Not So Wordless Wednesday: Krakow #3



At Krakow, Poland's city center is the Sukiennece, or the Cloth Hall, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Built in the 15th century, it was once the hub for international trade.  Now it has hundreds of booths full of Polish crafts, jewelry, and clothing.  Not at the best prices, mind you, but it is all here in one place.  If you ever visit Krakow, this is where you go for retail therapy!

There's a place like this in Milan. I couldn't believe the prices! I see you're reading Maus, I'm excited to hear what you think of it.

Whenever I see these pictures of Krakow, I am always so amazed by the architecture and the little finishing touches in all the buildings. Everything looks so clean and orderly, and it all looks so well maintained. I would love to visit at some point!

Pretty! I bet it would be easy to spend a lot of money there.

Wow, that does look like quite the place. I'd love to walk around there although I'm not so sure I'd like the crowds.
