Poland was a kind of place that is not spectacular but made me want to come back soon. To this day, I miss having lunch at the Milk Bar with old Polish folks. You could never go wrong with pierogi. It was really easy to experience the ‘real Poland’. We all know it’s not so easy in some places. While visiting Warsaw, Wroclaw, Krakow and a couple more small towns around the country, I enjoyed every bit of it and had a strong feeling that I have to come back to explore more.
For me, Poland is a country of Nicholas Copernicus and Marie Curie: two of the most brilliant scientist of all time. It was great to see the traces of two great scientific mind, all over the country. It was also a very core of World World II. Most of the cities were bombed and rebuilt, parts of the countries were used to rule by different countries, and still we can see the residue of the historical facts around the country.
I got into Warsaw and out from Cieszyn, the border town of Poland and Czech Republic. I gathered the best part of the each place in photos. Like any other places, I ate a lot (of course), walked a lot and drank quite a bit!
About the photo above It doesn’t really say ‘Poland’, but it was one of the best photos I took in Poland. The happy couple was shooting a wedding photography in the old town of Krakow. I’ve never thought Poland as a romantic place to be, but now I do.
