However, during planning our Eastern Europe tour, my husband insisting to go to Krakow as according to the map, it is reachable from Budapest. As for me, I wanted to have Budapest-Bratislava-Vienna-Prague. He insisted on adding one destination, Krakow. And I said, no it is either Budapest-Bratislava-Vienna-Prague or Budapest-Krakow-Prague. Finally we agreed on Budapest-Bratislava-Vienna-Krakow-Prague. (And he kept asking how about Geneva? Duh..)
I don´t know what to expect about Krakow the town itself. What I know was, if visiting Krakow do not forget Auschwitz. Luckily we have Polish friends whom visiting Krakow at the same time. And our dearest friends, thank you for assisting us and being a great host. (Sorry, we could not keep up with you guys as travelling with baby really slow us down.)
So, we took advantage by pampering ourselves, like eating at this stylish sidewalk cafe at the Old Market square, feeling posh. Never did this in Barcelona, for we are afraid to expect what will be printed on the check.
And just by walking, we had a lot of things to read like this one, telling that the street (if I am not mistaken) as one of the earliest being established in the town.
