                                      An Amazingly Situated & Gorgeous Apartment

                                      5 of 5
                                      5 adults (a single female, a younger male & female couple and a retired mature gent with his retired lady wife) spent 4 nights & 5 days in this warm, comfortable, stylish, safe, fully equipped & easy to find, historic yet respectively modern, just lovely, Krakow apartment! The shower is a pleasure, one of the best I've been under! The very soft water adds to this wonderful revitalising experience! Amazing high ceilings & an experience with the way you enter the building, through the gorgeous gate and up along those stairs! Observe the historic wooden dentist chair; should be in a museum! What a brilliant location! A very short walk to the gorgeous city's main square, Rynek Glowny. But the gorgeous intriguing sites, smells, friendly people, amazing shops, yummy food & drink don't begin there, but literally from the moment you leave your apartment with the coffee shop situated right next door! But, it did take a little longer to walk to the Rynek than advised, as you just can't help yourself & pop into these shops, photograph and walk into one of the many beautifully historical churches, stop for just that one more coffee or my favourite, black tea with a slice of fresh lemon (really does work and tastes refreshingly good) & go on then, one of those MASSIVE freshly baked doughnuts with rose petal jam filling, hmmm, yummy yum yum! Don't worry about your teeth though, there's a dentist located directly below the apartment and with all the walking you'll do, you'll burn off more than you consume, I hope I did anyway! The taxi the owners organised from the airport was seamless and the best way! The driver was very friendly and chatty in good English plus informative about Krakow, it's history and current state! We visited Auschwitz and Birkenau with the same taxi company, without booking on to a tour, again the best way, as you'll see & read more! Entrance is free BUT make a donation on your way out, we did at Birkenau and buy a guidebook! It's a little out of the way, so the taxi made it comfortably convenient door to door, as a whole day is needed and it's most certainly an emotionally draining but important experience and must-do visit! Also visited Schindler's Factory & the amazing awe inspiring salt mines by train from the nearby ultra modern station with more shops & food places than I've seen in the UK under one roof! Plus of course happily got lost (hard to do) around the Jewish quarter & Krakow's gorgeous city streets! Thanks!!

                                      What a fabulous place -a gorgeous flat, clean, warm, comfortable and so convenient for the centre without being totally on top of it -which meant quiet nights and a good nights sleep after walking around all day! I can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit this fascinating city.
