{krakow} former royal capital, day 1

January 1, 2017

Happy 2017!

Krakow was my last major city in Poland. That doesn’t mean I didn’t spend some time in a very small country village in the southeastern portion of the country right near the border of Ukraine, but anyway, Krakow was my last city stop.

What kind of sucked the first day I was in town was that it was raining almost the entire day. In the pictures you can see a bit of blue in the sky, but really not much, and when it was coming down, it was really coming down! This meant part of the day was spent avoiding getting drenched, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to explore Krakow’s giant Rynek (town square). You could literally put buildings upon buildings inside the square. I also did some shopping and finally found myself a poppy-printed scarf that I really liked. I also was able to make it down to the Wawek Cathedral and Castle (in the horrible rain). The pricing scheme at Wawal is a little strange because you have to pay to see each “room” of the castle, but in the end, well worth it! I mean, who doesn’t love a fire-blowing dragon to end your time in a royal palace?
