Krakow. Just amazing.
Aug 2021 • Friends
The journey is nearly over and as I sit here outside with a beer I am reflecting on a fantastic week that totally took me by surprise.
From karaoke on Monday night, a first, to Zakapone Alpine resort, a first to Michelin restaurants.
Krakow is truly amazing and spectacular, from its historic building to its beautiful parks, its Cobble stone Street, its food , its night life, the list could go on.
For the last three nights I have been paddling solo and what stricks me the most is just how safe I feel walking at night albeit my accommodation is 2mins from the main square. No matter what time be it early evening or the wee hrs I have felt so safe and relaxed one of the few cities which affords that.
Krakow is just simply amazing, I have totally fallen in love with it and am planning my next visit already.
I would really really encourage everyone to visit here , guaranteed you will not be disappointed and with easy access from Shannon & easy access from the airport here to the city it would be fool hardy , I believe not to get excited, get booking & get traveling.
Krakow awaits to embrace you , her gems wait to embrace you & her heart waits to embrace you.
It's yours for the taking.

Beautiful Historic Square
Aug 2021
It is an amazing square with great architecture. There is lots of stuff to do on the square - the old town hall clock tower, St. Mary's Basilica, and other museums. There are also lots of restaurants. They may be a little higher priced here than in other parts of Krakow but are still reasonable with good food and great views/people watching. This is definitely one of the nicest public squares in Europe.
