Old City Architecture

Krakow's old town is partially enclosed by a city wall; there are three photos of it at the bottom of this post.  All the rest of the buildings here are inside it.  Most buildings look to be seventeenth to eighteenth century; the city is built on successive ruins of older versions.  Some current buildings' ground floors are now below ground because of the raising of roads.  Most of the roads are cobbled, and there are many sculptures and tiles to brighten the buildings.
