Krakow was such an amazing historical city and I felt so alive having gone there by myself and seeing all of these incredible sights and making new friends. It was the first time I opened up on my travels and I was kicking myself that I hadn't done it earlier.I discovered I shouldn't be so shy and to open up more to strangers, because other people can really make your trip so much more special. Now it's what I love the most about travelling and thinking back to that particular day always gets me so pumped and energised for new adventures ahead.

Warsaw is a city of rebirth. It's a city born out of the ashes of a terrible war and has established itself as a modern wonder. It's different from a usual European city, as it is not around a city square but instead, spread in a vertical manner, full of Gothic, communist and modern architecture. It's a city that survived World War II and emerged as a fascinating mix of cultures and landmarks.Cheapest Month To Fly: October 2017 from New DelhiMust See: The Old Town, Park Łazienkowski, The Royal Route (from Old Town to Wilanów Palace), Warsaw Ghetto, Warsaw Uprising Museum.Must Eat: Polish Highlander cheese, Pierogi, Paczki Pastries, cabbage rolls and potato dumplings.Must Do: Hang out at Plac Zbawiciela (Savior Square), Relax at the Zegrze Lake, Visit the Adam Mickiewicz Museum Of Literature, Sit by Sigismund’s Column, Go to the Museum Of Caricature And Cartoon Art and Visit the Grand Theatre.Approximate Cost for a day: Attractions – Rs. 550; Food – Rs. 1050; Inter-city travel via public transport – Rs. 350; Accommodation – Average cost for 1 night – Rs. 2500 on double occupancy.

Two hours (100 kms) south of Krakow, Zakopane is a popular resort town with the Poles, both in summer and winter. Set in the foothills of the Tatra Mountains, the town is dotted with oldworld wooden chalets topped by high, sloping slate grey roofs. Wander down Krupówki Street and the Gubałówka Market to shop for local souvenirs like wooden handicrafts and high quality leather products.Taste the typical Zakopane cheese, oscypek, a salty, smoked sheep’s milk cheese often served grilled with a dab of cranberry marmalade. Take the cable car up Kasprowy Wierch for a view of the mountains that separate Poland from Slovakia. Advanced skiers can take to two skiing and snowboarding pistes here or try the horse-drawn sleigh ride in the Tatra National Park to admire the winter landscape while ensconced under warm sheepskin.The best place to sample the local highlander cuisine is the rustic restaurant Bakowo Zohylina Wyźnio which hosts lively folk music and dance performances.
