Poland I


There is a plan to create Poland chronicle (that is divided into several parts).
Poland is a big surprise for me, I was too skeptical about it before the trip.

Poland starts from airplane. Not Poland, but Poland spirit. Poland has its own spirit.

The first thing, when you are going with small LOT airplane, there is a snack/breakfast (something almost unreachable for AirBaltic), the interesting thing about snack, that all snacks are made in Poland (except Ketchup).

Warsaw local country airport is great attraction too, it is controlled by local army, so there is specific check-in. Especially when you are looking to strange for them.

Warsaw – Krakow flight was one of the most extremal ones. The plane was normal, it was very hard to heard anything during the flight. But landing..
First landing was unsuccessful, second landing was successful but airplane decided to make a huge drift, there were 3 seconds (scary moment) until airplane got back to straight.

    It’s so great to find some impressions of Poland by Latvians who’ve been there. I’m still wondering where does that scepticism come from.
    I’ve never had a pleasure to travel through Poland by plane but after your experience I’d reccomend our trains. Not like telling that we have great trains cause those are quite old, more expensive than latvian and not too fast but in general there is always an opportunity that something interesting and nice can happen. It’s also not the best perspective to see Poland but still it will tell much more than siting in a plane 🙂

    Hello Tomasz, nice to meet people from Poland in the blog.

    My skepticism came from previous experience of communication with different Polish guys (more e-mail conversations), but I found that it is not right to judge country by it 🙂

    Your trains are very good, we have experience to see Bochnia salt-mines, we used trains to get there. We had travelled by quite nice train (it was not too old), probably a bit expensive, but train is the great opportunity for travelers. It allows to escape from road work problems, only thing that you cannot stop the train, where you want.
