Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Southern Poland / Lesser Poland Province / Krakow / Sukiennice (Cloth Hall)
Located in the middle of the main square, Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) is one of the city's most recognizable architectural landmarks. The Renaissance building was once the center of international clothing trade (thus its name). In the final decades of the 19th century, it was converted into an art museum and became a major cultural venue. The grand halls house one of the largest permanent exhibits of Polish art, arranged by historical period and theme. Take a self-guided tour of the upper-floor galleries to see noted works by Josef Chelmonski, Aleksander Gierymski, Jan Matejko, and Jacek Malczewski. The ground floor features a busy market where you can purchase handmade crafts and souvenirs. Work out when and for how long to visit Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) and other Krakow attractions using our handy Krakow day trip planning site.
