The old town square, also referred to as the main market square or the Rynek Glowny, is one of the centres of the historic core of Krakow. The square measures 212m x 195m, making it the largest medieval town square in Europe. At its centre lies the Sukiennice cloth hall, a long building in Renaissance style, nowadays housing gift shops, restaurants and other stalls. On the western side of the old town square is the characteristic Mariacki church with its asymmetric towers.
