Wandering around Krakow

Today was our last day. As we didn’t need to be picked up for the airport until 6.30 pm, we decided to have a relaxing day, wandering around the city!

We met our friends for a drink (tea and coffee!) in our favourite restaurant, in the main square !

After saying goodbye to one of the couples, as they were heading to the airport, we took a stroll back to the castle. We have walked here a few times, but you can never get bored with it!

I wanted to see if I could get a better shot of the dragon, as it roared with fire! I did! Check out my YouTube channel to see it! I’ll post the link below!

We then strolled around the streets. It’s amazing how you see new things everyday.

What surprised me today is how much quieter everywhere is. There is definitely a lot fewer tourists about!

There are also a lot more nuns and priests around!

The sun is out, so it’s a perfect day again for photography!

If you are going to Krakow, make sure you give yourself time to just wander around! Look up and down. There are so many things to see! Beautiful architecture is everywhere, statues on buildings, as well as sculptures.

We meet our friends again for lunch, before they too head off to the airport. We choose a restaurant just off the square.

As we eat our lunch, we notice a lot of people behind us! There is a film crew and actors literally over our shoulders. People are gathering to watch and take selfies!

I ask our waiter what is going on! They are filming for a local Soap! It’s all very exciting and interesting! I don’t know for sure, but I’ve decided the main man is cheating on his girlfriend!

We have spent everyday in one particular restaurant on the square. They have some lovely tin dishes for sale at 22 PLN each! I love them and think they will be a great pot to make individual meals in. They also are red to go with my kitchen, and with the restaurants symbol on, so can’t resist buying 6! It’s a good job I’ve saved space in my case!

We say goodbye to our friends. We are the last of the 4 couples to leave. We still have 3 hours to kill, so decide to just have a little wander again!

It’s so hot we end up back in the square for the last hour, people watching !

It’s been an amazing weekend.

At 6.30 pm we are picked up for a drive to the airport! It takes less than 20 minutes to get there.

Security and passport control are all speedy too.

I can’t resist a quick look in duty free! There, on the first isle I look at, is cherry and hazelnut vodka! 16 PLN each! That’s £4 a bottle. It would be a crime not to take some home! Hubby and I can enjoy it while looking back over our photos of the trip!

Our flight home, at the moment is on time! Tomorrow we are back to work . We have had a wonderful time, with great friends, weather, good food, drink, culture and some amazing memories!
