The rusty structure of abandoned lime shaft kilns in the Liban Quarry in Kraków.

The great limestone quarry, located on the Krzemionki Hill at the foot of the Krakus Mound, began its operation in 1873. It was owned by Bernard Liban, a Jewish entrepreneur who also owned the cement works in Bonarka and soda factory in Borek Fałęcki. In 1942-1944 a Nazi work camp provided the work force; after the war the quarry was nationalized, and produced 250,000 tons of stone every year until the 1980s. In 1993 Steven Spielberg used this abandoned location to build a replica of the Płaszów concentration camp for the "Schindler's List" movie. Some remains, like barbed wire fences, can still be seen overgrown by bushes below.

In the abandoned Liban Quarry in Kraków: climbers call this vertical piece of rock El Pułkownik ('El Colonel') as it reminds them of a smaller version of Yosemite's El Capitan.

Apparently, this winter it got filled with water that has now frozen solidly. Have a look at another panorama captured here in the autumn.
