Back from Krakow

During the previous days, we were staying in Krakow, Poland. I must say, it was a good experience. Krakow is a nice town, with friendly people.

The weather was something less than we had in Belgium (there they had a heatwave; it was even warmer there than in the south of Spain) but all in all we couldn't complain. We had a little bit of rain, but we're troubled a lot by it.

We stayed at the Double Tree by Hilton at the border of the town. A great hotel, with excellent service. The town center was easy to reach, too. Either by tram (just across the road was a tram stop and a tram ride costs 2,8 zloty. Or by taxi, which would cost between 20 and 25 zloty. (One Zloty is 25% of one euro). So everything there was extremely cheap to us.

When we went out dining, we only paid like 50 € (for two) for a meal with a cocktail, wine, water and coffee, including a starter, a main course and a dessert. Can you believe that? For the same, you'd pay at least 150€ in Belgium.

During our stay, we visited the German death camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau, which are at about 65 km from Krakow. We also went underground in the salt mine of Wieliczka and visited the Jewish quarter of Krakow, called Kaziemierz. And of course, walked around in the old town with historic buildings and the Wawel castle.
