I Need Help With Poland Tourism/Travel

Thu Apr 28, 2005 5:13 am

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
http://rozklad.pkpik.pl/bin/query.ex...ent=b6.0456367.1114633610&OK#focus

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.

See here

Enjoy. Let me know if you need more help.

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

Flyboy,

You're missing Wawel on your itinerary. It honestly is an amazing castle, spending a day exploring it would definitely be a day well spent.

I noticed you plan to visit Wieliczka at 3pm. I would advise going earlier. Poland is different than it is here with tourism. Most places open in the morning and close in the afternoon rather than running from afternoon to evening.

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

Much more polluted, way more boring. Hell in Poland, we have laxed laws, beautiful mountains, lakes, forest, sea, we can drink when we are 18 legally (and for that matter of fact no one knows how to ID anyways) and pretty much do anything we want to. Hell, a place like Rochester doesnt even have Mars Bars..

"

My grades in school, my test scores and my ability to get a full ride to almost every college in this nation , learning 2 other languages, and having a pretty good looking girl beg to differ. Im wondering why im even arguing with you? In the end you are right, its hard to recognize something intelligent from Rochester that even speculates of the thought that baseball is a sport

I have to say one positive comment about Crapchester, its not BUFFALO.


I had to edit for that last comment because I thought of the time I had to drive through that godawful place called Buffalo.

Keep making an ass out of yourself. KROC too. Sometimes I think we were better off with Hepkat. I'm not polish, so I am not crying over it. My great grandmother lived there, she was not from there.


Helpfull people:

I'm ariving into KRK on the easyjet flight. I should be at the hotel (can you reccomend a cheap one or a hostel, but no dorm - private room only) by 3pm and ready to explore. I may have a hectic itinerary, but I'll get it done.

You are arguing with me because you are insecure and after attacking Crapchester, you are now whining because I am cracking on you. Man up son.

Oh and baseball is a real sport. You must be a Soccer Fan (it would explain that complex you have working) and that will end the argument. I won't pile on you there because next thing you know, you will be starting your own suicide thread. I wouldn't want your death on my hands.

Does sarcasm have to hit you in the face for you to recognize it? I was hardly serious about the Mars Bar. Ive been to W. NY, and stop convincing YOURSELF that its any good.

Speaking of sarcasm...do i have to gift wrap it for you? Thats what teh inferiority complex was. As far as Western NY and its "goodness". Please.

RE: I Need Help With Poland Tourism/Travel

Sat Apr 30, 2005 7:46 am

I've got a trip planned. I'm flying into Vienna, then going to Prague then onward to Kraków. How many days do you recommend that that I spend in Kraków keeping in mind that I'm also going to Vienna and Prague, and only have 8 days to do it?

Also, now that CZ and PL are part of the EU will I get stamps entering by train to CZ and PL? I'll be taking the train from Vienna to Prague and then most likely taking the train from Prague to Kraków. I'd love to get both a CZ and PL stamp.

Simple answer is 2 days...or get there in the afternoon and leave next night.

Sadly by 2002 we went down to the #14 spot hehe, but should be up there in 2004 again. The drop in US tourism due to 9/11 is pretty damn big..can you say visa waiver/biometrics?

Quoting Mrniji (Reply 34):
Hmmm, sometimes M, sometimes H.. - seriously, I have been a couple of times there, and I love that country, as it has stayed authentic, as opposed to the countries you show in your flag and your usernames, respectively. Before you make assertions like these think whether you hit the point or rather disrupt the discussion, showing your intolerance

I have been there a couple of times myself and it is far from a "great country" as you put it. I did hit the point on the head, its a shithole. This doesn't show intolerance, it shows the truth.

So the truth is what you say? And calling a country a shithole is not intolerant??

I leave this uncommented, as other users might have the same thoughts as I do.. how pathetic

You know its funny Flyboy, I know we are better off when you actually don't post on the forum. And just cause you're not Polish doesn't mean you're not a bag of tears busting at the seems. Get back in the closet...you know, with your sexuality.

Well, welll, well. If it isn't big-bad KROC here to splash his PMS juice all over us. What's the matter, another one of your wives left you? I'm sick and tired of your racist, gay-bashing, prejudiced ways. First of all, there is nothing wrong with being gay. But since I'm not gay, I can't really take offence to your BS comment.

The reason I stopped posting here is people like you who go out of their way to destroy a thread. Get a life, you've become a troll and nobody takes you seriously anymore. Go shaft yourself, KROC.

Me too - and I am glad that I am not the only one who thinks that.. he seems to have some unwritten alliance with these racist kids here on anet and is the most selective mod I have encountered, completely one-sided but with double standards. It is sad

At the beginning I thought there was some irony behind and thought he has a sweet sense of humor, but after being harassed by him with IMs yesterday, I am not that sure anymore. I am sure he is really nice in reality and a good, decent, tolerant and funny person, but yesterday (and this) was enough. I hope that the mod team takes up these issues. KROC, please stop this: you are not giving a good picture of yourself recently

Advice Flyboy36y: IGNORE KROC! I am doing the same now, as I cannot take all this serious anymore
