June saw us venturing to new parts of the world – Poland and the Czech Republic. Slight concern all round due to a state of emergency being declared in Prague due to extreme flooding just a fortnight before we were due to go!
But we weren’t about to let a little thing like nature gone rogue to stop us so off we trotted.
First up Krakow.We stayed in a fantastic apartment just two minutes walk from the old town square that had every possible home comfort from a washing machine and ironing board to fully kitted out kitchen.
Our apartment was called Dallas and you can find it on the Sodisapar website.
I can’t recommend this company enough, helpful friendly staff full of information on trips, trains and anything else you could possibly need to get about Krakow and the surrounding area.
Krakow itself was a revelation – compact but bursting at the seams with fascinating old buildings, meandering streets, culture and modernity blended together seamlessly.
Street performers chill out and give the chills in Krakow’s main square.
Next up, a wander around Krakow, some architecture, salt mines, a castle and a sombre lesson from history.
