Where I stayed
From above the park, we could see the highway and the river beyond. On the opposite side of the river, we could also see the new football stadium built for the European Championships to be held here in June 2012. The stadium seats 40,000 people and teams from all over Europe will attend.
With a church on every corner, we decided to take a photo of this one which was across the street from the hotel. On the way to the overview of the park, there was another church which was open to view but not in use.
Most of this city was destroyed in WWII by the Germans and the Russians
There always seems to be a reason for everything. After several attempts at trying to get on the Hop On Hop Off bus, we gave up and went to Saski Park to look for a letter box. Didn't find one, but the square next to the park was being set up for a fireman's rally, complete with music stand for a concert, lots of firefighting equipment. But best of all, as we started to leave a parade with bands and a long line of fire equipment started arrive at the square! We got some great pictures of the trucks and bands.
We got some ice cream and rested a short time. The concierge of the Sofotel Hotel told us where to get the bus we had been looking for, and we spent the rest of the afternoon riding the tour bus around town.
We stopped to eat after the tour. We had savory and sweet pierogi at Zapiecek Polskie Pierogarnie, a nice place recommended by the bike tour company.
We went back to regroup at the hotel, then went out to find food for the evening snack. We found great paczki, an eclaire, and of course, more ice cream!
