September 14 (Wednesday)

Breakfast at hotel. One of the largest spreads yet. The coffee was very good as well.

Left the hotel at 10:00 am for a guided tour of Krakow. This time our tour guide was Grzegorz himself.

Started out with the Main Market Square, a short walking distance from the hotel, supposedly at 4 hectares it is the largest Market Square in Europe.

The St. Mary's Basilica has an interesting history and one of the highest Churches. It has a replica of the Black Madonna as well as The Passion of Christ.

Visited The Basilica of St Francis (Bazylika Sw. Franceszka), the Dominican Church was at the other end

Went on to Wawel Hill renaissance Royal Castle and Cathedral, some people went up to the Bell Tower and the rest of us stayed in the Cathedral.

At the tour end, went into lunch at Pod Wawelem.

After lunch, it started raining and the group split up with some going to visit the Old Jewish Quarter - Kazimierz.

We came back to the hotel to get our jackets, buy an umbrella and had tea and Zywiec in the bar.

Went out shopping bought a TShirt for Sanjit and amber jewelry for myself.

Met Grzegorz in front of St. Mary's Basilica, and then proceeded walking to the restaurant seeing many other sites on the way.

Dinner at MikoĊ‚aj Wierzynek's House with live folk music and Polish folk dance.

Gregortz appears to be more friendly and has become more like the type of guides we are used to.
