Seasonal Star Though it doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy Bar & Books, it definitely helps. Seen through frosted, foggy windows it’s a venue that reveals itself as a place of dark, delicious colors and rarefied air. Occupying the kind of charismatic gatehouse you’d read about in Dickens,...

Old Town With over 60 separate stalls, this one’s the biggie: coiling around ul. Podwale, find dozens of dinky timber chalets specializing in seasonal clutter: hand-carved cats, sinister marionettes, daft woolly hats and sheepskin attire that’s fit for a shepherd.
