Krakow

Plac Nowy

  Kazimierz         19 Jun 2019

This historic square was a Jewish market in the pre-war days, with its rotunda serving as a kosher slaughterhouse. Today you'll still find butcher shops inside, while fast food windows line the exterior - mostly selling 'zapiekanki,' the local street food. In the open trading stalls surrounding the roundhouse produce and junk are sold daily. It's a different, often unpredictable scene on the square each morning, but Saturdays are generally junk/antiques, and Sundays are for clothing. Meanwhile, Friday mornings it's a full-on rabbit swap and pigeon fair from 05:30 to 08:00 - one of the most bizarre spectacles you can possibly witness. Other markets begin around 8:00 in the morning (9:00 on Fridays) and generally end by early to mid-afternoon, depending. In the evenings, Plac Nowy turns into one of the best drinking destinations in town, lined with atmospheric bars.
