Photographer's Note

My favorite church in Kraków - the church of Saint. Andrew - is located at Grodzka street, halfway between the Main Market Square and Wawel castle. St. Andrew's offers the finest example of Romanesque architecture in Kraków. Built between 1079 and 1098, it has been a place of worship for 900 years and was used as a refuge and fortress during Tartar invasions. Most of the relics were looted anyway, making a trip inside a bit of a letdown. Remodelled by Baldassare Fontana during the mad-for-all-things-Baroque 18th century, note the pulpit which resembles a boat - typical of the Baroque style.
