The most remembered feeling - I'm somewhere in Middle Ages. A large square(Main Market Square ) in the city centre and a lot of small narrow streets that stretches from this square. This streets are full of different small shops: groceries, bakeries, confectioners, clothing store and others. And all buildings are very old but all accurate and very beautiful.
Very imressive is Wawel(or Royal) Castle. Especially when you see it near the river Wisla.
In contrast to for example Prague or Odessa Krakow was a quiet city. You can relax even in the very centre of the city
In the night I visited some music clubs and noticed that they differ greatly from ukrainians:-). There were many clubs that are devoted to definite music styles and this clubs had many rooms. The entrance was free! We in Ukraine have free discos only in schools:-). Other even in forgotten village are chargeable.
The most interesting adventure took place on my return to the motel:-). I retorned alone because in my tourist group only I wanted(and it was interesting for me) to see the night life of Krakow.
People in my tourist group said me earlier that our motel is only 1 km from the Krakow.
I missed my last bus:-). I could get a taxi. But I decided to get to my motel on foot. I needed about one hour to get to the outskirts of Krakow. I ran or went on foot. In one supermarket I had a rest and then went as I thought to overcome my last km. It was outside Krakow and all that was on my way to the motel: road, fir-tree and darkness. After 1 km I didn'd find my motel. After second too. After each turning I hoped to see the light of my motel but I didn't see it! It was not jolly!:-) Especially when I knew that I go the right way and that we have in the morning to leave to Prague. Finally I met one motel where a woman in reception told me that my motel is on my way but 3km far. Nevertheless I was glad that I went the right way.
After 2-3 hours of my trip on foot I got to my motel:-).
Next morning we bused on my night way and it was merry to see from the bus and in the day light:-).
