view from our Krakow hotel at night

view from hotel at night, originally uploaded by karlakp.

We stayed in an area called Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter. It is a very charming area, as old or older than old city Krakow. It's in the midst of a regeneration. Our hotel was the Hotel Rubinstein, named after makeup magnate Helen Rubinstein who grew up on the street. From our room we could see over to Wawel Castle.
There was an old water well with a hand pump in the middle of the street (more like a square, really) and people still used it for filling buckets and stuff!
