krakow undoubtedly has one of Europes most memorable old towns, definitely the best during this trip. Walking from the train station towards old town a simply breathtaking sight meets you as the street opens up onto the main market square. The churches, market hall, town hall and so on are just magnificent, other towns like Bratislava are simply no match for this. The sheer size of the place also plays a role in upping the wow factor I guess. I snapped a few quick shots but they don’t really do the place justice.

In order not to rush too much, we let that be it and pretty much just took it easy from there on out. Tomorrow we visit Auschwitz, a few night shots of the main square will have to tide you over.
