From ages is Cracow instead of numbers of houses was an emblems. Cracovian Houses has a name from owners or from emblems, therefore up to this day we have house “Under Etiops” etc.

Almost always under doors was emblems in shape of relief or sculpture. The oldest relief is on Grodzka Street 32. It come from XIV century. We can see stone lion, which came from a name of house “Podelwie”

(under-lion). Maybe you will be able to see a lion between a horrible signboards!
