Krakow – Poland

I am an obsessive travel planner. I decide to travel to a place months in advance and I obsessively research every inch of the city/country. Maybe that’s a good thing, optimize time if you know exactly where to go and the cool and odd things about the place.

We stayed at a hostel very close to the Krakow Market Square. We just dropped the bags an went out for a walk, when the first oddity struck me. Well, I had seen photos of the church many times, but it is always different seeing it in front of you! It is just an odd church. Well, for starters, the different towers of St. Mary’s Church and the many legends why they are different. My favourite (a bit of grim story) is the story of two brothers, both architects, that were designing a tower each. One of the brothers grew jealous of the other brother’s work and murdered him. Once the brother was out of the way, he had the chance to building a taller and more impressive tower. Is it true? Who knows! Well, once of those urban legends that just perpetuated through the years.

Brilliant place and I am definitely going back!
