Poland 2-Days Trip 2nd part; Wieliczka Salt Mine Morning Tour


I roam the city through self-guided walk accompanied by a downloaded map online starting from Krakow Train Station which is just 300 meters away to the Old town. I passed-by the Old Town's Main Square, St. Mary's Basilica (particularly famous for its wooden altarpiece carved by Veit Stoss), Wawel Castle (includes the Cathedral, the Tower, Davinci's Lady with an Ermine and Dragon's Den) and how locals and other tourists hassles on the streets. Photography and video taking is allowed.

Kraków is not only an historic and visual gem, it's Poland's second largest city and covers both banks of the Wisla (or Vistula) river. Kraków is one of the oldest cities in Poland, with evidence showing settlements there since 20,000BC. Legend has it that it was built on the cave of a dragon whom the mythical King Krak had slain.

One of the greatest works of Western Art, Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece Lady with an Ermine is without a doubt the most important picture in Polish collections. Owned by the Prince Czartoryski Foundation, the splendid portrait of Cecilia Gallerani, mistress of Duke of Milan is now on view at the Wawel Royal Castle.
