Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Southern Poland / Lesser Poland Province / Krakow / Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square
Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square serves as the largest medieval square in Europe and the gravitational center of Krakow. Established in 1257, the year the city received its charter, the square sits in the heart of Krakow's World Heritage-listed Old Town. See well-preserved palaces, churches, and townhouses. Stand where Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a famed freedom fighter in Poland and America, announced an uprising against foreign domination in 1794. Over the years, the square has served as a stage for political demonstrations, public celebrations, and an annual Christmas market.
