Main Shopping Centers in Krakow.

Big shopping malls arrived to Krakow in the 21st century and as elsewhere they have proved an immediate success. Now Krakow boasts five full-fledged shopping malls of which Galeria Krakowska and Galeria Kazimierz enjoy central location, while Krakow Plaza and M1 are strategically situated halfway between Krakow’s central Old Town historic district and the city’s eastern major residential and industrial area of Nowa Huta. 

Krakow’s shopping malls vie for the customer’s time and money with big retail centers positioned at major access roads to the city’s downtown. They are clusters of varied retail outlets, from big to small, with a hypermarket and a mini-mall as a core, sometimes complemented by a multiplex and/or other amusement facilities .
