Cracow’a Main Market Square is not only an urban area of outstanding cultural value, magnified by the unique architectural monuments, but also a commercial centre, an open show-room and a public area of great utility to Cracow. The remains of the medieval trading stalls were discovered in 1963, when the paving was substituted with flagstones, whereas after 2003 archelogists unearthed, among other things, the cellars of Kramy Bogate (The Rich Stalls) and Kramy Wielkiej Wagi (Stalls of Great Importance). The archeologists’ work conducted in the centre of a large city evoked great emotions and have led to discussions about the use of the area. The debate lasted several years and involved scientists, politicians and the media. This resulted in the creation of a modern, multimedia museum below the level of the ground.
