Well, Krakow certainly put on a show for me. The average temperature whilst I was there was -19°C! Even the Poles were complaining about how cold it has been. My taxi driver to the airport told me it was -22°C when he started work at 6am that morning! When travelling I love adventuring and discovering places by foot, but being outsidr in those temperatures was quite unbearable.
Despite the temperatures, my time in Poland was wonderful. Yet again a different currency to get used to (Polish Zloty), but the XE app has been fantastic and as it works offline it is preferable to relying on my maths skills.
FYI the currency in Prague, Czech Republic was the Czech Koruna and in Budapest, Hungary the currency was Forints.
I had noticed that there were loads of golf carts milling around the Town Square; so I went to check out what the deal was. The gold carts provided tours to certain areas of the town. On the basis the temperature at that time was -18°C, I felt that a private tour in a heated golf cart was a great idea. My driver Peter was from the Ukraine but passionate about Krakowian history. There was pre-recorded information that Peter played, along with some ad-hoc commentary.
Peter showed me some of Old Town, Kasimierz, the Jewish Quarter, the former Krakow Ghetto and Schindler’s Factory.
