We went on a museum tour on our 3rd day: Warsaw Uprising Museum, the PRL, and the Neon Museum. After visiting the Chopin monument, we ate at the Koszyki market filled with international cuisines.
By train, it took us less than 2 hours and 30 minutes to reach Krakow, and we enjoyed an evening stroll.
Day 4. Auschwitz – Birkenau And Afternoon Visit In Krakow
We joined a guided tour to the Auschwitz – Birkenau from 8 AM and returned to Krakow by 5:30 PM. A visit to the two concentration camps is highly recommended. Then, we ended the night with a good stroll around the city and had dinner at Pod Baranem, one of our favorite places to eat in Poland.
On this day, we visited two charming villages: Zalipie and Tarnów. Zalipie is a very picturesque village with houses decorated inside and out with lovely paintings of flowers. Meanwhile, Tarnów had several museums, with one dedicated to gypsy culture.
We also visited a Jewish cemetery with piles of tombstones, took a stroll at the Christmassy square, and ate local cuisines at Tatrzanska.
We visited the Salt Mines through a guided tour. Though the visit was short, it was fun and insightful. Then, we walked around Plaza Mayor and had dinner in Kazimierz at a cool restaurant named Warsztat.
