5 years ago I loved every second of my first ever trip to Poland. I was in awe of Krakow’s main square Rynek Glowny, sipped hot raspberry vodka with friends and tried and failed to order food in Polish from a ‘milk bar’.
Back in Krakow today I wonder what took me so long to return. On this occasion the Christmas markets featured, I sipped craft Polish cider, brunched on French food and happily I’m still in awe of Rynek Glowny.

Food Highlights: Brunch at French bakery Charlotte, zapiekanki (the ultimate toastie) on Plac Nowy in Kazimierz, smoked cheese at the Christmas markets, floor to ceiling vodka, beer, cider and every other drink you can think of at Regionalne Alcohole.
Getting to Krakow: The 8 hour train ride from Bratislava included stops at Breclav in the Czechia and Katowice in Poland.
Where I Stayed: Chopin Hotel Crakow – 15 minute walk from the main train station. A 10 zloty Uber ride to the Rynek Glowny. Excellent wifi.
Take a peek at the next stop on the Mystery Tour.
