Not very long ago, this historic square had been reduced to an ugly car park. But after a 2010 renovation inspired by the nearby Maly Rynek squares cultural success, this public space became a popular hangout. Car-free, surrounded by beautiful townhouses, with the large light, sound and water fountain in the center, it’s a favourite of kids and their pets. The renovation of the place itself was fraught with delays thanks to the many archaeological discoveries made at this location - this used to be the site of an old Jesuit cemetery and church, demolished in 1802. Looking over the square is the oldest theatre in the country.
Among the people buried here is the infamous Samuel Laszcz, a pillager, rapist and robber who got away with his crimes for the virtue of being a good commander in wartimes.

Stalls of various types of honey this was a anniversary of a Hundred years of Bee keeping.Lots of arts and crafts, food stalls to enjoy.Always something different happening at the weekends, worth a visit.
Great place to visit loads of choice to eat bit quiet when we were there in February but in the summer can imagine very busy.
Nice square with beautiful stone paved roads and minimal traffic. Has a lot of restaurants.
Great service, served quickly, a fair variety of dishes to choose from. Quality of food was very good, and the prices are not too steep considering a very touristy location.
Beautiful square with a fountain that is lit up at night.
