Saturday 16th May: Sightseeing in Krakow...

Saturday was the sightseeing day. The team discussed what they wanted to see, but with so much choice we cloould not agree on one thing.

So, dear reader, here is a taste of the interesting suightseeing you can do in and around Krakow.

Angela, as the AUA's #1 Poland fan, already knew Krakow well, so spent her free day on Saturday on a pleasant walk in the warm sun west of Krakow to Kosciusko Mound, a man made hill inside an army fortress with amazing views of the city and some fascinating exhibitions of Polish defence works as well as waxworks of famous Poles.

Sheila and Marie took a tour to the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

Myself, I have seen concentrarion camps before, so Mala and I headed to the Wieliczka Salt Mine outside Krakow, that contained a church carved out of the salt (you can have weddings there apparently).

In the evening Angela found an excellent traditional Polish resturant. The large piece of meat I enjoyed was devine! Pierogi were enjoyed by my fellow diners.

All in all, an excellent end to an excellent Study Tour.
