While we were in Poland, the teen got my goat with a faux vocabulary funny. We were discussing the fact that Krakow has the second greatest concentration of Catholic churches, only exceeded by Rome. Seriously... there were two of them just on our block in the old town center where the hotel was located. And an outline of the remains of one that was dismantled about 150 yrs ago.
St. Andrew's church above, built in the 12th century, was used as a fortress during Mongol invasions because the walls are a couple meters thick in the lower part of the structure.
The pictures above and below are of Sts. Peter and Paul church, the view out of our hotel window. I took the above shot our first day when it poured buckets from the sky, with temps in the low 60s, and we slogged around in wet shoes all day.
The picture below was taken on our last full day when there wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was a balmy 85. This church was built in the early 1600s. I love the statues of the 12 apostles who adorn the pedestals along the front gate.
