Krakow

My first visit to Poland dates back to many years ago. It was before the shattering of the former Soviet Union and the economical and cultural revolution that followed has brought today this beautiful country as a member of the European Union. I definitely want to visit again for a first-hand evaluation of the changes.
Krakow and Katowice were the main cities that I could take a look of.
I fondly remember a street market in Katowice where traders from Ukraine were selling goods of any kind brought-in - even smuggled - through the border.
Krakow was a beauty to be discovered. The impressive Wawel Royal Castle itself and the Main Square are well worth a visit!
I had also a chance to visit the sad and horrifying site of Oswiecim, known as Auschwitz in a different language.

I have now re-visited under totally different circumstances, as Poland is now a borderless part of the EU. Very different!
