Wobbly Man. The Lenin Monument in Nowa Huta

dodano 28.07.2020
The monument dedicated to the memory of Vladimir Lenin, which was present in Aleja Róż for only 16 years, left a strong mark on the district. Even now, over 30 years after its dismantling, stories such as the unsuccessful attempt to blow it up, attempts to topple it by demonstrators, and the city legends it generated attract attention and are widely being commented on.

In Praise of Books. Robert Jahoda – craftsman and artist

dodano 12.11.2019
Samuel Butler (1835–1902), an English writer and thinker, once said: "An art can only be learned in the workshop of those who are winning their bread by it." We do not know if the hero of our exhibition knew those words of the author of article: Darwin among the Machines, but his professional and personal life proved that he was pretty familiar with the thought behind those words.
The exhibition titled In Praise of Books. Robert Jahoda – craftsman and artist, held in the Hipolit Family tenement house was dedicated to the bookbinding master, Robert Jahoda (1862–1947). He was one of the most outstanding Polish bookbinders. He ran his bookbinding workshop in Kraków for 60 years – between 1887 and his death in 1947.

Defensive Walls - Barbican - Celestat

dodano 20.04.2018
The first confirmed mentions on Krakow’s fortifications appears in the prerogative issued in 1285 by Leszek Czarny. It allowed the burghers to build walls. The fortifications were being expanded for several hundred years.
The obligation to defend the city rested on residents associated in craft guilds that guarded their watchtowers and gates. In 1684, the fortifications around Krakow consisted of 8 gates and 47 watchtowers. Their maintenance was a big financial challenge for the authorities of a city harrased in late 17th and 18th centuries, by enemy troops on the one hand, and by plagues and cataclysms on the other.
In the early 19th century, the city walls were dismantled due to excessive maintenance costs and an outdated defense system. Thanks to the efforts of prof. Feliks Radwanski and Jan Librowski the northern part of the walls consisting of the Floriańska gate, the Pasamonik, Stolarska and Ciesielska watchtowers and the building of the former municipal arsenal were defended against destruction.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the Studio of Architecture and Changes in Urban Planning at the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow has been reproducing the appearance of individual sections of the former city walls in digital form. Here are the major elements of the Krakow fortifications, presented in a digital visualization.
