One of Krakow’s most recognisable buildings, the Celestat is located in the Shooters Garden is the historical residence of the Fowler Brotherhood. The Neo-Gothic palace was built in 1837. This is where you can learn the true history of the Silver Fowl, allegedly presented by no one else than King Sigismund Augustus himself to the Kraków Sharpshooters’ Association in 1565. The symbol and most precious treasure of the Sharpshooters’ Association, incorporated in Kraków in the 13th century to defend the city against its enemies, is the Silver Fowl.
