Saturday 18th May 2002

I arrived in Krakow by a morning bus from Szczawnica...on Saturday 18th May, 2002; Greeted by Marisha...what a warm welcome!!

My 3rd day in Poland, out of 9 days...

Stayed 2 days in Krakow, taking times to visit Wieliczka on the same day!...& Auschwitz/Birkenau Death Camp,...or known as Oswiecim/Brzezinka respectively....; on the following day.

After Krakow, I would continue to Czestochowa my next destination in Poland, by train...

My itineraries prior to Krakow would be:

Szczawnica...a base to explore The Pieniny..
Nowy Targ..
Zakopane, which was a base to explore Tatrzanski Park Narodowy or The Tatra National Park....

Previously to that, I was in Slovakia & Austria respectively...

Please have a visit to all my Travel Pages according to the places & countries from the above....there are lots of places to discover & lots of photos to browse through!

Thank You.

    Given Poland's unfortunate history of being coveted by various neighboring ations--it is incredible how many of the fantastic medieval buildings still stand. Must be like stepping back in time.

    Great page. Many great photos and lots of good tips. I will print some of this out when I plan my trip for next year. Is there local transportation from the city to the death camp?

    The barbican is certainly impressive, isn't it?
