Main Market Square Night
After dark, Krakow's Main Market Square continues to lure passers-by with dinner outdoors at one of the many surrounding restaurants. Cloth Hall, Town Hall Tower, and St. Mary's Church are bathed in light. And then the fire dancers arrive. People gather around them, becoming an audience, transfixed by pounding drums and swirling flames. Weaving patterns of light, the dancers twirl wicks dipped in kerosene until all that is left are smoky, sputtering remnants. When the bells chime at ten, their performance in the square ends.
