Eastertrip to Krakow and Auschwitz

Apr, 21 || No Comments | Tags: , , , ,

I Love Krakok

Once more I was thinking about doing an Eastertrip because it’s so convenient –  you have 4 days off and don’t need to waste any holidays. After researches on the web I found a site with a couple of party hostels. Soon the Greg & Tom Party hostel was my favourite and i never have been to Krakow/Poland before!  So I was lucky enough and booked a cheap flight about 4.5 months before my trip.

Finally it was time to leave. My scheduled  flight with Lufthansa and Swiss was from Basel to Frankfurt and Krakow and back via Frankfurt to Zurich.

It was arround 5pm when I arrived at the hostel:

After 8pm we started as a warm up for our pub crawl a couple of drinking games in a great mood! Thanks at this side to Olga and Daza!

After warm up we attended in Krakok City a couple of bars and clubs and partied the whole night with great sound. One of my favourite pics I did on the toilets in a club :-D

For the next day I decided to visit Auschwitz. A dark chapter from the past. More than 1.5 million people were killed by the Nazis.  Already at the entrance from Auschwitz Birkenau 1 you were able to see the famous sign from our history books in school “ARBEIT MACHT FREI”.

For the next day sightseeing was on the plan. Krakow is a small lovely city and you can reach the most attraction by foot.
