Convent of the Jesuits

The building of the monastery of the Jesuits and the Jesuit Centre for Education
Piotra Skargi Street

The monastery was built in 1410. Initially, the buildings occupied Premonstratensians. In 1784, the Austrians ruined buildings and warehouses have been made in them. In 1831 the monastery took the Jesuits. After World War II, the Communists took over the buildings.
After the Cold War, the buildings were returned to the Jesuits who have them renewed and parts of buildings formed the Education Centre.

Tyson & DJ

This mural is definitely weaker than those presented earlier. But such works appear in my town.
Very while I like the shades of blue and pink in the sky. On each screen will look different, but it can also be for someone to look nice.

Anyway always better wall with the mural and graffiti than dirty, stained and gray.

Corpus Christi Procession

June 19 coincided with the feast of Corpus Christi. In Poland, on this day held processions through the streets of towns and villages. The streets around the church building, four altars and wanders from one to the other. On the route of the procession embellishes the windows.
Sometimes the decor is modest, sometimes very rich and attractive.

Some processions are very orderly arranged. On the other hand some are very spontaneous, which I guess you can see in the pictures. 
In my town there were several such procession. In each attended by several thousand people.

Sample design of several windows.

One of the altars.

At the time order of procession on the streets guarding the police.

It was hard to photograph everything in the crowd. For example, I could not make a good picture little girls sprinkle flower petals or little boys ringing bells.

Blessing of the third altar.

Royal castle

Kowalska Tower (Baszta Kowalska) - castle ruins from the 14th century. Built with funds from King Casimir the Great (Kazimierz Wielki).

Only so much is left of the castle Sącz after World War II.

Until World War II on the hill above the river Dunajec stood the royal castle. During World War II, Germany arranged in the castle ammunition depot. At the end of the war there was a danger that Germany blast the whole city before they leave.
Two men got into the castle, and blew the whole amunicę and bombs, saving the city. Unfortunately, these two brave soldiers also died.
