  Deep in the forest
by KennetRose

To the north, south and especially to the east, Krakow sprawls in a series of dreary suburbs. Westwards, however, you arrive very quickly in an area of forest called Las Walski - these are the lungs of Krakow.

As well as the zoo, there are plenty of trails through the woods, where you will find, as you might expect in this most Catholic of cities in this most Catholic of countries, hidden shrines in some most surprising places.

The forest makes a wonderfully cool retreat on a hot day
