Where in the World is Gary? #2

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#1) is Key West, Florida

Where in the World is Gary? #2

Latitude — 50º 3′ North

Longitude — 19º 56′ East

This city contains the largest square in Europe. The entire Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gary in Krakow

Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a foreigner who fought with the colonists during the American Revolution, along with many kings, is buried here. Every hour a trumpeter begins a sequence of notes (known as the hejnal) from the tower of St Mary’s Church, but never completes the music, recreating an important event in the city’s history.

A legendary dragon lived here.
