Kraków – Photo Gallery

Kraków. Some info from Wikipedia: The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Poland’s second most important city. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Slavonic Europe in 965. The city’s full official name is Stołeczne Królewskie Miasto Kraków, or “Royal Capital City of Kraków”. 

Kraków (Polish pronunciation: [ˈkrakuf] also Cracow, or Krakow (US English /ˈkrækaʊ/, British English /ˈkrækɒv/) is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River (Polish: Wisła) in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland’s most important economic hubs.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

I posted a few photos for this challenge already in a post about Israel, but felt like sharing these from Krakow as well. Those of you that follow the blog know that I recently was in Krakow for some model photographing, but Krakow has much more to offer than just beautiful women. Please enjoy this gallery with architectural photos where I’ve tried to capture some light and street scenes.
