Now that I’m settled in here and life has calmed down a bit, i want to share more of my experience in #CentralEurope last month. After Wrocław, we got back in the car and drove east through the countryside of #LesserPoland to #Kraków, the country’s cultural center and historic capital. The name Kraków has been in my vocabulary since i was a little boy. It’s where my family originated, and for that reason it’s a place I’ve dreamt of visiting for years. After checking into our apartment, we got out into the city quickly. i was eager to get out onto the #RynekGłowny, the main square in the Old Town. Krakow’s is the largest medieval square in Europe, dating back to the 13th Century, and Kraków itself is the only major city in Poland that wasn’t destroyed during the Nazi occupation. Walking into the square was surreal and overwhelming. Yes, i cried. i mean, I’d been looking at photos of this place for i-don’t-know-how-many years, and there it finally was, right before my eyes. It was #breathtaking, and the photos will never do it justice. After dinner we took a night stroll back through the square, the lights on the buildings mirroring the lights in the faces of the locals, crowds of them, out celebrating their city. After all it was a Sunday, and we know how the Poles love their holy day.
