Galeria Kazimierz definitely looks more stylish than your regular American-type mall and apart from the hordes of brand name shopping stores, such as Zara, Puma, Quicksilver and Hugo Boss, there are also plenty of upscale eateries to visit (...though unhealthy eaters fear not, KFC and friends can be found inside as well!). In total Galeria Kazimierz boasts 38,150 square metres of air-conditioned shopping space, but once you're laden down with bags full of designer labels, you might want to take a break at the centre's state-of-the-art cinema, which shows all the latest blockbusters in their original language. All-in-all you could easily spend a whole day indoors without braving the Krakow weather! If you don't feel like walking why not take advantage of the free Galeria Kazimierz bus service, which will pick you up from the Wawel or around the Planty gardens.
Terrific. Good selection of shops and a big plus having the cinema. Parking is also easy underground, and you can have your car washed quite reasonably while you do your shopping. Good Alma store (one of the biggest in Krakow I think) with a fine selection of food.
Note you can also get free internet access just outside the cinema. Lots of people seem to use it, judging by the number of laptops around! Also, seems to be a bit of a venue for Dungeons and Dragons type meetings, if you're into that sort of thing!
Of all the shopping centres, I prefer Galeria Kazimierz the most, because it has a cinema. That means while my wife does the shopping I have somewhere to escape to! I can also get a decent steak at Jeffs.
Their quality of stores is good, although quantity is somewhat lacking. It came in real handy with our study abroad group because it was 5 min. away from the Collegium Medicina. It has a really nice grocery store, food court and movie theatre. Close to the river and Kazimirez.
Galeria Kazimierz is a good place to hang out on the weekend, not just for shopping (though that's great there too!) but for people-watching, seeing a movie, etc. it's great when it's cold and snowing outside and you just want to spend a day indoors without getting bored.
some good stores in Galeria Kazimierz. Alma is great place for fresh meat, fruit and veg. and even sells HP sauce! Clothes wise you've got Puma, Zara, and H&M. Polish stores House and Diverse are not bad either. If you're a mall rat you'll also enjoy just checking out the hot girls and going to the cinema
