Poland

These postcards which I just received today from one of postcrossers from Poland. She is Ania "Coverted" thru direct swap.

1. Kalwaria, Zebrzydowska


Kalwaria, Zebrzydowska is a town in Southern Poland with 4429 inhabitants as of 2007. The town was named after the religious complex-calvary and its founder Governor of Krakow Mikotaj Zebrzydowski in December 1, 1602. The Kalwaria Zebrzydowska park is a Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape Complex and Pilgrimage park, was added in 1999 to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


2. Cracow- Wawel- The Royal Castle




In this postcard is the City of Polish Kings-Cracow. Cracow or Krakow is the 2nd largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland and a popular tourist destination. In 1978 UNESCO placed Cracow's old town on the list of World Heritage Sites. Cracow is a pearl of Polish architecture and Polish history.
The Gothic Wawel Castle is situated on the left bank of the biggest river in Poland, Vistula River.




In this postcard is the Norbertine Sisters Nunnery in Cracow. In the city there are more than 120 Roman Catholics Churches and more than 25 abbeys. One of the amazing feature about this city is that the largest medieval town square in Europe is the Main Market Square in Cracow.
