Today was such a moving day..
Today I’ve been to Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz Birkenau.
Today I wen to the Saltmine in Kraków it’s a mine 300 meters under ground with 9 floors, 2000 chambers and more than 300 square meters it would take like 6 months to discover the whole mine.
To tourists 20 chambers and 3 floors are available which already takes 2-3 hours to visit. There’s a lot to walk, you will walk about 3 kilometers and will still see only 1 % of the whole mine.
So .. this morning 08.08.2015 I flew off to Krakow really excited for what advantures will wait for me.
The first challenge was definitely finding my hotel which is hidden on the last corner of the town.
