Everyone asked us why are you going to Krakow? Prague they get...it's sort of the upscale touristy place everyone wants to see, but what's in Krakow besides Auschwitz? Many of the buildings here are original; the Nazis took this area as their own, so they didn't bomb the hell out of it. It's small, so easy to get around and walking is much easier because they don't have those annoying tiny cobblestones that are impossible to walk on without pain. Plus, there are tourists, but not nearly what one finds in other places.
The elevator--we're on the 4th floor--is the original, and this building is OLD. They do have plans to renovate, but not before we leave.... We barely fit with our luggage and 3 people. I mean barely. There is no safety door...the first pic shows the moving elevator coming down.
More pictures of the elevator, because I can't get over how old and scary it is. And tiny. And rickety.
