This is one the most beautiful squares in all of Europe. It is picturesque with the striking St. Mary’s Basilica as the centerpiece. Don’t miss the buglers from the church tower, the opening of the altarpiece inside the church and the museum of 19th century Polish art above the Cloth Hall.

Nice place to walk around, lots of stalls to buy from, but lots of people trying to sell you trips around the town

So many photo opportunities in this medieval square. Take all evening just strolling around and there are plenty of places to eat...but one street back it's half the price.
Street performers come out early in the evening. ..worth a watch.

Well preserved and picturesque buildings with not too crowded plaza is a great place to get your bearings and venture out exploring. Plenty of restaurants and cafes and tourist shops.
