As in most places where tourists go, Poland offers lots of souvenirs: woodcarvings and other folk art; jewelry, especially made from Baltic Amber; dolls of various kinds, and special ceramics with multi-floral designs and geometric designs. On my trip last week, I bought little, but found the shop windows very enjoyable.
|Nesting wood dolls are made in Poland as well as in Russia|
|The folk-art market in Krakow, shown here in the evening, offers dozens of stalls with a wide selection of souvenirs.|
|Inside the Krakow market|
|A flower market, with both fresh and dry flowers, was in the square outside the Krakow market |
when we walked by on Saturday morning just after arriving by train.
|Wood carvings also frequently decorate shops and restaurants in the Old City.|
I like these modern figures.
