Editor's review

Bonarka City Center is a colourful splash on the shopping scene. Besides being brand new as of November 2009, it's one of the largest shopping centres in Central Europe. Bonarka is home to 270 stores, including more than 30 restaurants and cafes. Big names include Empik, Zara, Adidas-Nike, Pierre Cardin and the "hipermarket" Auchan. One of our favorite spots to grab a coffee is at Mont Blanc at the fountain in the middle of the mall. Parking spaces are plentiful and the shops many.

I visit Bonarka City Centre whenever I visit Krakow, 6 times in the last 2 years. It's a great shopping mall, not just because of its sheer physical size but more because of its wide variety of products offered for sale within its 270 shops. Walking through its wide corridors looking what's on display in the shop windows, particularly when outside is too cold to venture effortlessly is itself an exercise in physical exertion. Take the escalator to the top floor and you'll find the best selection of cold or hot drinks and take-away food you can ever imagine. Or why don't you opt for a table and take a full meal from one of the restaurants available?

Krakow has two other full size shopping malls closer to the centre than Bonarka but...are they comparable to Bonarka? Definitely not. Bonarka is undoubtedly the most modern shopping mall in the whole of Poland. To add to the great service, Bonarka offers a free bus shuttle which leaves from the Rondo at the end of Ul Kalwaryjska and reaches the mall in less than 10 minutes.

A very big shopping center/mall ! with so many shops of clothes, shoes, design and decorations items, computing, travels, .... The range of products is higher that anywhere else as shops are a lot bigger than the same corporated shops located in other shopping center in Cracow.I recommend Tk Maxx for very good shopping of various designers or not products at discounted price.On site, if you wish to have a nice lunch break between shopping, there are many bars and restaurants of many different nationalities where to have unusual and untypical food for lunch. A big supermarket for groceries is also on site. And if you are not tired after shopping in that huge mall, there is a nice way to relax with the big cinema complex where most of recent movies are available on viewing .So, I would recommend that shopping center to everyone.!

Well, this shopping mall is bonkers. I think it's the biggest one I've ever been to. Good selection of shops and cafes. Easy to get lost.

Found it very confusing to find my way around the place, as it is not well signposted! The VIP cinema was OK, though.

Nice place, great service. I was looking for boots. In Polish producer store (I can't remember the name) I found one I could come back to. Reason?: sale persons were so helpful and with initiative that I am not sure if I was impressed more with boots or serivice.

The best shopping mall in and around craow with the best supermarket: Auchan. If it's down to food products, if you can't find it in Auchan you won't find it anywhere.

Reply Sep 28th, 2010

This place is BIG. No, seriously. It's huge! The Auchan alone is the size of a Polish village. Just sayin'

Bonarka has the best cinema in Krakow - you can enjoy their VIP option in big loungers - great for watching 3D movies!

When it opened, I thought it would be a madhouse, but since then it's become quite a nice and calm spot to take a walk, have a coffee and get out the freezin' cold. Auchan's ridiculously big, but if you can't find it there you ain't tryin'.
