Krakow is changing all the time and individual stores with real character are opening up week in week out so it shouldn't be a problem to find what you're after (or a nice surprise that you weren't expecting!). Of course if you prefer the shopping mall experience then Galeria Kazimierz, Galeria Krakowska and the newly opened Bonarka City Centre are essential ports of call.
Extraordinarily helpful and knowledgeable staff. They helped my wife and me select books that added a depth to our second visit to Poland. Their appreciation of literature was a good for history (me) as fiction (my wife). Thanks for your help!
Absolutely perfect place to browse or buy!
bombastyczne, multikolorowe skarpetki i skarpetko podobne rzeczy ! Skarpetki nawet dla maluszków :)
The ladies that work at this store are very snooty and make shopping there an unpleasant experience. I came in to buy some gifts and was never greeted or offered help. Instead, one employee whisperer to another, then they both stared me up and down. Two days earlier same thing happened to me but I was dumb enough to buy a necklace. This time I just walked out and went down the street to another jewelry store where the staff was polite and I bought 6 pieces of jewelry there. The staff at Boruni should learn some proper customer service etiquette or they will lose business to other competitors which there are plenty of in Krakow.
love this place!!! especially the oysters & scallops. so hard to find fresh like this in Krakow! and there's such a lovely atmosphere.
The perfect place to find a new book! Fantastic for foreigners who love to read but have trouble finding books written in English - diverse selection of literature in the English language (also Spanish & French & maybe something else). Witek was very friendly, intelligent and helped me to choose a Stanisław Lem book to read. I was impressed by the low prices having found English translations of Polish books relatively hard to find and quite expensive elsewhere. As a former English teacher I was also impressed by the selection of language learning materials and I wish I had known about this shop before! Will be back for more novels and for materials to help me improve my Polish :)
