Krakow symbol is the Dragon!
The dragon is the cities symbol!!
He guards the Wawel castle. I have pictures of the Krakow Dragon sculpture - just keep looking ahead at my pictures. My favorite memory - well there were too many, but in relation to this famous dragon, it had to be when Matt and I toured the dragons cave.

Last but not least- St. Wojciech Church- the smallest building on the square and the oldest church in Krakow (around 1000 years). It is so small that by many foreign tourists is claimed to be a luxurius toilet.
There are plenty of Cyber Cafe's in Krakow. Some of them are actually open 24-hours. Most main and side streets off the Market Square have a least one cyber cafe.
They are very cheap, $1-3 per hour. They are also crowded and pretty smoky. Some computers are using the Polish language and staff does not always know how to change it to English.
There is the left-luggage office (checkroom)in the main building of Railway Station. You can left your things here ... Cracow lies in a region of temperate climate. Weather changes are frequent due to the friction of humid air masses arriving from the Atlantic Ocean and dry, continental masses of air incoming from the East. The average annual temperature fluctuates between 6° to 10° C. July is the warmest month and January the coldest. Western winds, conducive to rain fall, blow during Summer, whereas during Winter there are predominantly eastern winds, decreasing the amount of precipitation.

The Divine Mercy has been worshipped spontaneously on the first Sunday after Easter since World War II. Officially, the Feast had first been instituted in the Krakow dioceses by Franciszek Cardinal Macharski in 1985. In subsequent years, the Bishops of other Polish dioceses followed his example. In 1995 at the specific request of the Polish Episcopate, the Holy See issued a decree which permitted the celebration of this Feast in all Polish dioceses, provided the liturgical order for this day is preserved. On 30 April 2000, the Holy Father, John Paul II proclaimed this Feast to be celebrated in the entire Church.
The Sanctuary is located in the outer portion of Krakow, ul. Siostry Faustyny 3, 30-420 Krakow Poland. For more information, see www.milosierdzie.pl.
