I got to spent a week in beautiful and cold Poland, which was overall very interesting and surprisingly nice. I guess I didn't know what to expect from it because I had not visited eastern Europe before. However, it was such a positive experience, and I will surely visit again. We stayed at a hotel in Krakow, the second biggest city of Poland. It was very cold, but sunny and a clear blue sky. We spent some time touring the city and its surroundings. Apparently, Krakow has the biggest market square of Europe. And luckily enough we came at the right time of the year, having christmas decorations all over the city. At the market square they had set up a christmas market and big tree.

Christmas tree in the mall, which I spent a lot of my time (and money)
Church in the old town. There are so many, at least one in every street I believe. Poland is still very religious.

In a side street is the Krakowska manufaktura Czekolady, a chocolate factory. Downstairs you can watch them sculpt beautiful things out of chocolate, then in the back there is a story where they sell all kind of yummy things. And upstairs is a cafe, with the best hot chocolate and cappuccino with latte art.
