The Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) is a huge market hall (first in the world, btw) was built in the 13th century in the middle of Main Market Square (Rynek Główny). It was, enlarged in the 14th century in the Gothic style and remodelled again and one more time in the mid-16th century after Renaissance fashion.

This building became the city’s showpiece facility hosting grand balls and patriotic celebrations. Its location and character made the space on the first floor of the Sukiennice a perfect place for the National Museum in Krakow (19th Century Polish Art Gallery).

The Museum includes paintings and sculptures representing the era and the most important trends in Polish art of the nineteenth century. Almost everything by Jan Matejko here is rightly considered a national treasure, and the collection also includes works by Jacek Malczewski, Józef Chełmoński and Stanisław Witkiewicz, as well as Władysław Podkowiński's famous 'Frenzy' from 1894.

19th Century Polish Art Gallery is like a small slice of the Louvre in Kraków, but without the crowds. Enjoy a coffee at their cafe with one of a kind views of the Market Square and Saint Mary's Basilica.

Poland also is one of the places to be visited. In this zone for 3 days " and I had the opportunity to visit. Krakow Stare Miasto (Old Town - Old Town) this means that all is to protect the historic fabric within the city walls.
the upper floors usually domicile(Home-Hotel-B & B) places, while the lower/basement is bordered by the cafe, market and shops. late teenagers is able to enjoy. cafe-pub-prices in bars than in Western European countries is accepted. People are warm-blooded and, in general, honest arrived.

polonya da ziyaret edilecek yerlerin başında gelmektedir. 3 gün bu bölgede konakladım ve gezme imkanım oldu. stare miasto kraków (old town - eski şehir) anlamına gelmekte ve bu şehir sur içinde tüm tarihi dokusunu korumaktadır.
üst katlar genelde ikametgah(ev-motel-pansiyon) yerleri iken alt/zemin katlar kafe market ve dükkanlar ile çevrelidir. gençler geç saatlere kadar eğlenmektedir. kafe-pub-barlarda fiyatlar batı avrupa ülkerelerine göre makuldur. İnsanları sıcak kanlı ve genel olarak dürüst geldi.

Zdecydowanie warto odwiedzić. Poza samą galerią dodatkową atrakcją jest balkon Cafe Szął, z którego mozemy podziwiać Rynek.

A worthy collection of art in a beautifully renovated interiors. Brilliantly chosen colors of the walls but there is something wrong with the lighting because it is impossible to admire the paintings hung wyzewj when varnish bounce flash. Despite this, a must in Krakow!

Zacna kolekcja dzieł sztuki w pięknie odnowionych wnętrzach. Genialnie dobrane kolory ścian ale coś jest nie tak z oświetleniem bo nie sposób podziwiać obrazy wyzewj powieszone gdy w werniksie odbijają się lampy. Mimo to punkt obowiązkowy w Krakowie!

Polish paintings (and a statue of the sleeping dog) from Romanticism to the end of the 19th century. They are 4 rooms, each devoted to one year. At the entrance of each is an information board with the characteristics of the period. For images, however, no info is not just a name, and who painted it. From an artistic point of view I was impressed together for about four to five ... it's not much. The rest are just normal I would say the average paintings, as they often need a lot of the castles. View from the Cloth Hall Square is, the patio can not go.

polské obrazy (a soška spícího psa) od romantizmu po konec 19. století. Jsou to 4 místnosti, každá věnovaná jednomu období. U vchodu každé je informační tabule s charakteristikou daného období. U obrazů ovšem žádné info není, jen název a kdo jej namaloval. Z uměleckého hlediska mě zaujaly dohromady asi čtyři až pět...to není moc. Zbytek jsou prostě normální řekl bych průměrné obrazy, jak jich bývá plno třeba na zámcích. Výhled ze Sukiennice na náměstí není, na terasu nelze jít.

Visited at the beginning of November 2012. Really nice and clean. I did not know Krakow and I was impressed by the beauty of the city, and above the old town. Very well taken care of. The square has so many great monuments. Superb evening when darkness falls natural light and the headlights are turned on to illuminate the monuments. Here stand the white, blue and red. In the main and central structure on the market, with many stalls selling traditional Polish crafts. There are also carriages with horses. Very beautiful and elegant 18th-century style. The horses are great and well cared for. Nearby there are many places to eat with just a few Euros. The position is perfect: walk turns around the old town in half a day.

Visitata ad inizio Novembre 2012. Veramente bella e pulita. Non conoscevo Cracovia e sono rimasto impressionato dalla bellezza della citt? e soprattutto del centro storico. Molto ben curata. La piazza ? grandissima con tanti monumenti. Stupenda di sera quando cala la luce naturale e vengono accesi i fari che illuminano i monumenti. Qui risaltano il bianco , il blu e il rosso. Nella struttura principale e centrale c'? il mercatino , con tante bancarelle che vendono i classici prodotti artigianali polacchi. Ci sono anche le carrozze con i cavalli. Molto belle ed eleganti in stile del secolo 18esimo. I cavalli sono grandi e ben curati. Nei dintorni ci sono molti posti dove mangiare con pochi euro. La posizione ? perfetta : a piedi si gira tutto il centro storico in mezza giornata.

I like going to the Cloth Hall. Whenever I have a problem or a difficult day I go there I sit down and look at your favorite images. I'm very interested in art, so being around so many beautiful works automatically relaxes me. I am glad that finally, after so many years again regained galleries Cloth Hall. I encourage everyone to visit this place. :)

Bardzo lubię chodzić do Sukiennic. Zawsze jak mam problem, albo ciężki dzień ide tam siadam i patrze się na swoje ulubione obrazy. Bardzo interesuję się sztuką, dlatego przebywanie wśród tak wielu pięknych dzieł automatycznie mnie odpręża. Ciesze się, że w końcu po tylu latach znowu odzyskaliśmy galerie Sukiennice. Zachęcam każdego do odwiedzenia tego miejsca. :)
