    My Cracow Pictures - WARNING 200+ photos

    So Today was a nice day, so I decided to take a small bicycle tour around the Old Town, and make some pictures/vids, so everyonw will be able to see some nice places.

    From the help of wikipedia Ill also write something about the places/buildings you will see in this "small" tour pictory

    Krakˇw, in English also spelled Krakow or Cracow, pronounced is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland, and is a popular tourist location, containing a World Heritage Site in the historic centre. Situated on the Vistula river (Polish: Wisła) in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Krakˇw has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural and artistic life, and is one of Poland's most important economic centres. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596.
    The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Poland's second most important city. It has grown out from a hamlet on Wawel Hill, and was reported as a busy trading centre of Slavonic Europe in 965.[4] With the emergence of the Second Polish Republic, Krakˇw restored its role as a major academic and cultural centre with the establishment of new universities.

    I'll start not with the Old Town, but with "Podgˇrze", where there was a Jewish Ghetto during the WWII.
    Some Jewish Memorial - notice the wall Geraman's made to look like Jewish gravestones, that's the last wall standing.

    St Joseph's church, built 1905-1909

    The Church view from the entrance to "Bednarski Park" and later the park itself.

    "Interesting built" You can see the word "Auschwitz" and later "Wieliczka"(Wieliczka a place close to Cracow, there is a world known salt mine...
