Travel Blogs from Krakow
Our next destination was Krakow which is the capital of Poland. On arrival we did a walking tour of the city visiting the main square and monuments of the city. Myths from this city talk about a dragon in the mountains who was killed by a hero in the town. Souvenir dragons are all around Krakow. We had a yummy dinner making the most of the cheap prices ...
... and Ruthy from Montreal. Ruthy is studying law in France, and using her weekends to travel to various towns throughout Europe. This is also her first time traveling alone, and she agrees that it’s an amazing way to meet people from around the world.
Our tour started with the North Gate of the remaining city wall and the Barbican. We learned about the city’s patron saint (whose name escapes me now) and how ...

We rode through Old Town and to the bike path by the river. We did the entire path. It was about 5 miles altogether.
