Towards the outer side of the cloth hall, there are some museums and art galleries. Apart from that one could find some interesting places to eat and enjoy the meal with brilliant surroundings.   More from European Diaries...

I noticed this hanging knife inside Renaissance Sukiennice Cloth Hall. There were some of these things all around the building and I am sure there must be some significance why this knife is hanging just close to the entry gate and one of the pillars.

Notice these faces which were carved on the pillars of Renaissance Sukiennice Cloth Hall. I am not sure what the significance is and I wish I had accompanied any guide to know better about the place.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -


  1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter
  2. Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
