I felt sure I wouldn't be short of architectural inspiration around Kraków and my expectations were more than met as we explored the city. The most colourful building we visited was St. Mary's Basilica in the market square. The exterior proved a challenge to photograph as it was surrounded by bustling crowds of tourists by day. The area was much quieter during my early morning walks but at that time the sun was behind the towers, making a good exposure quite a challenge. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop I've been able to create an image that works but it took quite a lot of work! Inside, the basilica is a riot of colour and gold leaf - so different from British churches but certainly photogenic. The rest of my photos in this post were taken as we explored, some during my early morning strolls and the rest during our day trips out around the city.
An architectural gem
