Poland 2016

Red Zebra has been on its travels again, this time to Poland. We travelled from Warsaw on our way to Krakow where we stopped for a visit at the Pauline Monastery of Jasna Gora in Czestochowa, the most important pilgrimage center in Poland

From our base in the beautiful town of Krakow with its marvelous collections of Gothic and Renaissance buildings. The old part of the city is dominated by the imposing Wawel Castle and the Cathedral.

We visited the famous Wieliczka salt mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Auschwitz concentration camp, which has been designated as a monument to its victims and declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Having visited Dachau in the early 1970's I chose not to take the large camera along but used Helen's new compact to look at this monument of mansí inhumanity to man. The outcome is five images to reflect the atmosphere of the camp which is now Polandís number one visitor attracti0n.

Our travels then took us to Wroclaw a mixture of rebuilt medieval town center and communist housing and industry with a fabulous Botanical Gardens. Finally on to Warsaw where we experienced the splendor of the Polish capital and were intrigued to witness the visit of the Iranian Minister for Foreign Affairs visit to the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.
