Having reached the Jewish district of Kazimierz, we settled for some lunch right at the heart of the many Jewish restaurants. Followed with a short walk to settle down, we went to the venue which has been at the heart of Polish history ages after ages – the Wawel Castle.

The key attraction that we wanted to see was the Big Sig of Krakow – The Sigismund Bell, bigger and older than the much coveted Big Ben of London. Weighing at a massive 18 metric tons and having casted in Krakow in 1520, this bell will make you wonder how it was actually brought up the Bell Tower!

With the river Vistula on one side, and the Polish flag flying high above the Wawel Castle on the other, with the soft light of the setting sun creating that perfect ambience of soothe – so much like Krakow in the air. We paused for a while to ponder over a drink and some light bites in the restaurant located inside the Wawel Castle.
