    Galeria Krakowska is the largest shopping center in the heart of Krakow and probably one of the largest in Poland. It is certainly one of the most modern shopping centers in the country and probably in Europe too. It was opened to the public only in 2006. We certainly find this shopping center to be very attractive and a great place to hang around...

  • Laces from Koniakow

    Laces from Koniakow are known all over Poland and abroad. Tableclothes, doilies but also beautiful underwear are all handmade of cotton twine. Frankly speaking, all those g-strings and bras divided the small community of Koniakow in half. Some consider them a real disgrace, the others think that this is a way to keep up with modern times and a...

  • Polish Local Crafts

    I've found that the best place to buy local crafts in Poland is Zakopane. They have by far the largest selection and the cheapest prices. Here you can find leather crafts such as slippers or traditional jackets, embroided traditional costumes made out of linen and wool, as well as wool sweaters and linen table coverings. You can find all kinds of...

    You can often find street vendors in Warsaw. Many of them sell crap: huge Russian bras, plastic radios, chinese lamps and other things you won't buy.Sometimes however you can meet a person who sells good products at fair price. I personally think that those vendors are at least worth a little attention. In Zakopane and Tatra mountains - oscypek,...

    This little market was along the road to Pajezsno. Not every shopping experience needs to be glamorous or pricey to be satisfying. My daughter takes a lesson from our wonderful guide, Gosia here. An attempt at the language and the money exchange can be a challenge...but fun.
