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
