The Wawel Royal Castle

1 09 2014

I never thought of Poland possibly being a kingdom with royalties due to my lack of European history education and knowledge though I took world history when I was in the 10th grade.  For me the image has always been “socialist” but the grandiose Wawel Royal Castle in Krakow is anything but.

And in the castle currently on display to a very limited number of people each day is this paining by Leonardo da Vinci.  Of course I didn’t see it having showed up too late when the day’s allotment was gone.
