Photographer's Note

The Church of St. Wojciech (English: St. Adalbert's Church), located to the side of the Main Market Square in Old Town, Krakσw, is one of the oldest stone churches in Poland. Its almost one thousand year old history goes back to the beginning of the Polish Romanesque architecture of the early Middle Ages.

The church was built in the 11th century. It stands at the south-eastern corner of the biggest medieval market square in Europe,[1] demarcated in 1257. The church preceded the Square by nearly a century. The interior of the church is cramped, relative to its larger exterior. The floor level is situated under the present level of the Square, which reflects the overlaying of the subsequent surfaces of the plaza with pavement originally adjusted to the two existing churches (including St. Wojciech’s). The church was partially reconstructed in the Baroque style between 1611-1618.
