Poland is a large country and we don't have much time before meeting JoAn in Helsinki, so we concentrated our time visiting Krakow. Krakow is a wonderful city. We only spent two days, but you could easily spend much more.
Krakow - We stayed outside of town and took public transportation into the town center. It was easy to do and very convenient. The first thing we did was take a free walking tour. The guides work for tips, so they are inspired to do a good job. We have taken them in several different cities. The guides are usually college students and have lots to share about their city. In addition to an excellent tour, our guide suggested a good inexpensive authentic polish food restaurant favored by the locals. We had a delicious dinner.
There is lots of street entertainment in the main square.
Rynek Glowny - a covered market in the center of the main square.
Vistula River with the Wawel Castle in the background.
Views of inside the church.
Rural Poland - The countryside is very similar to Romania and Slovakia. Lots of green rolling hill and lakes. It is beautiful.
View from our camping spot on a lake. We had a nice evening walk around the lake.
