My Trip to Poland with Zen: Day 11 – September 5, 2015.

Today I spent a great deal of the morning searching for a great gift for my niece Olivia. I had in mind a necklace made of amber for which Poland is so famous.

After shopping a bit in the Cloth Hall (see below), I went up to the Sukiennice Museum on the 2nd floor of the Cloth Hall which features great 18th Century Polish artists. A couple of my favorites are below although the images were difficult to take because flashes are not allowed.

On the way out of the museum, there is a balcony on the second story of the Cloth Hall that affords a wonderful view and photo opportunity of old Krakow.




For dinner I went to the Jewish quarter which features restaurants at which Klezmer music (Jewish folk music), is played.  It was fantastic and I wish I’d heard of it before.


This is what a perfect bowl of Zurek and poor handwriting looks like. Had some of this with pierogi.

Later I continued the musical theme and went to a Jazz Club in a cellar from the 1400s.

After a couple of sets and drinks, I was off to bed.
