Welcome back to another throwback Thursday post, we are going to pick up where we left off previously where I shared the second part of the fourth day of our holiday in Krakow, Poland.
Day 5 & 6 of Krakow, Poland (25th and 26th June 2019) – Boat Trip and Saying Goodbye
On our last day in Krakow we had a very chilled day. We went on a boat trip on the Vistula River which runs a long side Wawel Castle. Just like the previous days the weather was really warm so being on the river was quite nice as we could get out of the sun for a bit. The boat trip lasted for about half an hour and we were told about some of the history and facts about the things we could see as we went along.
Once we got off of the boat, we headed across to one of the ‘boat restaurants’ where we had a drink and a bit of a chill.
We then went for a wonder around the Old Town to look for some lunch, we found a place that sold Zapiekanke which looks a bit like a pizza and is very tasty!
Marysia and I then went for a little walk in the afternoon which is when we decided to give the electric scooters ago. These scooters are a bit like ‘Boris bikes’ where you have to use an app to hire the scooter before it is activated. We used the scooters to go around along by the Castle and back up to the apartment where we were staying. Marysia’s parents also had a go on them before we then went and used the last bit of credit, we had on them in the park.
That evening we went and had dinner in one of the bar mleczny which translates directly as ‘milk bar’. The milk bars originally gained popularity after the Second World War due to the fact they were cheap due to being subsidized by the government and provided nourishing food. I had read about the Milk Bars before we went to Krakow and was quite interested in what it would be like so when we ate there on our final night it was really good to see what I had read about online come to life.
We then went and had a few drinks before walking back to our apartment.
Marysia and I then had an early start the following day to catch our flight back to the UK. Once we landed back in Bristol, we had to wait for our National Express bus back to Cardiff. Our journey back wasn’t too bad, and I managed to nap for quite a lot of it, I think this was a combination of my cold finally hitting me at full force and how early we started our journey. There was point just before we landed that we almost got redirected to Birmingham airport but luckily, we were able to land at Bristol airport as planned.
This is the final post from my trip to Poland with Marysia and her parents. I really enjoyed visiting Krakow, it was completely different to what I had thought it was going to be like before we went. I would really like to go back to Poland at some point and see some other parts such as Warsaw.
If you missed any of the posts, you can catch up on them here. I will be sharing some adventures from when Marysia and I hired a boat on the Norfolk Broads next week
