Kevend 1 | 8 3 Sep 2011 #1I just came home from Krakow, I spent 5 days there with some friends for a cultural holiday, Visitng the sites of Auchwitz/Birkenau, the Jewish quarter and ghetto, and the salt mines. Generally the city is a very beautiful place, very tidy and we had a good time, Until the last night we were there, myself and a friend of mine left a club and walked past two polish men who were rather large, hassling three polish girls, two of these girls were talking to myself and my friend telling us these two men were trying to take their sister away and she was willing to go, but they didnt want to leave her. So after about 10 minutes they got a bit violent and started to push me, my friend wanted to leave and was worried but I insisted we stayed to see if these girls were okay.Eventually the two men left with the girl, and the 2 remaining girls were with us wanted to get a drink. We went with them towards some club just generally talking until we met their friends, 6 Polish guys with shaved heads which as first didnt alarm anything, until they spoke. The first words they said being 'We dont like black people'. At this point we realised this was not a good idea, I spoke to the girl and one of them approached me and told me 'You leave now... **** off', my friend grabbed my arm and asked to leave, when a 2nd man approached and pushed me away from the girl, The girl began talking in polish, pushing one of the men away from me, and I then began to walk away.However I wont hold this 1 night against Krakow, I generally had a nice time, and we met some Polish people who were rather friendly who bought us shots and expressed how they liked speaking to English people as it helped them become better at using it, And we met some Polish men who liked to get drunk and display how they were racist and didnt like us. If I recommend Krakow, I would do so but make a point of saying to avoid going out at night and if you do, to stay very close to your place youre staying at.
