New articles on the collection of Wawel Royal Castle
We keep continue to develop our cooperation with Wawel Royal Castle State Art Collection. In December new articles on the artifacts from the Crown Treasury were published on Wikipedia. A series of articles that are developed by the museum professional is connected with the new opening of the Crown Treasury, the part of the Castle that was used from the 15th century for storing the Polish coronation insignia and Crown Jewels. The Wawel Royal Castle, where the museum is located, for centuries had been the residence of the kings of Poland and the symbol of Polish statehood.
More unique objects from Wawel’s collection were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and they illustrate the new articles connected with "the re-opening of the Crown Treasury”.
