Last Thanksgiving we traveled to Poland for an unforgettable trip through the country. We visited Warsaw and its historical city center, the mausoleum of the martyred, the museum of the struggles, and took a delicious perogie class one night and strolled the main shopping streets and Christmas markets along the ramparts. Among other sites we took in the interesting street art in the Praga district and also noticed the Tchorek Plaques posted as tributes to the war victims around the city taking us aware were in awe at the amazing and saddening history of the country during the war.
We then went on to visit Krakow in the south. There we went to the Historical center and visited its charming shops and tasted some of the country’s world class chocolates, the Christmas markets, Oscar Schindler’s enamel factory, and the Jewish districts that were once the infamous ghettos. We took a day trip to the Wielicksa salt mine and to Auschwitz Berkenau labor camps to learn about the WWII atrocities in person. The trip was truly unforgettable and made Poland one of our favorite countries to visit yet!
