As I mentioned, the main focus of our trip was to visit Auschwitz. Because things are Poland are so cheap, we organized a minibus tour to take us there with a second trip later in the day to the UNESCO Salt Mines too. It was a super long, busy day, but very much worth it.
The food itself was very healthy too, but very tasty - think vegetable broths, duck and chicken with fruit compote and vegetable hotpot. My favourite.
My Israeli Salad from an awesome Jewish restaurant - Hummus and Happiness :)
On another trip, we booked a CrazyGuide's Communist Tour around the communist areas of Kraków, Nowa Huta. This tour had even been on Michael Palin's New European programme, so it was bound to be good - and it was :) We were picked up from our hotel by a tour guide called Jakub in a communist Trabant car!
It was rather cute :) We were driven to their museum, which is an apartment set up in the old communist tower block of flats, and is done up exactly how it would have been back under communist rule.
This was taken at Schlinder's Factory, which took you through the building describing how the Nazis took over throughout the war. It was extremely interesting, and a very well laid out museum, definitely worth a visit.
