The Trumpet Sounds


"The steeple of St. Mary's Basilica, Old Town in Krakow, Poland. St. Mary's Basilica is situated at the end of the Royal Route. In the ancient times on the loft of church's main tower was positioned a trumpeter that alarmed people about enemy attacks. During the Tatars' invasion in the 13th century the trumpeter had alarmed citizens against the attack and was killed by an enemy arrow. So nowadays every hour in memory of his death the trumpet call is sounded in four parts of the world". Taken by Mary
