Where I stayed
Today we're heading to another large city - Krakow, Poland - basically to visit the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
We arrived into Krakow during some sort of celebration - the park along the banks of the Wisla River was full of excitement and displayed everything family complete with a huge BBQ - selling of course polish sausage - not like us where we sell hotdogs, burgers & fries, an amusement park, booths selling wares, an outdoor band, and fireworks
That same evening we booked a tour to Auschwitz Concentration Camp, the Wieliczka Salt Mine, and celebrated my birthday. Over the course of the next couple of days we walked the Jewish Quarters, visited the Schindler Museum, and meandered through the University district.
Krakow pronounced KRAK-oof was wonderful - it's full of young, vibrant, attractive and hard working people. It's scenic and friendly with fabulous park spaces, miles of biking & walking/running trails - my daughter-in-law would love it here:) It was affordable, great restaurants, theatre, and old churches host small concerts at reasonable prices.
