According to the Project for Public Spaces org Krakow's Rynek is the world's best square!

The largest square in Europe also happens to be the best. Rynek Glowny ("Grand Square") is so dynamic, it pulls you in from anywhere in the city. All roads in Krakow lead you here, and the closer you get, the livelier the streetlife becomes. There is so much going on in this square--at least twenty different attractions at any given time--that it makes our "Power of Ten" rule seem inadequate.

It "won" with Plaza Hidalgo, Mexico City, Piazza Navona, Rome, and even with Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Covent Gardens, and Leicester Square.

We've been there!

The largest..? Jan 23, 2006

It's a beautiful place indeed, but is it really Europe's largest one? I did not have that impression.
