Visit Krakow & the Old Town – Part 4

Visit Krakow & the Old Town – Part 4

This is the fourth and final blog post in the ‘Visit Krakow’ series. You can check out earlier posts using these links: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

After fascinating visits to Schindlers Factory and the Salt Mines and then the sobering visit to Auschwitz, we decided to wander and explore a little more of Krakow.

Cloth hall and chocolates

We picked up  souvenirs from stalls in the magnificent Cloth Hall in the centre of the Rynek, bought chocolate for our Grandchildren (and adult children) in local shops and generally wandered around the Old Town.

Whilst in Krakow some of other visits included time at the Rynek Underground Exhibition and the Galicea Jewish Museum  The museum was really enjoyable, and had a couple of very decent photographic displays running and that were really quite engrossing.

Decent walking

In addition to a couple of bars, coffee shops and cafe’s we also visited the museum of Municipal Engineering, but unfortunately only a very small part of it was open whilst we were there. We looked into various churches, browsed around a number of shops and stalls and generally enjoyed the sights and sounds of Krakow.

It’s very much a ‘walking city’ especially in and around the Old Town – we walked around 42 miles or so whilst there, so were glad we had taken decent footwear.
