Weekend in Krakow - Old Town - Stare Miasto

We walked toward Krakow's Old Town (Stare Miasto) and stopped to admire the Fall foliage at the base of Wawel Hill.
We entered town and were impressed by the slightly shabby facades reaching for the clear blue sky.
We spotted a garden of well-coiffed shrubbery outside a grand church.
Statues stood on watch out front.
We stopped in front of the Old Town Hall, situated on the largest open market square in Europe.  A big metal head lolled at the base.
An old and worn lion guarded the entrance to the tower.
We paid a nominal fee for the privilege of climbing the tower.  It was quite dim inside.  The only light was through dark and worn stained glass.
Leaning out the window, we got a birds-eye view of the Old Town Square.
We admired St. Mary's Basilica and what looked like a nuclear power plant in the distance (background, far right).
We couldn't read this sign but soon got the gist when we bumped our heads going down the stairs.
We stopped to listen to some fine jazz music in the shadow of the Old Town Hall.
We stayed warm with some nice mulled wine purchased at bargain prices.
We spotted a fancy carriage cruising the square.
We popped into the long shopping arcade running down the center of the square.
Names of Polish cities and their crests adorned the ceiling.
The market hall was decorated on the outside with little heads. 
We spied a bicycle with a bespoke crocheted cover tethered to a pole near St. Mary's Basilica.
We walked toward the far end of the Old Town passing buildings adorned with colorful crests -- like this lobster.
We paused our journey at the tower just outside the Old Town as the rain made its entrance.
