Sorry, no. They don`t display such giant LCD messages about All Saint`s Day.

flowers for everyone / every occasion.

A hint: not everyone but every .......

Another hint: "every " is followed by a word of human connotation.

The last word isn't very clear at all, but if I had to guess, the sentence looks to me to be ' Kwiaty dla wszystkim'.

No, it reads Dla wszystkich - For all - and another human word follows.

In the meantime

Back to Krakow for a while:

What is going on?

The date is the same as the last pic that you posted when you said you couldn't resist posting another pic of the Dragon Parade, and I complained that there was a distinct lack of dragons.......same again? There was also a Dragon Family Picnic on the same day.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

No, don`t look at the dates, Parades have nothing to do with it, this situation happens a few hundred times every day, I suppose.

As for flowers, I am amazed nobody got it yet. It is banal.

Hint: Think hard who mostly gets flowers in Poland? And when?

What is going on?

The guy showing his back to the camera is browsing his smartphone in search of diets that will help him loose weight.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
11 Oct 2019 #43
He is browsing but not a phone.

Hint: where are they exactly?

who mostly gets flowers in Poland? And when?

Is it for Dzień Kobiet ( Women's Day ) on 8th March? Or if not, then Dzień Matki ( Mother's Day ) on 26th May. Failing that, then Valentine's Day. One of them has got to be right!

where are they exactly?

Does that embankment go down to the river? Looks like it could be near Wawel and my guess is that people are going to see the fire-breathing Wawel dragon statue.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
11 Oct 2019 #45
Yes, Women`s Day. I clipped the photo so that you couldn`t guess so easily by looking at the date: 8 March. hahaha

Yes, Wisła River embankment, behind me there is Dragon statue, Wawel Castle on the right. No, they are doing sth else and the Lady in White doesn`t belong to the group. What is her role?

In the meantime:

What does it signify?

What is her role?

Selling tickets for boat trips? She's wearing a boating type cap, but then that would be at odds with:

this situation happens a few hundred times every day,

Which is why I thought of the fire-breathing dragon.

What does it signify?

I can't quite see what is engraved on that piece of stone. Something to do with Easter? The date is Good Friday.

Selling tickets for boat trips? She's wearing a boating type cap, but then that would be at odds with:

Yes, perfect! haha Why at odds? If they start in the morning and continue till dusk, I am sure the Lady in White and her several female rivals from other boats are able to harass passers-by a few hundred times per day. They don`t sail on boats, their task is to advertise the boating trip offers.

No, the date is unimportant. Let me give you a big hint which explains everything: this is still Krakow series.
Another hint: there are a dozen or more similar structures in the city.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

Meanwhile:

What is this architectonic style?

Hmm, obviously I must have missed them then. Are the engravings significant?

What is this architectonic style?

That is St Anne's Church and its style is Polish Baroque.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
13 Oct 2019 #51
The engravings show the structure at the peak of its greatness.

Yes, Baroque. Why Polish?

What`s wrong in the photo?

I would say that the beer.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
13 Oct 2019 #53
Yes, but in what sense?
Looker - | 1,023
13 Oct 2019 #54
The rule of not drinking in public of course..
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
13 Oct 2019 #55
Yes, drinking in public places is prohibited. Those were local bums who don`t care about restrictions.

Those symbols represent what, in general?



Chemikiem 6 | 2,081
14 Oct 2019 #56
Difficult to sum up if you're looking for one particular word. They all appear to be national symbols. There's the national coat of arms, the Polish eagle, Polish flag, Bison, a cross, Bishop's ? hat, swords.......I would say either Bóg, Honor, Ojczyzna ( God, Honour, Fatherland) or patriotism.

The engravings show the structure at the peak of its greatness.

I'm not going to get this. All I see when I look at the engraving is a cartoon type character, although to be fair, it's hard to make out exactly what it is.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
14 Oct 2019 #57
a cross,

It isn`t a cross, but sth else, and it is the major coat here.

the engraving is a cartoon type character,

Yes, it is like a cartoon drawing.
Hint: The last three photos (except bums with beer) were taken within the perimeter of about 50 metres.

Where are such conditions?

it is the major coat here.

That coat of arms relates to Cardinal Frederick Jagiellon who was Chancellor of Kraków University. It shows a Cardinals hat and Bishops mitre.
The whole thing is a heraldic frieze above the Collegium Maius building in Jagiellonian University.
On the right side we have the coat of arms of the Hapsburgs used by the cardinals's mother, the Polish eagle and the Lithuanian pahonia. At the bottom, from left to right, there are coats of arms of subsequent chancellors of the university.

Below the frieze is the coat of arms of Jagelloinan University, 2 crossed sceptres on a blue shield topped with a crown.

were taken within the perimeter of about 50 metres.

In the grounds of Jagiellonian University?
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
16 Oct 2019 #59
Yes, one of Jagiellonian University buildings displays those heraldic signs. Not Maius, but the one in front of St. Ann`s Church. But it wasn`t in the riddle.

Not in the grounds, just in the area. Look at the photo again and guess the type of landscape that you see. Where can you see such landscape in the vicinity of St Ann`s Church etc?

Who are those toys for?

?? I'm totally confused now. The Old Town?

Where can you see such landscape in the vicinity of St Ann`s Church etc?

Planty Park encircling Stare Miasto?

Who are those toys for?

An Entomologist? Don't laugh but they look like dead insects, ants? No ides what those sachets of powder are though.
