R&R Day

Thursday was a national holiday in Poland – Corpus Christi – so most of the shops and businesses were closed. We took this as an R&R day, and traveled south by bus about 3 hours away to the Karkonosze Mountains, which are part of the Czech-Polish border. We found a bobsled roller coaster, and decided to take a quick ride. It was lots of fun! We then took the cable cars/gondolas up from the Czech side to Sněžka, the highest peak in the Czech Republic, at 1600 meters (5250 feet). At the top, we hiked down a bit to a mountaintop restaurant for lunch. After walking down a bit further, we then took a single chair lift all the way to the bottom. Spectacular views! We then stopped at the Wang church, a Norwegian stave church built in the 1200s in Vang, Norway, and moved to Karpacz in 1842 by the King of Prussia. We enjoyed dinner at an Italian restaurant back in Wrocław, with yummy ice cream for dessert from a local ice cream shop.
