While walking around Kraków’s Main Market Square, many people are not aware of the true treasure underneath. Join us in the mysterious, underground world, where you can explore the oldest history of the most important public space in Kraków – the Main Market Square. Thanks to the work of archaeologists, 6,000 square meters of the underground Market Square have been made available to the general public to showcase the city’s 1000-year old history. Wandering down the ancient roads among reconstructed huts, a blacksmith’s workshop and the foundations of the first Cloth Hall from the early medieval period, one can almost hear life that were filling the air many centuries ago. Additional attractions of the tour are the multimedia show and the exhibit of authentic objects from Kraków’s historical past that were unearthed during archaeological excavations. The “Following the Traces of European Identity of Kraków” exhibition was opened in September 2010. The archeological works that were planned to take a few months lasted for five years, initiating the exhibit in 2005. Owing to the archaeological discoveries, we are now able to explore the ancient history of the region, and especially town life.
