#1: Overview of the point, looking south towards it

(visited by Aaron B)

20-Jun-2010 -- In the summer of 2010, I was backpacking through Eastern Europe. While visiting Krakow, I decided take an afternoon to navigate the public transit system to get to the confluence point that lies in the southern part of the city, near the A4.

A bus got me as far as Cechowa road, then I walked south across the highway on Jana Hallera to the very muddy Blacharska ulica. This road meanders east just south of the highway. It is quite easy to reach the vicinity of confluence point from this road, but it is advisable not to go when it's been rainy like it was on my visit. The point is about 100 m from the road and I was about to get within 20 m, excluding positioning error.

Leaving the area, I continued east until a graffiti-ed walkway underneath the highway appeared. This path leads to Kosocicka ulica, then Wielicka where I caught a bus back to town.

No significant human interaction happened on this journey, except for one man who muttered something in Polish to me because I was taking a picture in the sidewalk in Kazimierz and he had to step in the street to go around!
