The famous St. Mary’s Basilica in Krakow in a black and white impression. The photo shows a view of the two characteristic towers of St. Mary’s Basilica from the Cloth Halls on Krakow’s Main Market Square.
The higher of the two towers is the scene of a unique ritual: every hour on the hour, a window opens and a trumpeter plays a signal that sounds far above the old town of Krakow, but then cuts off abruptly.
This strange ceremony recalls the Tatar storm of 1241, when the trumpeter of the time was hit by an arrow while giving his warning signal and fell silent, and the city was overrun and destroyed in the subsequent Mongol attack.
I find this tradition fascinating. Even though historical events may be mixed with legends here, it speaks highly of the remarkable historical awareness of Krakow’s citizens.
