Currently, there are 16 retail projects with a total area of 602,500 sq m in Krakow agglomeration. Compared to other Polish cities, Krakow is ranked sixth in terms of retail stock, following cities such as Tri City, Wroclaw or Poznan. With the amount of retail space at the level of 288 sq m per 1,000 inhabitants, the Krakow agglomeration is the least saturated region among the largest Polish cities. The retail vacancy rate in Krakow amounted to 3.5% in H1 2018 and has dropped by 1.8 pp Y-o-Y. The largest retail projects in Krakow are Bonarka (91,000 sq m of GLA), Galeria Bronowice (60,300 sq m of GLA), Galeria Krakowska (60,000 sq m of GLA), Zakopianka (59,300 sq m of GLA), M1 Krakow (50,000 sq m of GLA), Serenada (42,000 sq m of GLA) and Galeria Kazimierz (34,600 sq m of GLA). There is only one small-scale project currently under construction – Atut Ruczaj (6,800 sq m of GLA). Shopping streets in Krakow are considered to be the most developed in the whole country and they can successfully compete with shopping centres. Krakow's Old Town, surrounded with historical city walls, is an important retail concentration area. The main shopping streets include Florianska and Grodzka, which connect major landmarks of the city – the Krakow Barbican and the Wawel Castle which provide the tourist traffic that generates a significant element of turnover for the shops located in the centre of the city.
