2019 02’ – Northern Lights Trip Day 3 – Kraków, POLAND – Bottiglieria 1881

This Michelin awarded restaurant in Kraków is also rewarded Two Chefs Hats of Gault & Millau. Just tried this while I was in Kraków few days ago. It is very nice. First time in my life to try the white caviar. But, I was so sleepy till the end of the dinner because of the Jetlag.

First Dinner in Poland

It is a traditional Polish and Lemko Cuisine with all 100% natural local produce. Had a traditional Polish Mulled Wine. It just likes a hot Sangria. Keep you warm under such cold weather. Nice!

Polish Pork Lard is a very popular spread for bread. Better than just butter. It is heavy, but very yummy.

In terms of the Polish cuisine, they are quite meaty and heavy. Taste wise is good with a lot of flavors. Quite similar to German food. No wonder Poland is one of the Germany’s closest neighbour.

2019 02’ – Northern Lights Trip Day 2 – Kraków, POLAND

Arrived in Kraków, Poland. This is my first time visiting Poland in my life. So Excited! It was quite heavy for the first day in Kraków as we went to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. A lot of sad history needs to be taken. Couldn’t believe all these happened just 79 years ago. Nearly 1.1 millions innocent people were dead in this camp and 90% were Jews. Initially, most of them thought they were able to go to a new safe place. Sadly, they were sent to a dead place. Most of them were executed in the Gas Chamber. Their hair, shoes, clothes and all the personal belongings were collected from all these people. Stack and stack of all these items were displayed in the camp now. It is really heart breaking to see all these. War! Anger! Hate! Really sad!!! Sigh……
