I får lige lidt billeder fra det sidste døgn. På det største torv i den gamle by er der en gammeldags vandpumpe. Nogle gange drypper den et stykke tid, og som I kan se, er duerne ret begejstrede!
Today has been my last, complete day in Krakow. Tomorrow I'll be going home. Don't really want to - there are still so many things I need to see!
You'll get a few photos from the last 24 hours. On the main square in the old town, there is an old-fashioned water pump. Sometimes it is dripping for a while, and as you can see, the pigeons are very fond of this!
Down by the castle, Wawel, there is a dragon. Last night I managed to get a picture, while it spit fire. Very cool thing to have in a city!
The fountain on the smaller square at my hotel was performing as well. With different heights of water coming up and different colors.
Udstillingerne var på en måde interaktive, fordi lyset, rummenes indretning og endda gulvet skiftede, alt efter hvad det handlede om.
Billedet viser "Schindler's liste" - alle navnene på de jødiske arbejdere, sat op på indersiden af en KÆMPE presse til det metal, der skulle blive til emalje-ting.
Museet kan varmt anbefales. Det handler om tyskernes besættelse af Polen, og også hvad det betød for polakkerne. Udstillingerne om den jødiske getto er rent ud sagt skræmmende.
Today I went to the museum at Schindler's factory. The most well planned and educational, but also the most horrifying museum I ever visited!
The exhibitions were interactive in a way, since the lights, the room decorations and even the floor was different, depending on the subject.
The picture shows "Schindler's list" - all the names of the Jewish workers, written inside a GIANT press for the metal that would become enamel-stuff.
The museum is highly recommendable. It is about the German occupation of Poland, and also what it meant to the Polish people. The exhibitions on the Jewish ghetto are terrifying.
Efter den tur må jeg indrømme, at jeg har fået død og ødelæggelse nok. Der måtte en øl og lidt strikning til, inden jeg gik tilbage mod hotellet.
Nu skal jeg så bare have købt de sidste souvenirs og nydt det sidste stemning. Hold op, det er en dejlig by!
Going back from the museum, I passed the "Heroes of the Ghetto square", which holds an installation with empty chairs, in remembrance of how the ghetto was emptied.
After this trip I must admit I had had enough of death and destruction. Had to have a beer and a bit of knitting before returning to my hotel.
Now I just need to buy the last souvenirs and enjoy every last drop of the atmosphere in this city! It is a wonderful city!
