Krakow was unreal. The old town is beautiful, the cathedral is the most beautiful one I’ve seen yet, and the nightlife was EPIC! Not to mention everything was dirt cheap (though I still managed to spend too much money).
The hostel I was at was amazing, with free breakfast, dinner, unlimited vodka, legendary pub crawls, and the best staff. My polish “sister” Aja has already convinced me to come back later in my trip which is dangerous because I may never leave. A bunch of us from the hostel even got to see a soccer game and it was wild. Police with riot gear were everywhere, fans were burning jerseys, lighting flares, and itching to fight. Trying to yell along to the songs and chants was a great time, I had no idea how intense the atmosphere would be and LOVED it!
6 pub crawls and 8 nights later I’m on my way to Dresden and already missing the Krakow life.
