    Lovely square to wander round, sit and have a cocktail at night, have an ice-creak during the day or eat at any time....and people watch. The market in the Cloth Hall is very touristy but the building is lovely and you have to get a souvenir.

    It is surrounded by a lovely park, where one can relax, read, go cycling. Well preserved buildings and some churches all around old town. There are souvenir shops, restaurants and horse carriages adding to the local folklore. There is also a big arcade with shops selling mostly amber. In the beginning of June, when I visited the city, there were many tourists in the area(but not so many as to become a nuissance) although the weather was not warm. So, I guess, this is when it is considered a good time to visit and enjoy. The place is easily accessible by tram connections and has a lively atmosphere. It was a positive experience and I would like to visit again sometimes in future, because it is not a small area and one can enjoy more visits.

    Am grateful to God we were able to hear Sunday mass here. Honestly, since the service was in Polish, I struggled to follow. But in spirit, we were all in:)

    A stunning castle filled with beautiful exhibits. We has a guided tour and our guide was excellent. We learnt the history of the castle and its owners and visitors over the years. Some stunning pottery and furniture to see and a vast collection of tapestry and paintings. The cafe in the grounds serves lovely snacks and drinks and you can visit the castle dragon too. Well worth a visit

    This is not a tour of the factory that houses Schindler's company, rather it is a museum inside the old office building. The factory building is still there but was stripped of machinery at the end of the war.

    What makes it worth it - it provides a fantastic history of Krakow both before and during the war. The focus is not just on the ghetto but on the city and how everyone was affected. As the museum continues it provides more information about Schindler but I would hazard that only 20% or so is dedicated to him and his work.

    The museum runs across a number of levels and several small rooms, refers to photos, documents, film archives and memorabilia. It is well prepared and well presented with a couple of sections specifically for the Schindler Jews.

    What is harder is actually getting in if not on a prearranged tour, the queue is long and the staff not exactly beaming with help and welcome. A common theme we have found sadly. The museum is best served by a tour but they dominate the place and it is too easy to get stuck behind a group of 20 odd people or worse, two tour groups.

    It was however well worth the trip. It wasn't quite what we expected but that is ok. It was very good nonetheless and well worth the zl36 entrance fee.

    By far the most interesting part of the city, filled with great value and quality restaurants and bars. And of course the synagogues, most of which are now museums rather than actual places of worship. This part of the city is a bit more bohemian than the touristy old town at night.

    This was an awesome experience. Really easy to book. There were three of us in our late forties a d we were teamed up with three younger women and together opted for the green version. There was physical contact, but nothing too rough and I would describe it as being man handled rather than being grabbed. They had a little electricity wand which was scary, but I don’t think they actually used it on anyone. The whole thing takes place in almost complete darkness and you have to crawl and climb at certain points so there is a risk of injury but we were fine. Be prepared to get close to your team-mates. It’s surprising how little you care about personal space when you think someone is chasing you with a chain saw. Hubby seemed to like it though - like I said - we were teamed up with some nubile younger women! Apologies to one of them as I thought it was his arse I was smacking in the crawl tunnel and not hers. Highly recommended.

    We had tickets booked for May 2024, but due to another tour running late, we had to cancel. The staff at Womai were very friendly and efficient via email trying to accommodate us with other times & dates. They were extremely kind & helpful.

    Really nice surprise to learn more about stained-glass, see people in action and learn a bit more about its 'secrets'. Not sure if I ever get the chance again to visit a 'stained-glass-place'... so I really recommend visiting this one
