Krakow

Auchwist

Day Five - Krakow

I've wanted to go to this place for a long time. On the way we took a slight detour to visit Auchwist which was very sobering. It was a boiling hot day and to reflect of those people in the camps slaving away in such heat as well as the harsh conditions was very upsetting. The tour guides have to have a relative who was in the camp so they are quite passionate about their work.

We just set up camp and got the bbq going and that's where we stayed. We were invaded with mossies though the little biting buggers!

We decided that we would go into Krakow in the morning.

It was another beautiful day the next day and probably the most traffic we had come across. The city itself is charming with rustic buildings. There's a square and despiration for tourists to go with tour guides in their buggies. It's really cheap here and you can get amber jewellery for a good price. I was suprised at the number of nuns around all from different convents.

After lunch it was back to Ladiva to head for Poprad. One thing that struck me about Poland was the care and attention to the grave yard, the graves are well tended with flowers everywhere.
