The Main Market Square in Krakow is the most important market square of the Old Town in Krakow, Poland and a principal urban space located at the center of the city. It dates back to the 13th century, and at roughly 40,000 m it is the largest medieval town square in Europe.
Rynek Glowny is a spacious square surrounded by historical townhouses, palaces and churches. The center of the square is dominated by the Sukiennice, rebuilt in 1555 in the Renaissance style, topped by a beautiful attic or Polish parapet decorated with carved masks. On one side of the Sukiennice is The Town Hall Tower, on the other the 10th century Church of St. Wojciech and 1898 Adam Mickiewicz Monument. Rising above the square are the Gothic towers of St. Mary's Basilica.
