TOLAROIDS: Welcome home

After coming home before Christmas I kind of fell in love with this city again, so I thought I will share a bit of it with the world. My city, Krakow, is the second-largest city in Poland and used to be the capital until 1596. It’s home to the Jagiellonian University, one of Europe’s oldest (founded in 1364!), the largest medieval town square in Europe, and a castle where according to legends we used to have a dragon. We also have plenty of art galleries and museums (as Krakow is known as the city of culture), as well as lots of obwarzanki, and many many pigeons (according to another legend they are cursed knights which obviously makes sense). Sometimes from a hill we have you can see the Tatra mountains if the air is clear.

Here is some shameless Krakow propaganda 🙂



Antonina Karolina Kilian whose name is in a complex way shortened to Tola is a young photographer from Krakow, Poland. She transferred to the University of Michigan from Royal Holloway, University of London, to double-major in Biopsychology, Cognition & Neuroscience and Classical Archaeology. Her series "Tolaroids" consists of photo stories, tutorials, and commentaries that explore all kinds of photography. In her free time, she loves dancing, painting, and sipping good coffee. She also pets all the dogs she can meet on the way to class. Instagram: @akilian.jpg Email:
