Weekend in Krakow - Late Night Arrival

We continued our aggressive Fall travel schedule with a 4-day weekend in Krakow.  Our flight arrived under cover of darkness and we waited in the moonlight for the train from the airport to the city.
The train station connects to a large mall with a bright pink 2-story cake on display.
We exited Krakow's train station to a square lit by small lighted panes in the sidewalk.
We passed beautiful ornate buildings bathed in light as we walked to our hotel in the Jewish quarter.
It was almost 10 pm by the time we got checked in and settled at Hotel Columbus.  We were pleased when we got a special voucher for a welcome drink at Szara, a restaurant just a short walk from the hotel.
We really enjoyed the food from the fresh bread...
...to goat cheese and courgette (zucchini) starter.
I got my first taste of creamy mushroom soup...
...while my husband opted for pumpkin soup topped with seeds and pinenuts.
For our main course, we were presented with two crocks.
One side held wild boar stew and the other steaming dumplings.
We finished our meal and took a short walk around Kazimierz, Krakow's old Jewish quarter.  While the Jewish population largely disappeared in World War II due to the Holocaust, signs of the history here still remain.
We finished the night at Plac Nowy where a variety of vendors sell the Polish version of French Bread pizza.  We were stuffed from dinner and weren't able to squeeze in a little late night treat.  Next time!
