Krakow - Poland Review

I've recently got back from krakow in Poland. Today I thought I would share with you my experience. I didn't know of anyone who had gone to krakow , so I was not sure what to expect for the weekend away. 

My mum and I booked a cheap deal which included the flights and hotel. We stayed in hotel Maksymilian which was very central and only a 5 minute walk to the main square which was ideal. As we had a early flight we arrived early Friday morning. We grabbed some breakfast in a lovely little cafe on the main square. Then went to book our trips for the weekend at the information centre. 

On Saturday we went to Auschwitz and it was an early start and the commute was 1hr and 30 mins from the hotel. 

Our tour guide was amazing and very professional, she spoke brilliant English. It was a sad experience but I believe we should never forget what went on, so that it doesn't happen again.

Later that day we went to the Salt Mines. It was very beautiful especially the underground church. My mum found that there was a lot of walking involved in combination with Auschwitz for one day. I would maybe recommend doing these trips over two days.  

The salt mine was visually beautiful and well worth seeing. We went 200m underground and was given information on the salt mines and how they were formed.

On Sunday we went on a trip around the old town, Jewish Quarter and the Ghetto from the Second World War. Our private tour guide Adam was brilliant very friendly and made the trip. We went around the districts in what looked like a golf buggie. Here are some snaps from our tour. 

The tour included an audio tape in English which talked through the history of krakow. The tour was fab and a great way to get hang of your surroundings.Adam pointed out places of interest.

On the last night we had food at Hard Rock Cafe and sat upstairs in the window, this meant we had a perfect view of the main square. Our waiter was again brilliant, everyone was super friendly. It had great atmosphere and everyone was enjoying. The food was great and very reasonable. 

We had a lovely time and I have to say it was one of best trips I have been on. Plenty to do and very reasonable on price.
