Krakow

Oriental Art

  Wawel 5 ,   Old Town         01 Aug 2018

This exhibit in the western wing of the castle comprises art from the Near East which was highly prized and fashionable amongst the Polish nobility as it entered the kingdom via military and trade contact with Turkey, Iran, the Caucasus and Crimea. Visitors will see unique collections of Chinese ceramic and Japanese porcelain, but the part of the exhibit that makes it essential are the trophies, banners, weapons and other artefacts captured during King Jan Sobieski III's famous victory over the Turkish army at Vienna in 1683, including Ottoman commander Kara Mustapha Para's sabre.
