In 1038, Krakow, was the capitol of Poland with Wawel Royal castle, becoming the residence of Polish kings.
The Cloth Hall structure is dated back into the 13th century, it’s importance was to be the center of the east-west trading post for textiles, fabrics, silk, leather and spices.
Nowadays the Cloth Hall Market place is surrounded by old cafe’s and restaurants, horse drawn carriages for tourists; just a pulsing center of the town . Well somehow it reminded me a bit of Venice just without the canals.
Krakow has become a combination of old and new generations in it’s own very unique character. It’s old history still remains, yet there is such a fresh lifelines continuing to change the city’s old burdens of the 2nd World War.
