An Evening of Music in Krakow

After a scrumptious dinner at Jadetkol's, after dinner entertainment was at Bonerewski Palace located at the north end of the main market square.

Our entertainment for the evening was an all Chopin programme played by Piotr Szczepanik. 

Even though this wasn't a royal palace, the ceiling patterns were rather unique and definitely gave the room some character.

During the intermission, I took a shot of the market square from the window in our salon. The hall was pretty full with tourists also looking to take in some music during the evening.

After the concert, we headed over to Sukiennice Hall to take a look. Some of the stalls had already closed for the day.

Much like any market, you can find all sorts of souvenirs and crafts for purchase.

On the left is a shot outside of Sukiennice Hall and on the right is a statue in front of St Mary's Basilica.

Some night shots of Sukiennice Hall below:

A night shot of St Florian's Gate, one of the most iconic Gothic towers that formed part of the fortifications built to withstand a Turkish attack. This was one of eight gates originally built in the middle ages but not dismantled in the modernization of Krakow.

An interesting bridge/walkway between two buildings with a unique outer design. On the right is the famous Barbican of Krakow near Plac Jana Matejki below.

Time for bed! Wieliczka Salt Mine tour tomorrow!
