Little Big Krakow | Poland

Wawel Cathedral in Krakow (Katedra Wawelska)

As a child I was always fascinated by city models or miniatures. And just when I entered the inner courtyard of the Wawel Castle in Krakow, I saw a model of the very same thing. Not only that, but the miniature is positioned in a way that you can capture reality and its copy in a single photograph. Sure thing, I had to do that.

Do you know any other places where you can enjoy such a combination of model and reality?
