Last update: January 11, 2024

1. Skład Tanich Książek

"A really nice book shop offering a wide range of titles on different subjects. Its location in the heart of the old town of Krakow, makes it easily accessible. All the books are brand new and sold at massively discounted prices. All the titles that they have on offer are in Polish. However, they have awesome albums with amazing pictures from different parts of Poland. These would make either nice presents for family and friends, or coffee table book mementos from your trip. The bookstore also has a very good selection of coloring books for both children and adults. And for those able to read Polish, they are certainly in luck."

2. Główna Księgarnia Naukowa

"Actually, it is really fantastic. On previous visits to Kraków. And living quite close, even walking past many times - I never went in - thinking it would only have popularist nonsense. In fact, that was not at all true; although, the same complany seems to have another bookshop twenty metres away, which might be a little more like that - but is probably equally as good. In the most quoetly unspoken way - the serice is mord than superb. Serinely and sureally, fantastic. It is a perfect complement, to the other bookshops in the immediate area, just one, two, or three blocks away, or five minutes walk - ALL of which are extraordinarily good in their own way. And, I mean, all eight of them. Coffee is 1 zł, by the way."
