Our guests from Spain (ES 1056) have written about their exchange :
" Es un lugar precioso, con muchos bosques, y parques nacionales. La naturaleza es preciosa, tan diferente de España!!.
Cracovia está muy bien comunicada y relativamente cerca de la casa y también es digna de visitar.
La casa es muy cómoda y acogedora. Toda ella de madera.
También hay una ruta, llamada "ruta de las iglesias de madera". La ruta ya es preciosa en sí misma, pero las iglesias !!! merecen un viaje a Polonia solamente para verlas!!!. Un intercambio inolvidable!!!"
" The place is very beautiful with a lot of forests and national parks.
The nature is wonderful and so different from our in Spain.
Cracow is well comunicated,relatively near from home and worth of visiting.
Home is comfortable and has good atmosphere.It is made of wood.
In that region there is a route called"The route of the wooden churches".
The route itself is beautiful for the landscapes,but the churches!!! They are worth of visiting Poland even for to see only them.
That exchange was unforgettable."
