Working for Culture.pl has been a wonderful experience. I am able to take a day off here and there to explore cities in Poland other than Warsaw. Yesterday night I got back from Krakow, Poland. It is a beautiful city. I was able to see old-town, art museum, Wawel Cathedral, Jewish quarter and castle. I also went on a few walking tours. I toured the Jewish quarter and went to several synagogues. This was a great experience for me. I have never been to a synagogue and the fact that there were so many synagogues that were so well preserved was amazing. I was also able to tour a Jewish cemetery. This was very moving. Another part of this excursion that was so impactful for me was going to the National Art Museum of Art. There the painting titles: Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo Da Vinci. It was amazing to be in the same room as such a famous and iconic painting. The exhibit also had a lot of background on the painting as well as the subject of the painting. However, my favorite thing about Krakow is old-town. The beautiful city center was incredible. It was not destroyed in World War II.
