I ♥ Krakow

It only took three days, actually just the first evening, for me to know that Krakow would be one of my favorite European cities.  This week I’ll be posting photos and stories from our adventures in Krakow, but here are a few of my favorite things.

Beer flavored with ginger syrup — I know, I had the same initial response, but it is very good.

Strolling through Old Town and the Rynek (the main square) — morning, afternoon, evening, anytime was enjoyable.

Strolling through the Planty, a city park that encircles the Old Town — ditto.

Polish food — pierogi and potato pancakes, yummy!

My new plan is to spend a summer in Krakow studying Polish (after I finish my dissertation, of course).

See how happy I am in Krakow!

    You sound just like me when I made my second trip to Krakow (and first as a graduate student) during my year researching in Europe. I think I vowed to bone up on Polish and to do my next project on Poland just so I could spend more time there.
