Rain and More Perogies

A travel blog entry by jordanpurvis on May 12, 2013

... set up on the edge, while the whole time you can hear the sounds of the gunfire and the Luftwaffe overhead. Make this a 'MUST SEE' if you visit Krakow - which you really should. After leaving the museum a light rain began to fall, which I combatted by grabbing some Zapiekanka (a Polish baguette topped with what you desire) and heading towards Wawel Castle. The rain soon quit, and we toured the Cathedral, more ...

... which is under Market Square. It's the most amazing place, showing the layers of the square as it was rebuilt over the centuries. The museum has only been open a couple of years and is the most high-tech museum we've ever seen. We took advantage of a laundromat mentioned in the Rick Steve's book.

In the mines there’s lots of wooden supports, this is because when wood is exposed to salt it becomes stronger as opposed to metal which corrodes. We even saw some wood that was in the process of being petrified and had salt deposits all over it. We learnt about both the miners and the horses who worked in the mines. Apparently all the miners who worked there were free men and got paid ...
