Wawel Cathedral in Krakow (Katedra Wawelska)

Little Big Krakow | Poland

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.

Wawel | Kraków, Poland

The Wawel, residence of the Polish kings for so many centuries, was still enlightened and offered, together with the clouds, a breathtaking scene. I set up my tripod in the mud of the Vistula river bank and just as I finished shooting, the lights went off. I guess, once more I was incredibly lucky, but next time I rather wake up 10 minutes earlier.
