In the Middle Ages it was a place where the roads crossed and led to a places as Krakow, Wieliczka(the salt route) and towards Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. In times when Podgorze was a autonomous city, square was called Main but after when it become a part of Krakow city, it has changed it’s name to Podgorze Market Square.
It’s worth to pay attention to unusual tringle-shaped square.
By Podgorze Square there’s the Roman Catholic Church of St. Joseph. Built in 1905-1909 is a perfect example of gothic architecture.
Main creator-Jan Sas-Zubrzycki alluded in his work to soaring towers of Mariacki Church.
Around the square there’s a lot of benches which are inviting all the walkers to take some rest.
Close by to Bernatka footbridge, surrounded by historic town houses where you can find for example local ice-cream shops – rarely visited but very interested place in Krakow.
If you’re one of Guests who enjoy long walks and going to pass by Podgorze Market Square coming back from Kopiec Kraka, I recommend you to look at this part of the city as an antique, interesting, full of history place.
