Poland

Kraków

Hello from Poland! I would like to present some pictures from one of our most beautiful cities: Kraków or in English Cracow.

A 2 1/2 hour train ride from Warsaw’s Central train station will take you to the most beautiful part of this historic city.

Rynek Glówny or the main market square is at the heart of the old town of Kraków. The old town is ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls.

St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church is one of the most important landmarks in Kraków.

St Mary’s Trumpet Call, or Hejnał Mariacki, has been played in Kraków’s Main Square on a daily basis since the 14th century to signal the time. This highly traditional tune is known to almost every Pole and due to its long-standing history, a plethora of stories and myths have grown onto it, making it a very rich cultural phenomenon.

Our very important medieval royal castle – Kraków’s Wawel Castle

I would like to end this post with two pictures of my Polish friends:

    Hi Joanna,
    I am glad to receive updates of your travels. I particularly love the photos you shared on your visit to Poland. I was able to spend a week in Warsaw five years ago. I hope to be back one day!

    Shalom,

      Shalom Miner, good to hear from you again. It would be a very good idea for you to visit Poland because it is more beautiful every year. Maybe one year we can see each other in Warsaw. Stay in touch!
