    Flohmarkt Plac Novi

    June 22, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Frühstücken in einem kleinen Café im jüdischen Viertel kann sehr lecker sein. Und zusätzlich recht praktisch, wenns draußen zu schütten und stürmen beginnt. Auch praktisch ist, dass gleich daneben ein kleiner, feiner Flohmarkt ist. Da kann man dann, wenns Wetter wieder besser ist wunderbar herumstöbern.Read more

    Krakau Kazimierz

    October 28, 2018 in Poland ⋅ 🌬 5 °C

    Nach einer weiteren regenreichen Nacht die wir aber in einer warmen, trockenen und günstigen! Unterkunft (mit heisser Dusche😀) verbracht haben, war am nächsten Morgen das Frania Cafe (http://franiacafe.pl) unsere erste Anlaufstelle. Hier gab es neben einem leckeren Frühstück, auch Waschmaschinen und Trockner. Damit war das Problem "Schmutzwäsche" auch ruckzuck gelöst😁.
    Nachdem es am Mittag dann zwar draußen immer noch ungemütlich aber halbwegs trocken war, durchstreiften wir das jüdische Viertel mit einigen Synagogen und seinen vielen gemütlichen Kneipen.

    1. den

    March 13, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Po kratkom lete z Viedne a ubytovani sme vyrazili na rychly prieskum na Rynek Glówny. Zastavka v stylovej cajovni Herbarciarna Czarka (https://eherbata.pl/herbaciarnia.html) - super priestory a vyborny Oolong caj (ja Ali Shan Jin Xuan a Majka Milk Oolong). Potom presun do zidovskej stvrti Kazimierz, kde sme sa tesili na veceru v restike Zazie bistro (http://www.zaziebistro.pl/ - taliansky zamerane, vyborne recenzie a tesili sme sa na musle), ale bolo plno. First fitovo (caj uz riadne tlacil) sme nakoniec skoncili v Kolanko No 6 (http://www.kolanko.net/). Ukazalo sa to ako vyborna volba. Lokalne krakovske craft pivecka (podotykam, ze si dala aj pani M.) nasledovalo predjedlo (ja Indonezyjski satay a Majka Kofty wegetarianskie) a ako hlavne jedlo Musaka (grecke jedlo, Majka) a Murgh Makhani (indicko-britske jedlo, ja) - proste typicka polska restika ;) ... ale preto ma motto “ Naokolo swiata”. Ja som to este zaklepol zakuskom Ciasto czekoladowe podawane na cieplo z sosem z malin , jagod i porzeczek a Long Island Ice Tea. Nasledne som sa uz len odgulal cez nocny Rynek Glówny do postele - popravde pred spankom este ochutnavka cestou zakupenej flasky lokalneho cerveneho Srebrna Góra Kraków Cabernet Cortis 2017 (vyborne!!!). Kazdopadne som v Kazimierzi s jeho mnozstvom utulnych restik, barov a culym nocnym zivotom odhalil velky potencial aj do dalsich krakovskych vecerov.Read more

    Krakow Poland

    June 8, 2018 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Said a sad auf wiedersehen to Switzerland and took a short flight to Poland. As Switzerland is expensive, Poland is cheap. Thank goodness. As I would be a shit busker.
    Krakow may not be as pretty as some of the other cities we have visited but it is vibrant and lively and has soul. Wandered around Old Town before taking a stroll down Horse Piss Alley (if you have been there you will know what I mean) into the main city square, which was full of bars, restaurants, markets, buskers and horse drawn carriages (see reference above).
    We sampled their many and varied vodkas - super smooth, and ate some fantastic local street food.
    We decided it would be a good idea to leave early as a) lots of English stag parties come to Krakow b) they weren't drunk yet c) neither was Graham, and d) if both were this would not end well.
    Oh and I must mention our apartment. It's on the third floor with no lift, so Graham had to lug the luggage up numerous flights of stairs. I helped. The stairs all bow in the middle when you walk on them and the tiles on the landings are all loose, but it is in a great location and has everything we need. Including a bar over the road playing loud music. All adds to the atmosphere.

    Wieliczka Salt Mine

    June 9, 2018 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    This afternoon we visited the salt mine, which was originally established in the 13th century. All the sculptures and carvings were done by the miners. They still have mass 300 metres underground every Sunday.
    Went back to the town square tonight to try some more vodka, as the bar we have found has over 100 flavours. We are working our way through the list. Ate street food at the local market - it was sensational. The place really comes to life at night - there are buskers, break dancers, stages set up with performers, markets, bars and restaurants all around the square, horses parading along the streets and many many drunk people. But there are also sober ones so it balances out nicely.
    We didn't stay near the square as it is walking distance but much quieter where we are staying in the Jewish quarter. Well it would be quieter if we weren't staying opposite a nightclub that goes until 5am. Graham peeked out the window at 4am and he said there were bodies everywhere. We were laying in bed singing along with them. One of those moments that will be funny one day in the future, but not at the moment.

    Last Day in Krakow

    June 10, 2018 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    So many things to see....such little time.
    Hopped on a Segway tour for a couple of hours to check out the city. It's a great way to tour - informative and fun. There are a multitude of escape rooms here so as we hadn't done one before we thought we'd had a go. It was heaps of fun and quite addictive. We were pretty useless at the start and they helped us out a couple of times on the walkey talkey. We solved every puzzle but the very last one so didn't make it out this time.
    As it was our last night we headed to Wodka Bar for a last paddle of vodkas and then had street food. There are many nice restaurants here but the market food is seriously good.Got back to our apartment just as the rain started. Timing is everything.
    Unfortunately we didn't get everything done that we wanted to in Krakow. Next (and final) stop - Amsterdam.
