs (you can even see the many yellow umbrellas of a cafe in our thumbnail shot).

The square's tourist attractions include the leaning Town Hall Tower (in the South west corner), St Mary' church (in the North east) and "Cloth Hall" in the centre. Cloth Hall is the world's oldest shopping centre, having been in business some 700 years.
