Charm in Krakow

Main Market Square, Old Town, Krakow, Poland  © Doug Hickok

One of the most charming places we experienced in Europe was the historic square of Old Town Krakow at twilight. With the beautiful church of Saint Mary's as a back drop, the vast open area was alive with people savoring the warm summer evening. Young couples enjoyed each other's company surrounded by the romantic glow of street lights, carriages clip-clopped around the square, and restaurants hummed with customers relishing dinner in the evening air... sigh... a place and time which, now, seems so long ago.


  1. Nice photo, and what a lovely description! This is a good layout for your blog.

  7. Bardzo się cieszę, że tak miło i prawdziwie odczułeś atmosferę Krakowa. Jest to piękne miasto i ja tam często bywam. Zdjęcie oddaje jego urok. Dziękuję, że zaspokoiłeś moją ciekawość dotyczą koszulki z polskimi symbolami. Miło mi, że jest z Tobą na zdjęciu :-). Pozdrawiam

  8. i've been here, that's a beautiful big square, great shot

  9. Oh I love this Flipcard format, D!
    This is your second attempt to adopt this layout, isn't it?
    It came alive when you blogged about Santo Bloggio.
    This time is Santo Maria, eh?
    So will we get to see this again when Santo Claus comes to town? ;o)

    I see, it's a Saint concoction.
    Or it's just an insane connection?

    I missed your Douglas Falls post!
    Only came across it with this Flipcard feature turned on.
    That's a good one!! ;o)
    Really good one!
