We have walked the Royal Way down to the Old Town several times, visiting the many churches, palaces, museums, gardens, restaurants ...... and shops.
The Royal Castle was virtually destroyed with only one wall and foundations remaining. Many of the pictures and sculptures were salvaged, some just before the invasion. We visited 32 rooms of the castle and also a separate wing called the 'Tin Roof Palace'. It was no backyard shed and was even more spectacular than the castle in many ways.
Another highlight was attending an organ recital played on a beautiful Baroque pipe organ. This is Chopin's birthplace so we also visited the Chopin Museum. This had ultra modern technology. Unfortunately most of it wasn't working!
Today we are catching a train to Lublin for a couple of days.
