Trip Report Back from Central Europe

Jump to last reply

Us two oldsters have returned this week from Central Europe. Sure good to be back in your own bed, and not wrestling with those comforters. Our tour schedule had me celebrating my birthday at Auschwitz which was something different (but did have a party at Krakow Jewish restaurant later). Here's a summary without comments (but I do have many impressions for sure).

In Warsaw area: reconstructed Old Town Sq., Lazienki Park with Chopin memorial, dinner in a country home, visit to a ballet school, the Royal Castle, Heroes of the Ghetto monument, Chopin piano recital/dinner in a manor house, checking genealogy records

In Krakow area: Wawel Castle and Cathedral, old Market Sq. with Cloth Hall, St. Mary's Cathedral with Stwosz altarpiece, Jagiellonian Univ. courtyard, art in Czartoryski, the once thriving Jewish ghetto in Podgorze, Old Jewish Quarter with dinner at ul Szeroka, Schindler's factory, Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps incl. interivew with survivor Mr. Smollen, university lecturer on "Krakow in the Time of Copernicus," dinner at Radisson Hotel with folk group and at Pod Anilolami, Zakopane village near Tatra Mnt. with lunch at Ziebel's Ranger Station, Sacred Heart Mass with procession at Chocholo village, Czestochowa shrine and Jasna Gora Monastery
