podziemia rynku   Rynek Underground Museum - Underneath Cracow Main Square is an odyssey into past, brought to life centuries later by a group of archeologists. It is  a  sanctuary full of construction and architecture relics, stone paths with grooves worn by the wheels of wagons transporting goods in the times of the King      Wladyslaw Lokietek, the oldest brick constructions of trading buildings, ornaments, coins, any many other objects lost or left here on purpose by the ones    visiting this place ages ago. At the same time it is a place where the magic atmosphere is created by modern technology offering a visitor a different   perspective on the confrontation with history and monuments.
