The Main Market Square in Krakow is the largest medieval square in Europe: 200 m x 200 m; it attracts people from every location of the city, and all roads in old Krakow lead to it.
The square was established in 1257, taking into consideration the buildings already existing, like St. Adalbert's Church, St. John's Church and the Basilica of the Virgin Mary. The layout was modelled after the layout of a Roman military camp (Castrum).
Some Krakow legends and many historic events are linked to the Main Market Square; nearly all the tenement houses and palaces around thìe dquare are historic buildings which are hundreds of years old.
The square s also a meeting place, for tourists and for locals.
