Photographer's Note

I went to Krakow with my wife & a couple of friends, this is a night shot of the famous St Mary's church inn the main square, the temperature went down to -21.
Krakow's original St. Mary's Church was destroyed during the 13th-century Tartar raids; rebuilding began relatively soon after.
The present church was built on the foundations of its predecessor, which was built before the town plan of 1257. This is why it stands slightly askew from the main square.
The new St. Mary's Church was completed in 1397; the towers were added in the 15th century.
In the 20th century, St. Mary's Church made an appearance in the film Schindler's List.
