Big-brand fashion mall overlooking the Vistula
Word to the wise: Don't plan on eating here - so far it's mostly fast food joints and bland cafés. Head into central Kazimierz instead.
Just 15 minutes' walk from the Old Town, on the west bank of the Vistula, Galeria Kazimierz is a more stylish answer to Galeria Krakowia. Among its 130-plus stores are all the big international fashion names – H&M, Zara, Bennetton, Pierre Cardin – alongside Polish favourites such as Cubus, Reserved and Cropp.
Fashion is undoubtedly the focus, but you'll also find flagship branches of popular jewellery, electronics and entertainment stores, while Alma Market (Poland's answer to Harrods) offers gourmet food and drink from around the world. When you're done shopping, catch a movie at Cinema City or relax in the Pure health and fitness centre.
