Good trip. We stumbled upon this walkway while walking through the town. There were several dozen steps leading down to the bottom. The stairs can get quite crowded at times. TIP: I recommend spending 5 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

Just a thing that is fairly hard to find in other places. I guess it's the only such thing to see. Cool.

Very close to the main square. Old "entrance" to the main square area. Used by monks. Now open for all. You can go through the gate downstairs to chill in Podwale cafe.

A part of the ancient fortification of the Santomierz. A narrow gate to enter the medieval city's centre.

It has it's own climate, anyhow it's nothing sophisticated. A few dozens of stairs connecting a park with old town with arc in brick wall in between.

I like those tiny little streets and passages so I am always curious to know about them. It is just an interesting spot with some history.

a very picturesque little street or rather stairs. Whatever that is- it looks good in photos :-) Take a shot while walking past it!

A tiny break in the Old Town walls, an old narrow wicket that let you quickly get to another interesting part of the city.

A curiosity, a narrow passage indeed, but I have seen narrower... It is a part of the town nedieval ramparts, easy to find, looks good on your vacation photos, but I would not recommend a selfie.
