Well, there's all kinds of shopping in Krakow. Near the train station there is the Galeria, a slick and glitzy mall that puts our shopping malls to shame. The streets in the Old Town are lined with little boutiques. And here near our hotel is the Kleparz Market with its Monday through Saturday bounty, mini-pyramids of fruit and vegetables, cheese, breads, meats. It deserves a day of exploration to walk its aisles and learn which days certain produce and products are in. In addition to food, there is clothing and a great array of umbrellas, tote bags, and shoes. Two kitchen and housewares kiosks have more gizmos than Bed, Bath, and Beyond. As you can see above, among many other items, crocs have made it to Krakow.
