Krakow to Warsaw
Krakow Travel Blog› entry 4 of 6 › view all entries
I woke up (slightly hungover) with a few hours to spare until my train to Warsaw. I thought I'd visit the Wawel Castle which was stunning! It was very quiet as it wasn't the right time of year for tourists but that was suprisingly a good thing as it made it stress free. I spent my morning there exploring the castle & cathedral & I also took in the stunning views of the city, until it was time for me to go to the train station. As I had discovered that everything was more or less within walking distance I headed off on foot taking in once more the sights I had seen over the previous days.
When I reached the Barbican, just outside the old town walls, I was wished on my way by a group of friendly musicians performing in traditional dress & went on my way.
I slept most of the way on the train (due to my heavy night before) but did meet a man who was from Aberdeen. Once every year he books a week off, goes to the airport & books the cheapest flight he can find & explores that country for the week before heading back home.
When I reached Warsaw, I walked out of the station & immediately realised that Warsaw was a hell of a lot bigger than Krakow, so hailed a taxi to take me to my hotel. I arrived around tea time so I headed off to find a restaurant. I found a main road, so I followed it and to my surprise found a bear enclosure on the pavement which I thought was extremelly odd!!(I later found out it was part of the zoo.) I ended up at the river & found the old town. The heavens opened so I dived into a restaurant, ate & then walked back to my hotel.
