Rynek Glowny Krakowie, or Grand Square, is the largest market square in Europe. After the Mongolian hordes destroyed Krakow in 1241, the main square was rebuilt and expanded in 1257. It is, and has been, the central business, entertainment, and social area of Krakow. Many open air events, cafes, and people fill the square year round. Krakow's chief landmarks fill the square. The 16th-century Renaissance Cloth Hall in the center, the 13th-century Gothic Town Hall Tower, the 14th-century Gothic basilica of the Virgin Mary's, and the tiny church of St. Adalbert's whose parts date back to the 11th century.
Gothic (1200 - 1350 CE)
