Chleb prądnicki (translated as “Bread from Prądnik, a district of Kraków town, that took its name from the small river) is a very interesting example of food tradition in southern Poland. This bread was first noted as far as in 1421(!) and during the communist times, the production was almost completely terminated. A group of bread enthusiasts restarted the daily production of this bread in 1989 when the communism collapsed in Poland due to bankruptcy of the country and since then, this bread is a pure success – recently it was listed as a protected regional heritage food example by EU . You can read more about this bread here, for now in Polish only – I will try to translate this text later.
In regards to the size – 4,5 kg and it is simply massive. Big japanese Deba knife is used for comparison.
If you ever come across Kraków, southern Poland – don’t miss the old jewish district, Kazimierz. In the very middle of it, there is Plac Nowy – and there, in the middle of it – you will find the legendary street food diner, “Endzior”. They sell only one thing – baked sandwiches. Try, if you dare.

For years and years, it was a dream car for most of the people – expensive, luxurious and in fact, available only on free, black market. Western cars, even the standard cars like VW or original Fiat, were considered as UFO’s and were reserved only for the elite.
