Photos from Poland (Krakow, 1997)

A legend attributes Kraków's founding to the mythical ruler Krakus, who built it above a cave occupied by a dragon, Smok Wawelski. It was reported as a busy trading center of Slavonic Europe by the end of the 10th century and rapidly grew into a major academic and cultural center.
