We wandered around the castle grounds and paid a visit to the Lost Wawel exhibition, which showcased archaeological discoveries, fragments of architecture and the history of the development of Wawel Hill from the Middle Ages to modern times. The exhibition was fascinating and was a nice change to just wandering around old buildings, not really understanding the history.
We made our way down to the river via the Dragons Den, a passage from Wawel hill dug into the rock.
The rest of the afternoon was spent sitting in a cafe in the main square, drinking coffee, playing cards and watching the world go by. Krakow seemed to move at such a slow, calming pace, which I loved. We discussed how cool it would be to live here over our lattes, especially if we owned and ran a hostel! Evening was soon upon us, so we headed to McDonalds, where the funniest thing happened. A local boy of around 5 years old ran up to our table, snatched a handful of Dave's fries and ran off. His mother was right on his heels, apologizing as she passed!
Back at the hostel we met up with a couple of cool guys; Favien from France and Dan from Australia.
The night ended with a wander in search for food and this was when we found the 5 zloty kebab. We couldn't have asked for anything better, a kebab packed with meat and salad, for such a cheap price. We were soon hooked on the 5 zloty kebab!!!
