The Cloth Hall

The Cloth Hall

The Cloth Hall, sitting in the very center of Market Square, was originally a covered market, and a stone structure serving that purpose is thought to have existed here at the time of Kazimierz the Great (14th century). It was rebuilt in 1585 and remodeled in 1875. Today it houses score of vendors selling Polish folk crafts.

The weather was mainly brilliant in Kraków, but the sun did disappear occasionally!

Nice to see this great building unveiled! It was mostly behind plastic sheets and scaffolding being refurbished when we were there in 2009. A great shot.....a lovely gallery.
