Wawel castle and giant stalking beer men

So wandering the streets of Krakow old town you will stumble across some beautiful buildings and architectural delights, not to mention some of the friendliest and most helpful people in Europe!

Take time to relax and watch the world go by in the old town square but then head out to some of the sights to be found a hop, skip and a jump away.

One of the areas we liked was Wawel and its surroundings, sited near the Vistula  river and overlooking a huge open expanse of parkland where the locals come to hang out, picnic and watch the world go by.

One of the city’s myths is that of the Wawel dragon and it’s commemorated on the lower slopes of the Wawel Hill by a metal statue that occasionally belches out a plume of flame!

Here’s Neil getting stalked by the giant walking beer in the parkland beneath Wawel castle . . .  . (I will devote a post to this squishy little mascot later!)

I will upload some photos of the castle itself that sits within the Wawel complex when I figure out where on earth I have stashed them!!!
