The week before mother's funerals we were in Cracow. The weather was cloudy, even rainy at times.

The hotel was tidy but very basic. The location, however, just outside the old town and near the railway station was excellent.

We visited the Christmas market: had some pierogi and mulled wine.

And saw sights: Sukiennice, Wawel Royal Castle, Rynek Underground, Old Synagogue in Kazimierz...

One can fly to Cracow very handily and cheaply these days. I'm almost tempted to return there to buy the bag I left in the shop; I've had bad luck with my bags since then.
