Photographer's Note

Pultusk is a satellite town of Warsaw, located about 60 km from the Polish capital in the Narew River valley.
Since the 13th century there was a wooden settlement. In 1257 city rights were granted to Pultusk and it became the property of the bishops of Plock.
Throughout the 14th-16th centuries, Pultusk was the third largest city of the Mazovian region (after Warsaw and Plock), the favorable placement of the town on the Narew River, where grain and other goods were transported to Gdansk, contributed to the town's growth and importance.
During World War II the town was destroyed in about 85%. Rebuilt after the war the town is today one of the most popular weekend places for the inhabitants of Warsaw.
In my photo you can see the southern part of the longest paved market in Europe (380 m) with a fountain, the chapel of St. Mary Magdalene and the tower of the bishop's castle from the 15th century.
In WS a photo of the bishop's castle.
