Travel Blogs from Krakow
By now, the fun novelty of road travel in Poland has well and truly worn off, especially since the day was hot and draining. The journey from Lublin to Krakow was mostly single track, so we had to endure our usual quota of bullying black cars and suicidally overtaking black cars. There were very many villages and small towns along the way, where we …
It is time to meet Odilo Globocnik.
He was a thoroughly odious and detestable character, described variously as "the vilest individual in the vilest organisation" and "the worst man in the world".

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Pugetow Krakow
An exquisite hotel. It is like staying in a mini stately home. Our room had a gorgeous sitting room. But the amazing staff make the place.
