Movie Set Travel: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Take a break from reality this weekend and hit up the theater to see "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," the next installment in the series of the the Pevensie sibs.
This time the charming English foursome find that hundreds of years have passed since their last trip to Neverland, er, Narnia, and a new villan, King Miraz, has taken over the throne. Of course they enlist help from all the Narnia creatures and then have to figure out how to get home. This one's full of mythology, some new local characters and even a night raid on a castle.
In that vein we encourage you to explore Narnia this week. We kid, we kid. Instead, try checking out some of the below hotspots in Poland, where parts of the film were actually shot:
Where to Stay: Hotel Grodek, Krakow Part of the Donimirski family of boutique hotels, the Grodek features distinct rooms (you can view them all online and decide before booking) and is tucked away in the Old Town area of the city.
Where to Eat: Banja Luka, Warsaw Head to one of the most authentic Balkan restaurants in Warsaw and sample recipes by Serb and Croat chefs, including gurmanska pljeskawica (ground beef and pork patties). Enjoy the nightly live music and staff's festive folk wear.
What to See: Zamek Krolewski, Krakow This castle dates back to the 16th century and is rumored to be filled with mystery and folklore, as well as a special (ghostly!) energy by the locals. Visitors can view the crown jewels on the ground floor, as well as ancient armory. Before heading here, be sure to check the hours online as they vary seasonally.
