Bang in the middle of the Main Market Square, at the heart of this city, is the Cloth Hall (known as Sukiennice in Polish). A commercial space it was used by international traders to barter and sell goods in days of old. Slowly the system of trade changed and now the Cloth Hall houses many commercial shops and stalls. Some call it one of the oldest shopping centres still functioning. And it is a beautiful building, with renovations from different eras. A little pricier than most of the other places, this is prime realty after all, you can pick up many things here, from small souvenirs to jewellery. Also on these levels are many food stalls and cafes, stop for a bite and a lovely view. On the upper floors you will find the Sukiennice museum, which has a premier collection of 19th century Polish art (for non-art aficionados, the 19th century was a particularly productive and influential time for Polish artists) and some great 20th century Polish masters.
