krakow: the university's medieval space ship

That is a fun shot of the oldest University building! We tried to find a proper name, but the only one that we came up with was simply a bay window. Apparently English doesn't have all the words to describe medieval architecture. Anyway, I was so amazed when I saw this bay window! Although I saw it hundreds of times before, I nevere thought of it as a space ship! And a space ship is what it looked like for me for a second! It's so funny how much medieval architecture has so many connections to 20th century sci-fi movies!
I'm in Warsaw at the moment, hopefully going to upload some pictures from here soon.
