Krakow, Poland 2007

In August 2007, we went to Krakow in Poland.  This was another great trip.  We stayed at the Radisson SAS Hotel which was excellent.  Krakow is highly recommended for the sight-seeing, friendly Polish people and value for money.  The city very much reveres Pope John Paul II (where he was archbishop) and exhibitions of photographs, paintings and sculptures of him are everywhere in evidence.  We visited Wieliczka Salt Mine, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Zakopane as well as travelling around Krakow itself.  And, of course, we sang at various churches (the chapel in the salt mine, St Peter's & St Paul's and the Capuchin Church), and we busked in the market square (but not for money to preserve our amateur status!).  There are plenty of concerts every night, especially at St Peter's & St Paul's Church and live music at many pubs and clubs including Ob Nova.
