Kraków, Poland was another city that I had not heard much of and blindsided me. It is a beautiful old city full of good and bad history that the city remembers.

We started off our stay in Kraków with a trip to the salt mines. The mine was enormous and included substantial sculptures, a large chapel and salt lakes. You may be surprised by this (not really), but everything, from the ground, ceilings and walls were salt. After the salt mines, we went to the "Kraków Under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945" exhibition, which was located in the administrative building of Oskar Schindler's factory. The exhibition was interesting and sad, it highlighted a tough era in Poland's past. Once we had finished up at the exhibition we hopped on a big golf buggy, the driver pumped up some polish death metal and we went to find a polish Milk Bar. In Kraków, the Milk Bars are not convenience stores as they are at home, they are cute cafes that sell great dumplings and freshly squeezed juices. I will never get over my grapefruit juice. We spent the rest of our stay walking around and enjoying the sites.

Also, during our stay in Poland we visited Auschwitz Concentration Camp. It was quite the experience, one that is hard to put into words. My friends and I mostly walked on in silence, it was depressing and moving. Whilst, it was an experience filled with sadness it is definitely one that I do not regret.

The countries I visited in Eastern Europe were beautiful and marked with a tragic recent history.


The next stop on my winter in Europe 14'/15' was Prague, Czech Republic.


Thanks for reading!

  15. It must've been such an experience visiting a place where so much history lives. I've read too many a story about the Concentration Camp and I honestly do not know how I would react if I ever set foot there, but fascination is a propeller of curiosity and I'd still like to visit the place one day. You've taken some fantastic photos, Nat, and I'm glad you enjoyed Poland. (Ignorance is on my side as well because I have not heard of Krakow, much to my embarassment.)

    Enjoy the Czech Republic and the new week!

  32. the photos you took in the mines are beautiful, you captured the atmosphere well. Fascinating and interesting, a complete contrast to the emotions at the concentration camp I'm sure.
