Waiting for the #EuroMeetup19 in Getz, I want to share some more memories of #EuroMeetup18 - Shopping in Kraków is today subject
What happen when you visit a small, ancient and beautiful city in Europe, like Kraków is? What the Local Guides do, in a few hours of free time?
We walk on the city center, of course, taking photos, and discovering shops and street markets.
Old Kraków is a really a small town, that you can cross in minutes for reaching Rynek Główny - The main square, surrounded by beautiful Churches. In the center of the square, Sukiennice, the Handicraft and folk art mall, is offering a huge choice of products, like the small boxes, made in wood, of the first photo. But also (this is what I like more) a lot of amber. Necklaces, bracelets, of all sizes, are sold in many small shops. I can stay hours, watching the shops. The space is crowded, as you can see in the picture here below. Full of tourists, that are trying to buy a small piece of handicraft.
In the past I worked in Kraków for many months, so these small craft products already fill my house, but it's always worth adding another. Don't you agree with me?
But of course, this is not the only open market in Kraków. 250 meters walk is what you need to reach Plac Szczepański. The street market in there is completely different, more for local than for tourist. What they sell in there is normally bigger, difficult to put in a luggage or in a backpack, but just as beautiful, and sometimes much more interesting.
Kraków is a city where the music is in every corner, do not be surprised to find a violin in the market stalls.
I can write for hours, pages and pages, about the fun, the beauty, of the European Meet-up in Krakow, at the moment I just want to know three things:
1) I am curious about the Local guides that was with me and @AntonellaGr in Kraków: what kind of shopping did you did? @INGA1 , @TorM , @NatalkaR , @davide7O , @LudwigGermany , @barrazacarlos , @ikaramon
3) I am curious about all of you, Fellow Local guides. How is your street market?
Can't wait for your Feedback. Have a walk in the music of the beautiful Kraków
Have a fun
