Hi Katie,

Glad to hear you enjoyed Krakow. I have lived here for the last four years so its really wonderful to be reminded through fresh eyes of Krakow's Magic. Since your in the Marketing business I hope you don't mind if I put in a plug for my new website KrakowInformer :-) An online city guide to this wonderful place. And from myt experience your right about the Poles being helpful. They do go out of their way to help you. Friendly strangers in a Magical city- a travelers delight.


Krakow really is an amazing city. I am also fascinated with Eastern Europe. I lived in Krakow for 7 months and visited many of the surrounding countries.

Katie, I 'm glad that you enjoyed your trip to Poland so much. It really is a beautiful country with so much to offer and explore. If you ever get a chance to go back, perhaps only for pleasure, I do suggest you visit the city of Wroclaw and the surrounding areas. I was born in Jelenia Gora, and the terrain around there is mountains and valleys, and such beautiful scenery you won't be able to snap enough pictures to capture the beauty. Also, the "Dolno-Slask" area is home to many castles and palaces and manors, that have been rescued from ruin and restored to their previous beauty. Thanks for the story

Thanks PRJack, my hostess did suggest that your Polish grammar was wanting a bit of polish, so to speak, but I'm glad I inspired you. They need more social media gurus over here.


Wow. What a fabulous tale Katie! Thanks so much for sharing!! Though I'm of Polish heritage (hence the 'Polski-babble on twitter!) I've never been to Poland. Tales of too many far flung relatives clamouring to meet other family members turned me off. But it's tales such as yours that have gotten me thinking. That and a recently made friend who does international brand/marketing at his Warsaw-based company (BrandStorm) - which he runs from Toronto! I think I might have to accompany him on one of his business trips!
