Kazimierz Dolny

The St. Nicholas relief is on the front of the St. Nicholas House on the Market Square in Kazimierz Dolny. The townhouses were built in the early 1600s by two merchant brothers, Nicholas and Christopher Przybyla. The two houses are dedicated to their patron saints: St. Nicholas and St. Christopher. The brothers were prosperous grain merchants. The Nicholas house was restored after the war. St. Nicholas House has been featured on two Polish stamps in 1954 and 1975.
