Photographer's Note

I had planned to post something else today, but after my last photo showing the Wisła river in Kraków, Craig (macjake) complained that it didn't show enough of the walls of Wawel hill, the most famous place in Poland.

So I searched my archive and found this almost forgotten photo showing as much of the walls as I could possibly manage without a drone.

Wawel hill is the seat of the former Royal Palace and a cathedral where most Polish kings are buried. You can see the towers of the Royal Archcathedral Basilica of Saints Stanislaus and Wenceslaus on the Wawel Hill (królewska bazylika archikatedralna śś. Stanisława i Wacława na Wawelu) to the left. Somewhere behind, not seen from here, is the Palace. There has been a cathedral at Wawel since the 11th century. The construction of the present cathedral, the third one, started in the 14th century.

Here is a larger version.

A closer view of the Wawel walls can be seen in a workshop.

I have earlier shown this photo of a Wawel wall with the compulsory postcard as a workshop.
