Every visit to my hometown means photo outings, usually around the Old Town. Among my favorite streets to photograph are the narrow, winding ones. Here are a few of them.
Mikołajska (St. Nicholas Street) dates back to the 13th century and used to be part of a trade route to Kiev. It extends east from the Main Square and connects to the Planty park surrounding the Old Town.
Near Wawel Castle to the south is Kanonicza Street, lined with Renaissance and Baroque houses. These residences once belonged to Krakow’s noblemen and later church canons (hence the name). The quiet Senacka (Senate Street) at the other end of Kanonicza houses the Archaeological Museum of Krakow.
Besides the curvature of the streets, I like the vintage street lamps and decorative doorways.
