I Need Help With Poland Tourism/Travel

Hello, I will be in Poland from June 22-25. I will fly into KRK and out of KTW. I want to see old Krakow and I also want to see Aushwitz and I MUST go to Bytom. My great grandmother is burried in Bytom. What is the best way to see the sights? I was thinking that I could visit Krakow for three nights. I can explore the first day and second day go to Aushwitz. The third day I can go to Bytom and see my great grandmother. Each day, when I return to Krakow, I can see the sights there. I will get to KTW from Krakow using the Wizz Air bus for 44 PLN. Does that sound good?
How can I get to Bytom from Krarkow???

THANKS!

By train. The trip takes between 2-3 hours and you change trains in Katowice anyway.

Flyboy,

welcome to Poland  Smile Your plan sounds good, but let me give you some tips.
If you go to Bytom it does not make much sense to go back to Krakow and then to Katowice for your flight. I would do it as the last thing in your trip and go directly from Bytom to the airport eventually staying overnight in Bytom or Katowice. Otherwise you would be simply going forth and back.

You might take the train, it's probably the the easiest.
You can find the connections here

Also, while staying in Krakow it should be very easy to get the one day trips to Auchwitz, but also I would STRONGLY recommend to go to Wieliczka salt mine. This is very unique thing you can not find any other place in teh world.
In my mind this is THE MUST in Poland.

Enjoy. Let me know if you need more help.

Jarek

Good point. Our tourism ain't exactly skyrocketing, either.

Slow down there Chi-Town. Rochester might suck, but at least we can say we are not Poland.....

I went to Warsaw in Poland around 2 Weeks ago...

Never again... This was not my sort of place and a lot different to anywhere else I had been before.. It was a nice place but over crowded (awful memories of bus ride hits...).

44PLN is a good fare take it  Smile

LOL Good thinking!

I also recommend Wieliczka Salt Mine. I've been there and it really is a must see.

When you go to Auszwitz, make sure that you see the sister camp Birkenau, which is a short bus ride away.

In Krakow, the Castle Wawel is something worth seeing as well!

Have a nice trip, take some pictures and write a trip report.

I'm sure Poland isn't a bad place, but let's face it, the country is lagging behind in the Popular Vacation Destination category. Doubtless a lot of people who feel a connection to Poland think this is a grievous error.

So, Poles, enlighten us... post some pics of Poland to convince the rest of the world to spend a vacation there. I'd enjoy seeing them.

Ok... from what i'm told, I will make some changes.

June 22:
Arrive Krakow (3PM). Explore Salt Mine.

June 23:
Visit Aushwitz. Explore Old Krakow

June 24:
Go to Katowice. Check into a hotel. Visit Bytom. Explore Katowice.

June 25:
Fly to BUD in Wizz.


Does that sound ok? Do I have enough time in Krakow to explore? I appreciate all suggestions on what to see and do.

Having been to Poland, I can attest hat it is one of the most gorgeous countries I have travelled too.. stayed very original and not the big "buy, buy, buy" show as in European or US countries.. wonderful nature, great food.. you can take great walks and see amazing historical sights..

Be happy that some of the ignorant users have their prejudices, as this keeps the country original, beautiful.. and you won't be harassed by people who want to kane a quick dollar..

You will have a great time in a great country

Due to your ancestry LOT, I highly doubt you would be able to recognize something intelligent anyway...

Besides, lighten up. I was joking. Don't throw a stone then get all sad faced when there is return fire. Did ConcordeBoy hack into your name and get all emotional?
