Krakow

Art & Antiques

share
Art abounds in Kraków, and in addition to the galleries proliferating the Old Town, local artists shop their work to tourists right on the market square, and along ul. Pijarska on either side of the Floriańska Gate. Remember, if you are taking original art that is more than 50 years old and of a potentially high value, you'll need the proper paperwork and permissions (see Customs). Most proper dealers can provide this straight-away, but you may want to check before opening your wallet. Below we list the most interesting commercial art galleries in town; see the Culture section for more cultural art gallery listings.

There is no shortage of possibilities for purchasing antiques in Kraków. Serious shoppers will find that the best items end up in the antique stores ('Antyki,' 'Antykwariat') that abound all over Kazimierz and the Old Town with one of the best places to prowl for lost treasure being ulica Józefa in Kazimierz. Knowledgeable dealers offer prices comparable to those in the rest of Europe, however there are still bargains aplenty in the city's markets if your interest is more in finding an odd souvenir while having a unique cultural experience than finding an undervalued 19th century artefact. Plac Nowy is home to daily junk-peddlers, but the real bounty is revealed during Plac Targowy's Sunday morning flea market where every piece of trash has a price and haggling is compulsory.
