Wawel: The Cathedral and Castle
WAWEL: Katedra i Zamek
Photographs: Adam Bujak
Text: Jan K. Ostrowski
Towering over Cracow, Wawel is indivisibly linked not just with the Royal City but with the whole Polish nation. This book shows it in all its splendour as well as its exceptional architecture and countless works of art. It is seen through the lens of an unequalled master photographer and native of Cracow, Adam Bujak, who takes us not only through the familiar Castle chambers and Cathedral chapels but also through the places normally inaccessible to the public. This is a unique opportunity to admire the priceless heritage kept for generations in the Castle and Cathedral treasuries: the Royal tombs, relics, ancient books, magnificent altars, chambers, the armoury and fortifications. It is a journey through a millennium of Polish history. We are also invited to share in the solemn national and Church celebrations that take place within its walls. Wawel is not just a museum - it is full of life even today. We are expertly led through the wealth of its history and meaning by the text of Professor Jan K. Ostrowski.
