Photographer's Note

Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland.


Corpus Christi Basilica, located in Krakow district of Kazimierz, Poland; is a Gothic Church founded by Kazimierz the Great in 1335. The basilica was erected in stages beginning in 1340 until about the mid-15th century, and was intended as a monastery, which explains the large size plot on which it stands and the presence of a cemetery next to it.
In 1404 King Wladys³aw Jagiello had given it to the Canons Regular of the Lateran congregation brought in from Klodzko.
