    A fascinating painting directly in the old town. Due to the central location, almost didn't get past it and should take really have time to look at the beautiful procession of princes alone.

    This is a picture showing the wladcow Wettinow dynasty. I do not know whether the word image is adequate. This inch long wall building poktyta tiles create a relaxing ambience wladcow procession.
