Wawel Royal Castle (16th century)
17-MAY-2012

Wawel Royal Castle (16th century)

Part of the royal castle (pronounced "Vavel") is believed to have been built in the 11th century by Kazimierz the Restorer, but the current Renaissance castle was constructed in the first half of the 16th century. Poland's royalty resided here until the capital of the country was moved to Warsaw.

This was shot from a horse-drawn carriage.

A superb sharp shot of this Castle. You certainly chose a good vantage point for this. A wonderful looking sky makes for a great background. "V"
