Back to Krakow and on to NY

A final walk around Wieliczka, including a visit to the “graduation tower” for some brine therapy (Prophylactic inhalations permit to cleanse the respiratory tracts and that is why they are also referred to as nebulisation therapy, according to their website.) Salty water flows constantly down the sides, which are made of branches.

The the very efficient and comfortable train from Wieliczka to the Krakow airport and a short Uber (although we could have walked) to the nearby hotel. We decided to stay one less night in Wieliczka because we have a morning flight and need a Covid test beforehand (this test - thankfully negative- was nit required for the flight or entry to the US, but is required for our cruise out of NY on Monday). Some picks from my morning walk and I liked the roof on the train station.

After dropping the luggage at the new hotel - google maps still shows it as a forest in the satellite view -

we walked to the train station and took the 20 min trip to the old town, hoping to secure last minute tickets to the Rynek underground museum, which was closed last time we tried. Unfortunately, we were not successful, so we walked across the river and we’re lucky enough to find late tickets to the Oskar Schindler museum, which was very well done, although we were disappointed to be too late to see the film with individual’s stories.
