Photographer's Note

The Renaissance Cloth Hall in Krakow is one of the city's most recognizable icons.

It is the central feature of the Main Market Square in the Krakow Old Town (listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978). It was once a major centre of international trade. Traveling merchants met there to discuss business and to barter. During its golden age in the 15th century, it was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the East – spices, silk, leather and wax – while Krakow itself exported textiles, lead, and salt from the Wieliczka Salt Mine.
