There are 4 wonderful putti in the palace gardens of Lindstedt Palace in Potsdam. Each of the boys symbolizes a different season. ???? The palace is not far from the Belvedere on the Klausberg and the Sanssouci Park in an area where it is much less busy. ? The gloomy ponds, a moor and protected wetland in the middle of the beautiful forest area Katharinenholz are also very close by. ???? In stormy and rainy weather, the environment has a very special melodramatic charm that impressed me well. ?️?️?️ By the way, Lindstedt Palace was built under Friedrich Wilhelm IV in the middle of the 19th century in the style of romantic classicism and has - like so many buildings in Potsdam - an Italianizing design language. ?? Incidentally, the building also served as a filming location for an underground secret laboratory in the film "Resident Evil" and once belonged to the ancestors of Vicco von Bülow, good old Loriot. ❤️

Very nice property with the round tower, the representative entrance to the portal and the columned aisle. The metal water reservoir above the columned aisle appears to be new and fits well with the building. I imagined what the corridor would have looked like if it had been illuminated

Kraków Cloth Hall

The Cloth Hall in Kraków dates to the Renaissance and is one of the city's most recognizable icons. It is the central feature of the main market square in the Kraków Old Town (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978).

The hall was once a major centre of international trade. Traveling merchants met there to discuss business and to barter. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the east – spices, silk, leather and wax – while Kraków itself exported textiles, lead, and salt from the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Kraków was Poland's capital city and was among the largest cities in Europe already from before the time of the Renaissance. However, its decline started with the move of the capital to Warsaw in the very end of the 16th century. The city's decline was hastened by wars and politics leading to the Partitions of Poland at the end of the 18th century. By the time of the architectural restoration proposed for the cloth hall in 1870 under Austrian rule, much of the historic city center was decrepit. A change in political and economic fortunes for the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria ushered in a revival due to newly established Legislative Assembly or Sejm of the Land. The successful renovation of the Cloth Hall, based on design by Tomasz Pryliński and supervised by Mayor Mikołaj Zyblikiewicz, Sejm Marshal, was one of the most notable achievements of this period.

The hall has hosted many distinguished guests over the centuries and is still used to entertain monarchs and dignitaries, such as Charles, Prince of Wales and Emperor Akihito of Japan, who was welcomed here in 2002. In the past, balls were held here, most notably after Prince Józef Poniatowski had briefly liberated the city from the Austrians in 1809. Aside from its history and cultural value, the hall still is still used as a center of commerce.

On the upper floor of the hall is the Sukiennice Museum division of the National Museum, Kraków. It holds the largest permanent exhibit of the 19th-century Polish painting and sculpture, in four grand exhibition halls arranged by historical period and the theme extending into an entire artistic epoch. The museum was upgraded in 2010 with new technical equipment, storerooms, service spaces as well as improved thematic layout for the display.

The Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art was a major cultural venue from the moment it opened on October 7, 1879. It features late Baroque, Rococo, and Classicist 18th-century portraits and battle scenes by Polish and foreign pre-Romantics.
