Photographer's Note

The Cloth Hall in the city of Cracow (Kraków). This is one of the most famous monuments of Krakow. In this photo you can also see the famous cabs. The world's arguably oldest shopping mall has been in business in the middle of Krakow's central Main Market Square for 700 years. After the 1555 fire the Cloth Hall was rebuilt as a splendid Renaissance edifice with an ornate roof adorned with grotesque masks by Santi Gucci. During the 1875-1879 refurbishment the outside arcades and central transepts were added. Nowadays stalls on the ground floor and shops in the arcades mostly sell assorted souvenirs. Upstairs, since the 1880s the Krakow National Museum has exhibited its unparalleled collection of the 19th century Polish art, including Jan Matejko's famous movie-like giant paintings.
