The collection of photos of Kraków is very precious iconographic source revealing the history of the city. Old pictures depict often changing its appearance Kraków, show developments in the history of the city and present life of the city dwellers. Pictures were taken as well by professional photographers as by amateurs.
Among others, our special collection includes daguerreotypes coming from 40s and 50s of the 19th century. Unfortunately we have only a few in our collection, but these are examples of the oldest photographic technique and that is why they are so precious.
