Cracovia - now what a wonderful place. A lot of people say this would be the nicest old town of Europe - maybe they are right!
Here you have a lot of things to visit: In walking distance of our hotel you find the biggest medieval square(200 x 200 meters) in perfect conditions,something like 700 churches, all over the places. The famous covered market hall, the Jewish Quarter and finally the Wawel Castle!
And everywhere very friendly people, now we know what makes Eastern Europe so attractive!
Inside Wawel Castle - isn´t it great?
Great shops and bars in the Jewish Quarter, right next to the old Synagoge...

Another wonderful breakfast and then the next border, right into Poland! It is so nice in the European Union, nobody checks you - you just drive through - perfect! Already the 4th country on this trip - incredible!
After an easy ride a short coffee stop, before we visit the ancient concentration camp(KZ) of Auschwitz. Interesting but terrible, anyway - a part of history...
Our breakfast table - we had to show you this - isn´t it nice?
Our first stop in Poland - the language looks a lot easier than Czech, doesn´t it...
To tell you the truth - it was really interesting to visit this place, but nobody of our group could stand the whole tour - it was too tough.
Lot´s of people from all over the world come to visit this place - even from Israel.
In the afternoon we continued to one of the nicest cities of Europe - Cracovia!
