The Main Square of Kraków (Rynek Główny) is the heart of the city, and no tourist should miss the opportunity to visit it. Despite its popularity, the square can often feel crowded throughout the day, and locals may complain about the influx of tourists.
To avoid the crowds, it’s best to get up early and head to the square in the morning. While cars are allowed on the Main Square at this time, there are significantly fewer people around, making for a much calmer atmosphere. You may be surprised by the number of people already up at such an early hour, but it’s still possible to take photos without the crowds.
In this photo, you can see the Kraków Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) with the Adam Mickiewicz Monument in the foreground. The sun has just risen over the roofs, casting the town’s silhouette on the walls of the Cloth Hall. The Main Square of Kraków is truly a must-visit destination for any tourist, and getting up early is a great way to avoid the crowds and appreciate the beauty of the square.
