Trip to Krakow, July 2011

Some rough and ready photos from a sunny summer holiday to Krak??w. It’s nearly seven years since I was last there so there were a few changes ??? most notably a shiny new shopping centre, a museum in Oscar Schindler’s factory and a vast modern art gallery. The dark tourism continued with a trip to Auschwitz; a very sobering experience.

 

The final images are from the Wieliczka Salt Mine, which never fails to entertain. This was the sunniest day of the week, so well worth spending it underground.

 

We ate well, drank a bit, walked plenty and lamented the laborious lethargy of the trains. It’s a great city, very international and well worth a visit.
