Krakow Floods – Latest (photo blog)

In Krakow, a major bridge was closed as the Vistula River nearly reached it.

At Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former Nazi death camp that draws about a million visitors a year, authorities carried historical documents and some artifacts, including brushes and bowls that belonged to victims, to the upper floors of old barracks that are used to house exhibits, said spokesman Jaroslaw Mensfelt.

Mensfelt said the memorial site was closed to visitors, the first time that has happened due to the threat of floods. Waters were rising in two nearby rivers, the Vistula and the Sola.

  1. Krakow looks very depressed after the floods and I am worried that it will not be a happy place in which to spend our summer holiday in June. We think that we should delay our visit, we are from the UK, to later on in the year, what advise would you give us.

    • Krakow has not been effected by the floods, there is a bit of a clean up of mud in progress around the banks of the Wisla, but that is all. I’d love to know where the city looks depressed?

      You will not even be aware there was ever a risk of flooding in a few days.

  3. Hi,

    But I wonder if there would be any problem with taking trains. I’m planning to visit Wroclaw and Kraków on July and I’m worried about not being able of using trains due to floods.
