The Right Here Right Now Thing

 

Sinnsucher
Paulina Stulin herself was on an Erasmus exchange in Krakow ten years ago. And her stay made a deep impression on her. She simply loves the rough and the ornate, the medieval architecture coupled with prefabricated buildings, and, of course, also the nature of the Slavic soul. The perfect setting for her comic The Right Here, Right Now Thing with its clearly autobiographical protagonist.

  • The "Paris on the Vistula" - that's how Krakow is also called. And this despite the fact that it is not the capital of Poland. Warsaw's sister city is one of the most popular tourist destinations. The mix of historic buildings and modern design, culture and cuisine has an irresistible charm. © Paulina Stulin (detail)

  • The city's landmark is also a pearl of Renaissance architecture: the Cloth Halls. The most impressive building in Krakow stands in the middle of the main market. Where once Flemish and English cloth passed over the counters, today crafts and all sorts of things are traded. © Paulina Stulin (detail)

  • Around the Rynek Glowny, the market square, stretches the historic old town of Krakow. Both are among the most beautiful places in Poland. If you venture into the hustle and bustle of locals, tourists and musicians, you will discover Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings next to modern stores and small cafés. © Paulina Stulin (Ausschnitt)

  • On the left bank of the Vistula, life is trendy and alternative: the hip Kazimierz district is pulsating with life. An independent city until 1800, it was not incorporated into the Polish metropolis until later. Today, it is mainly young people and students, of whom there are almost 200,000 in Krakow, who are drawn to the Jewish quarter around Plac Nowy. © Paulina Stulin (detail)

  • Those looking for relaxation after excessive sightseeing will find a popular retreat just around the corner in green Krakow. Only a few minutes separate the lively city center from nature. A stroll along the almost four-kilometer-long park belt is a wonderful way to relax. © Paulina Stulin (detail)

Marie Schröer on "The Right Here Right Now Thing"

Bars and clubs, old building facades and nature walks, sea of lights at night and a shimmering river: Krakow provides the ideal setting for a fast-paced night and for the night framed by daylight."
