Europe » Poland » Lesser Poland » Auschwitz March 6th 2015

Here are the pictures that I took on my visit to Auschwitz. While there, it was a struggle to try and judge what is and what isn't photo appropriate. There are places where pictures are forbidden and any decent human being would respect that wish. These pictures cannot even begin to do justice to what actually happened there and the emotions a person will feel walking those hallowed grounds.... read more

What happened to winter, which is like an unfulfilled promise in Poland this year? I still remember one of the last winter season when we couldn’t get out of snow still in late April. But this year it's a kind of misunderstanding. See more here>>>... read more

My final weekend of my travels during my midterm break was to Krakow Poland. This served as a good home base to get out to Auschwitz and it is a beautiful city. Poland has long been a very religious place, especially Catholic, and walking through Krakow it is evident. Everywhere I looked there was a church. This is all helped by the fact that Pope John Paul II was Polish and attended school in Krakow and would later become its Archbishop. On my first real day in Krakow, I took a free walking tour of the Old City and our guide told us that 95% of Poles consider themselves Catholic and about 60% attend church regularly. By far the largest percentages in Europe. My walking tour on my first day started out on the main market ... read more

Europe » Poland » Lesser Poland » Kraków February 17th 2015

Out of all the places that I have been in my life, there is one place that I never really had much desire to go to; and that is Poland. However, after spending a few days there in February, my opinion of Poland has changed a lot. I really enjoyed it. As we had been in Budapest before Krakow, we had to take the night train from Hungary to Poland. We all had these childish fantasies of staying up all night on the train playing cards and rough-housing. When we stepped into our room which was about 5 foot wide and 6.5 foot high, we realised that we were not going to be doing this. All six of us were in this tiny little room, and cramped is an understatement. We all had our luggage with ... read more

Many cities have extraordinary legends but Krakow is special, it has magical tales about its history. The history is everywhere, you can touch it every corner around you when you walk in this medievel city that brings you back in time. I love Poland, I was in many interesting places in the country but I especially love Krakow - its magic and lovely atmoshpere attract me all the time. I am so lucky, I visitied Krakow three times - and on every occassion I felt I got closer and closer to the secret of Krakow. It happened approximately 3,5 years ago in summer when we had a wonderful week in Krakow. It was a family trip actually with my husband, Zoli and my brothers, Csabi and Ricsi. It was great being together in this magnificant city ... read more
