A Bar Mleczny in Poland translates to English as a ‘Milk Bar.’ These restaurants are holdovers from communist times. The government subsidized these restaurants so the ‘people’ could still ‘afford’ to eat out cheaply. I believe the term ‘milk’ refers to the food offering: primarily vegetarian and dairy (who could afford meat?)
A large head lying on its side greets visitors to Krakow’s Main Square. What’s in a head? Well, this one contains nothing but air. Arriving in Krakow’s huge Main Square you see the majestic St. Mary’s Church from the 14th century towering over the square.
On a quirky note . . . when we stayed in Warsaw, our bed and breakfast was a short walk from Aleja Jerozolimskie, or Jerusalem Avenue. In the middle of a traffic roundabout on a busy street, a 50-foot tall, artificial palm tree surprises the uninformed visitor. There is only the tree, no signs or explanations unless you have a guidebook for background information.
