Photographer's Note

about bardejov: The earliest written record dates back to 1241 and can be seen on the yellowed pages of the Ipatyiev Monastery Chro nicle. The extensive territory of "terra Bartfa" can be found in written records dating back to 1247.
At the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries colonists from Silesia settled down near the settlement lying on the main communication route. In 1320 King Robert granted them exten sive rights, which speeded up the process of transformation of the chartered village "Bardejov" into a town.
In 1352 the town obtained the right to hold the 8-day fair and the guarantee of freedom for all who took part in it.
The safety of trade and craftsmanship and the town's independence were protected by the town fortifications with their impregnable gates, massive turrets and water moats.
