On our way to Olomouc

Last day in Krakow and as I mentioned before we were sad to go. Zodiakus (our hostel) was awesome. We got up pretty late and headed to the train station to buy our tickets along with Melanie the Scottish girl who decided to tag along with us. After that we hurried to the hostel because Justyna had promised us some home cooked Polish soup. The soup had mushrooms, sausages and other things I couldn't identify but it was awesome. We said our goodbyes and headed off.
Once at the train station we did the usual and boarded our train which took us to a Czech town called Bouhmin where we had to make the connection for Olomouc. The ride took roughly 5 hours and we made it to Olomouc ( you actually pronounce it ollo=moats) by nightfall. Melanie came along as I mentioned and we took the tram that would take us to the hostel. The only reason we were going to this town is because we had heard it had a great hostel and that it was a charming little town that had been an important city at one point and the capital of Moravia.
The hostel was indeed great! It had a homey feel and was pretty big. The rooms were not as cramped either. Since it was a very small town everything was pretty much done when we got there so we went to bed early.
