Photographer's Note

Krakowska in Polish is an adjective in the female form literally translating as “of Krakow”. It may be Kielbasa Krakowska (sausage), but it works also for Ulica Krakowska which means Krakowska Street. Krakowska Street would translate literally as a street leading to Krakow.
Indeed Tarnow is located at the road between two major cities: Krakow and Lviv. If you look at the map (panel in the right) you will notice that the old town has a typical medieval round shape and there are two major streets originating from the old town circle: one leading west to Krakow (ulica Krakowska) and other leading to the east (ulica Lwowska).
The view in this photo presents a fragment of the Krakowska street somewhere between the old town and the railway station.

The church visible in the photo is the Holy Family Church. It has two identical towers.
Built in 1904-1906 in the neogothic style according to the design by Jan Sas-Zubnycki.
Consecrated 1908. It was damaged in the WWII.
More info about the church in Polish only here.
