This time our Krakow guides propose a descent into the underworld;) We invite You to an unusual museum located beneath the Cloth Hall and the Main Market Square. Through the special curtain made of steam – with projections of medieval Krakow Market displayed on it – we will enter the past.
The creation of this unique museum is the result of five years of archaeological excavations conducted beneath the surface of the Market. Archaeologists have found, among other things, fantastically preserved medieval cobbled roads, the remains of medieval buildings (houses, workshops, stalls), urban infrastructure (medieval plumbing!), a lot of objects associated with trade and everyday life and finally a huge 11th-century graveyard! As a result, it was possible to create an exhibition entitled Following the traces of European Identity of Kraków. Thanks to modern technology the exposition shows a 1000 years of reconstructed history of the city. Interactive maps, touch screens, holograms, multimedia projections and, above all, original relics of the past create a unique and coherent narrative. However, You should know, that this is not a story told from the perspective of kings and great politics! During our underground tour we will look at reality of medieval Krakow through the eyes of merchants and common residents of the city. We will learn about the conditions in which they lived and worked, about their daily problems and tragedies.
