A walk through the streets of Krakow with stories about new inventions that changed the face of the city: the railway, new industrial plants such as the brewery, the blacksmith’s shop and Zieleniewski’s machine factory, as well as urban infrastructure – bridges, crossings, intersections. How was the city lit and how was it electrified? What is an omnibus, where you could get with a street car and why was a fire brigade established? What was the Machine House used for, where was the first power plant built, and why were cyclists and motorists to blame for everything?
