When I told to some of my friends at work that I have decided to come to Polish seaside at the beginning of March, they asked me if I am crazy or stupid. They did not know though that I simply needed some rest from what I have in a crowded city on a daily basis. And yes, my vacation was boring as hell. But also – the best I could choose out of all the options.
I was supposed to publish something else today, but I think this could wait for the next year. Indeed, the next year – time flies so fast. Most of us are already tired of 2016, they are happy that it finally ends and 2017 is supposed to bring something better. For me though 2016 was a good year, better than the previous one, but still – there are things I can improve on.
Yes, I know last time I posted was like billion years ago, however I decided to spend this evening to share some of Kraków – you can know it as Cracow as well which is a commonly used English name for this city in Poland. I was there last weekend and I made some pictures of the places that I visited. I must say that I am not surprised that this city is very popular amongst tourists!
Phew… if you follow my Facebook page you surely know that my old laptop burned, so I had to get a new one (thanks God for installment plans!). But I am back. With new energy and new pictures. This time I visited the city of Łódź, located very centrally and just 1,5 hours by train from Warsaw.
Warsaw has plenty of tourist spots that are located outside the center – one of them is a Wilanów Palace that is located in Wilanów area – known for the fact that it is considered to be one of the richest areas of Warsaw. The palace area is well maintained and what is especially eye catching are the gardens around it.
People post a lot of pictures from different viewing points and terraces – they can be city views from some great heights or they can cover something very eye catching- hills, rivers, mountain ranges etc. In Warsaw there is one very popular viewing point and it is located in the Palace of Culture of Science. What makes it unique is that it is also open at night during summer weekends.
Chopin Airport in Warsaw is not very far away from the center – it’s only a few kilometres. Yet – Warsaw is a very busy city and in rush hours traffic jams in some certain places are very high. Once it took me over an hour to get from Warsaw’s Central Station to Chopin Airport by taxi. But it was before the times where some easier solutions have been introduced.
