Surrounded by medieval tenements, one of the largest historic squares in Europe. Krakow’s Main Square.
Nowadays, the buildings house mainly restaurants, hotels and cafes. Each and every in a different style. You can find here court-palace style, region-specific as well as exclusive and modern-design interiors. Your window looks out towards the Square and Sukiennice (once a merchant’s house), gothic-style basilica, the Town Hall and a small Romanesque church. And under the surface of the Square you will find…the largest multimedia museum in the world.
It’s just a stone’s throw away from Wawel and the Vistula River, where you will discover a number of places boasting of beautiful views from the windows and terraces all around you.
The Main Square and the bend of Vistula offer you many possibilities to organise a wedding here. Starting from a seated party with your friends to theme-wedding with a dint of Polish nobility history, or a regional style based on the look of the interiors and the local dishes, to a grandiose ball organised for several hundreds of guests in the chambers of the palace or in an exclusive ballroom in the hotel.
Moreover, Polish wedding cannot do without music and dancing until dawn. A band of several musicians playing covers or a DJ make the music for those on the dance floor.Polish wedding also means a lavish cuisine. Apart from being served a four-course dinner, you will get here one-to-three additional hot dishes during the party. Also plenty of different cool snacks and desserts. At the Polish wedding party no one is allowed to leave before eating their share! Let it be Polish traditional, Mediterranean, or a mixed cuisine that you choose.
Krakow is also the city of churches. With every epoch that came in, at least, one temple surrounding the Main Square had been built. The wedding couple can therefore choose the scenery for their solemnisation – which can be held within embellished Baroque, ponderous Romanesque, or Renaissance interiors. Bride and Groom together with the wedding guests can take a hackney cab to get from the church to the wedding party venue.
Vicinity of hotels, hostels and guest rooms surely is a great advantage of the wedding on Krakow’s Main Square. Should thewedding take place in a palace or a restaurant (not belonging to the hotel), guests at their convenience – be it a walk – can go for repose, and uninterruptedly make sightseeing or spend their time in one of the numerous cafes in the city, right away the next day.
