Hi TE friends
This is a very beautiful Castle in Krakow
I hope you like it and I wish you a great weekend.
The Gothic Wawel Castle in Kracow in Poland was built at the behest of Casimir III the Great and consists of a number of structures situated around the central courtyard.
In the 14th century it was rebuilt by Jogaila and Jadwiga of Poland. Their reign saw the addition of the tower called the Hen’s Foot (Kurza Stopka) and the Danish Tower.
The Jadwiga and Jogaila Chamber, in which the sword Szczerbiec, was used in coronation ceremonies, is exhibited today and is another remnant of this period. Other structures were developed on the hill during that time as well, in order to serve as quarters for the numerous clergy, royal clerks and craftsmen.
Defensive walls and towers such as Jordanka, Lubranka, Sandomierska, Tęczyńska, Szlachecka, Złodziejska and Panieńska were erected in the same period. From Wikipedia

very nice shot, the castle is well presented and looks fantastic, with sharpness good colors and light. the only thing I don't like is that little green bump in the FG, it helps with depth but is distracting to me
anyways nice shot

um castelo muito bonito esse mesmo, e curioso, pois percebe-se vários estilos arquitetônicos nele. Interessante esse morrinho de grama na frente também.
Parabéns e Abraço

The tourists & visitors walking around the perimeter add scale to this imposing building. Reasonable sharpness & well composed, with excellent colour. Tfs, and parabens!

it is always so funny for me to see foreigners uploading shots from Krakow. You must have the same feeling when we show photos from Portugal.
Surprisingly I don't have many pictures from Krakow at all even if this place has plenty of opportunities for a photographer and I spent there 5 years of my life. Somehow at that time I was not interested in photography.
So every time I see a shot from Krakow I am so jealous that I did not do that by myself.
This place you present has a very special charm. So full of history but also very unique architecture. You caught it with fine soft colors,
