Currently in Kraków. Half of the old town is occupied with construction works, which expand with each passing day. Sights like this all over the city. Sort of a vent post, but probably best to give Kraków a miss this year if you were planning on going there.
Wawel Castle, one of the main tourist hotspots (though one I found completely disappointing for that reason), is also currently undergoing renovation. The same was found in two separate churches in the old town, which completely disrupted the spiritual experience.
This morning I woke up and walked out the front door of the hotel I'm staying at and this was literally right out the front door. I'm even staying on the south side of the river and the works keep expanding further and further with each passing day.
>>1652530>>1652531>>1652539I live in kraków and it is absolutely normal here at that part of year to have some construction works. Major constructions in bronowice are supposed to end in october so i am in positive mind. And as you said construction works are scaring tourists from visiting this shithole so i am fine with that
>>1652548Why is it a shithole when most people consider it the best town in Poland?
>>1652548>it's normal for half the city to look like shit for the main tourist city.Holy shit, I've been all across Poland this summer and Kraków has honestly so far been a fucking embarrassment. Between this and the sheer quantity of tourist traps and tickets for everything, Kraków might just be on par with Warsaw for the worst city in the country. At least the people here are nicer, I guess.
>>1652530well that sucks. I love Krakow.
One more from walking around this evening. What a state.
>>1652530>>1652531>>1652539>>1652655The whole city doesn't exist solely for your amusement, fuckhead. They're running a few infrastructure projects, have you spoken to anyone about it? Ooo, dlaczego, nie znasz język polski?
What is Krakow building....
>>1652821Jestem zaręczone z bardzo qt polską dziewczyną i uczę się mowić po polsku ale ok retardAnd you say that as though everybody in this carcinogenic shitheap of a city doesn't speak English as well.
>>1652856Let's call it an expansion pack.
Ahh, Kraków...Update: the works outside the hotel I'm staying at hit mentioned previously a water main and now there's no water. Glad this is my last night here.
I live in this shitty city. there is actually nothing to do or see here, I don't know why people come here.Go to warszawa or wroclawkrakow jest chujowe.
Wow sorry to hear about the construction in Krakow. I was there a year ago and had a wonderful time. Just got back from Sicily and the construction was a hot mess.
I've never understood this>construction in the middle of tourist season
>>1653217You're right, anon. Wrocław is much, much nicer. Thanks for the advice.Warszawa is disgusting, though.
>>1652570Pole hereKrakow is only for tourists too stupid to actually go to nice places so they choose the most popular ones, literally the London of Poland
What do I think of Gdansk? That is the only polish place i have visited yet
Hey can't be as bad as London... imagine being a tourist wanting to see Big Ben all your life and it looks like this hahaha
>>1654619Imagine being a tourist in London and wanting to see Big Ben but on your way there you get stolen from and then stabbed, also if you miraculously get there in the end, it looks like that
>>1653217Salt mine is nice for a couple of hours.
>>1654619That fucking shit got me last year. Still pissed. Hope they work around the clock to get it done.
>>1654663No anon they're working ON the clock
>>1654619lmao was in London last week and was quite disappointed by that. but otherwise it was nice.
>>1652821>a few This is too much.
>>1653287You really think that big infra work is quick enough to be completed outside of tourist season in countries like Poland? That shit is time consuming.
When I was a kid, I heard a lot of negative things about Poland, so I never had a strong desire to visit. I know I'm probably very wrong, but it's hard to undo decades of conditioning.
>>1654847Find a Polish pussy. That'll motivate you to visit it.It's actually a great country. Been to Torun and Gdansk / Tri-city. Will go to Poznan in September. Warsaw is shit though.
