GoPoland!: Where to Go: Krakow: Sights: Town Square

The Sukiennice
Dating back to the Middle Ages, and still dominating Krakow's square, the Sukiennice began and continues as a market. Inside, you can buy to your hearts content or appreciate some local art in the upstairs gallery.
Statue of Adam Mickiewicz
A popular resting spot in the square, this statue pays homage to Poland's best-loved Romantic poet.
Birdseed anyone?
This most common sight - more pigeons than you can shake a stick at - in the square has become a rite and almost symbol of Krakow.
Piwo, anyone?
And another most common sight, the open air cafes which ring the square offer up a number of delightful goodies.

Not quite the bagel known and consumed elsewhere, this Krakovian contribution has taken hold in Poland. Don't worry if you don't buy one immediately: carts dot the streets here and in Warsaw (with a higher price, of course).
Horse and Carriage
Tired of walking, try a buggy ride through Krakow.

If the buggy ride doesn't appeal, you always patronize the newer version, courtesy of that oh-so-American invention.
