I have just returned from a visit to Kraków (though i am back there again next weekend) and whilst i was there; there is a park area near to Galeria Krakówska and in clear light of day this polish bird (female) aged about i would say mid to late 40s poss. early 50s was in the park cream coloured trousers round her ankles taking a sh1t and even used tissues to help it along ... i wouldnt mind but you visiable saw her push the turd out and land on the floor ...... they were others nearby who could see this as well ...

does it get that bad that they cant pay 1zloty to go to the public toilets nearby but use a public park in full view of the general public of Kraków ....

I was with my daughter at the time and was really actually shocked ive never seen anything like that in my life by someone of the older generation of any nationality ... some diginity doesnt go a miss?

This is not intended to be offensive as many of you know i dont say a bad word about polish people .... just posting what i observed ... on one particular day

they were others nearby who could see this as well

What was their reaction like? that might be a stupid question as I do not expect them to throw there arms up in the air and scream but they might have looked away?

maybe she wasnt

Yeah, i thought it would have been difficult to tell and I doubted if you engaged her in conversation.

definitely not but couldve been

So I will take that as a definite maybe then.

Until i've got proof that Paula Radcliffe was in England I'm not ruling out a Marathon or Snickers. It's the nuts apparently. :)

ow man that is crazy, are you telling the truth or is this a wind up?? lol

well i guess it creates a few more jobs :) i mean a pooper scooper is required i'm sure if people are doing this on the regular :):).

I was with my daughter at the time and was really actually shocked ive never seen anything like that in my life by someone of the older generation of any nationality ... some diginity doesnt go a miss?

not a great thing for a child to see, i totally agree.

i don't think anybody will take it as such, if they do it means they have misunderstood your post.

The park is probably Planty which encompass the Old Town from all sides. Yes, shitting in public could have happened there as it is a place known to be frequented by drug addicts, the homeless, bums, drunks, etc. The police and city guards are helpless.

Look at pics which I have taken in Planty:

This one looked like a British stag party tourist to me...

but these guys were definitely Polish

But there are normal guys too

yeah, i thought she meant the other side.

Just out of curiosity why do you take photos of drunks on benches?

Planty is great, most of the time, didn't it used to be a mote?.

wow, well its something i've never seen before, Although i'm sure plenty of homeless take a dump in the park. There is a big homeless population in Exeter where i live, they do all sorts of weird and wonderful things. Lately they have even been attacking the general public.

I would assume that the person you saw was homeless, i'm not going with the eastern european gypsie idea, lol, thats there version of racism :) but it would surprise me very much if it was MRS Joe Bloggs who lives accross the road from you :)

Probably not. I forgot to add that there are also old prostitutes willing to make your day for a can of beer. Sad but true. One of my friends was approached by a woman and he almost gave up after the explicit proposition of having sex with her.

I take photos of everything and everybody not only in Krakow but also throughout Poland.

Hmmm.... if you mean moat, yes, that`s right.
