And that’s it for my Poland pictures! I think about the country all of the time and can’t wait to visit again, hopefully this year. Warsaw had the beauty of Prague, and Krakow had the grit of Budapest, but it seemed like neither had been really touched by tourism the way those more-popular cities have. Everything was still cheap, and nothing was ever crowded. And the food! I mean, they have their own kind of donut. Come on. I ❤️ Poland!

A marker remembering All Saints’ Church in All Saints’ Square (Plac Wszystkich Świętych), which was built in the 1200s and demolished in 1838. Stones from it were used to built a wall around Rakowicki Cemetery, and its bronze fountain can be seen at St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church in Krakow. Note the awesome Krakow tram in the background, so modern, ooh la la!

Our final ice cream in Krakow was from Lody na Starowiślnej, which usually has a half-hour line, but we happened to visit while it was sprinkling outside and ice cream didn’t sound as appealing to the less-impassioned. This tiny shop is famous and beloved in Krakow, but it wasn’t our favorite. The women behind the counter DID NOT care about us, so we didn’t get to try a bunch of flavors before deciding on this super-appetizing plastic cup full of bakaliowe, a Polish ice cream made with fruit and nuts.
