Why are they marching?

I don't think I'm right but my guess is that they are marching in opposition to the Government educational reforms set in 2016, which would have come into effect in September 2017.

Sorry, no. It was a fun march - Dragon Parade. I just couldn`t resist another pic from it. :)

Who`s that guy? For now, I won`t say in which city.

Distinct lack of dragons!!!!!!!

Yes, Skrzynecki, the legendary boss of even more legendary Ram Basement cabaret in Krakow.

Well, talking about Krakow. How about a few more pics from it?

What is located here?

I can't quite make out what those symbols/designs on that building are.......

These are artistic designs without any meaning.

As you probably never saw it, let alone visited it, I will make it easier for you.

The place is a :
1. theatre
2. museum
3. cinema.
4. art gallery.

I'm going to guess at a cinema. I've been to Kraków a few times, and unless it's a really obscure art gallery or museum, you had no way of knowing if I might have visited it when you posted the photo. It doesn't look like a theatre, looks more like a cinema than anywhere else so it is indeed unlikely that I would have been there.

That's my process of elimination anyway!

Sorry, it is Bagatela Theatre, located on the corner of Krupnicza and Karmelicka street.
What is this facility?

Groteska Theatre.

Groteska Theatre.

Oops, look again at the photo.

Although I might agree with you, I suppose some people who frequent this place can say it is grotesque. :) But not a theatre!

Your pic looks exactly like of dolls, masks and actors.

I don't understand this. Looking at photo onmy laptop it is Groteska theatre, but when I just looked on my mobile for better view, there is a totally different photo ..

You need to refresh the page. :):)

I have, first thing I tried. The groteska theatre pic was taken 14/4/2017, and the photo I can see on my mobile has the date 8/5/2017. Never had this happen before.

This means your laptop has gone on strike - it had had enough of Polish riddles.
Chemikiem 6 | 1,888
10 Sep 2019  #3,015
Haha! But it's really strange. On laptop I see a corner of Groteska Theatre with all the long windows with designs in them and 70 Lat in writing. Below that there is a yellow and blue Lewiatan sign. On my mobile I see a pic of a building taken side on with a brick red and cream coloured side and a car in the bottom right hand corner. Wonder if anyone else can see the same?

I see only the second picture. But let`s say you guessed the Groteska theatre in advance, sort of. Congrats. :)

the 08-05-2017 picture looks like one of those buildings you might enter, but never leave. or a prison.
OP pawian 159 | 9,428

Yes, exactly, the prison in Monteluppi Street. Do you see that watch tower? How about blinded windows?

What was this part of the known building used for in the past centuries, especially the Middle Ages and later on?

known building

Not quite sure what you mean by this. When you say 'known', do you mean it's part of the prison building?

:):) No, I meant another famous building. Yes, I should have used a instead of the, but the building is so unique in Poland that I kept the.

so unique

So damn unique that I can't work out anything about it! Presume we are still in Kraków? I need a bit more help!

Yes, we are still in Krakow series, I haven`t cancelled it. What is the most unique structure in Krakow?

When I first saw the picture I thought of Wawel, but couldn't find a picture of the castle showing that particular section, so thought I was wrong. Checked again and found it, and even more embarrassing, I have a photo of it too, although not at a great angle.

It is the Hen's Foot tower ( Kurza Stopka ) of Wawel Castle.
As for what it was used for, do you mean that a part of it serves as a treasury for art of historical significance? It was also used by Michał Sędziwój, an alchemist and doctor, as a science laboratory.

Apart from the functions you mentioned, a part of the tower was also used as a facility to which kings have to walk. Namely what?

In the meantime:

Any idea what is located here?

Where and what was this?

Namely what?

Hmm. I've searched in English and Polish, and found that in the upper part of the building there was a King's room. Also, a royal office, and the chambers of Queen Jadwiga and Barbara Radziwiłłówna. Also, latrines? Am I getting warmer?

Any idea what is located here?

This is slightly confusing with the name changes. That is a beautiful building on the corner of Kapuczyńska and Straszewskiego streets. It was called the Academy of Commerce building, but was renamed in 1957 as the School of Economics Complex?

Joker, I don`t know your ruins, I have never seen them. They are too young to be a popular tourist attraction. :):)

Also, latrines? Am I getting warmer?

yes! A medieval toilet. The excrements fell down directly into the moat. :)

as the School of Economics Complex?

Yes, perfect! As a student, we visited it to look for girlfriends coz there were mostly female students. :)

Where was I?
