If you are visiting Krakow for a few days and staying near the market square the best place for you to go will probably be the “Galeria Krakowska” shopping mall.
It isn’t the biggest in the area – but for a tourist it is the easiest to find, and it is still massive.
While compared to some other shopping places in Krakow it isn’t too cheap, for UK/USA tourists it’ll generally be cheaper than back at home. The biggest bonus is that it is a huge shopping mall with almost anything you would need – especially if you need clothes. They have clothing brands such as C&A, United Colors of Benetton, esprit, Levis, Lacoste, New Yorker, Pull & Bear, Zara, Boss, Timberland. Shoe shops such as Clarks. Sport shops, jewellery stores and more.
How to find it:
Galaria Krakowska is right next to the train station (and very close to the bus station). From the main square it is about 10 minutes walk, from Florians Gate/The Barbican it is about 5 minutes walk. The For full details on how to get to the Galeria Krakowska see here.
