Photographer's Note

St. Adalbert Church is the oldest church in Krakow, The church was built in the 11th century. It stands at the south-eastern corner of the biggest medieval market square in Europe, The church preceded the Square by nearly a century. The interior of the church is cramped, relative to its larger exterior. The floor level is situated under the present level of the Square by as much as a couple of meters, which reflects the overlaying of the subsequent surfaces of the plaza with pavement originally adjusted to the two existing churches (including St. Wojciech’s), Therefore by standing at the foot of this diminutive church, you'll soon notice that something's a trifle odd.. The church was partially reconstructed in the Baroque style between 1611-1618.
Throughout the early history of Kraków the Church was a place of worship first visited by merchants travelling from across Europe. It was a place where citizens and nobility used to meet.
