1.Warsaw, Old Town ( through my fisheye camera)
Totally rebuilt after WWII but using plans & photos to recreate it in it's original style.
Very popular with locals & tourists, comes in hundreds of flavours- too many to choose!
Lots to be found on walls & buildings usually depicting war & revolution type themes.
231 m high & has a viewing balcony on the 30th floor for a birds eye view of this city.
Luckily it also has a lift :)
We caught a Harry Potter style train between Warsaw & Krakow giving us a better view of the flat Polish countryside planted with root vegetables.
A little bit of heaven for any shopper, lots of stalls selling jewellery, amber, linens, treen...
A place everyone should see once...
Much smaller than I imagined but the rooms of victims' belongings will be something I'll never forget.
8. Auschwitz 2- Birkenau.
The sheer size of this camp gives you the realisation of how many people never left this place & the remains of the huts give real insight on how the few chosen to work were treated.
9. The Wieliczka Salt Mines.
A huge tourist attraction & well worth a visit with an English speaking guide. You soon forget how far you are underground as there is so much to see & hear. You can even get married there if the fancy takes you.
10. St Francis' Basilica.
Famous for it's fabulous stained glass windows, with this one entitled "God in the Act of Creation" being the biggest of them all.
Please hop on over to Shimelle's blog where others will also be sharing their 10 on the 10th today.
