money exchange beuros

by olivegroves

Is it ok to change at these numerous places in the old town in Krakow or should I do it at a bank? I usually avoid these beuros as they are notorious for taking hefty commissions and giving poor rates

Re: money exchange beuros

by Jawnuta

There is no commissions per say. The price that is posted on the window it is the actual exchange rate the beuro is offering. I would check the rate at the bank and at the beuro and see who has better. All you need to do is to count your maney if they gave you as much as they should. Also....don't look confused. Look as you are adoing that every single day ;-)
BEsides that we are usually use ATM/cash machines. They accept all cards with VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, etc logo. They are also often located inside of the banks. The rate is always good and you don't have to carry too much cash with you. FOr us it is the safest way of having access to our money wherever we travel.

The only thing to watch with the kantors (money changers) is the rate they offer.As already mentioned,there is no commission and there are so many kantors around the center of Krakow to choose from.An example to look out for is this: If the (official) exchange rate is 4.25Zl to the GBP pound the best you are likely to get is 4.1Zl to the pound (this is only an example!)don't go to the kantors that offer 4.01Zl.If of course you aren't changing large amounts of money then don't worry too much because the difference is so small you won't notice.

We used the ATM-machines.
That's the cheapest.

Check fees of Your bank when You get the money from cash machine abroad. The exchange rates between banks usually are the most suitable. I do like this.

Travel Tips for Krakow

Visit the old city market...

by Rafcior

Visit the old city market square and Wawel hill with beautiful castle. I spent nine years in this city and certainly I will come beck there.
I was visiting some places in Europe and similar atmosphere I found in old Bruges in Belgium and maybe also in „Gamla Stan' in Stockholm.

There're several historical...

by Pegasus74

There're several historical museums and exhibition houses in Krakow, many are closed on Mon and Tues (one of which is The Historical Museum of Krakow at Rynek Glowny 35). I was there for just the two days, can't be more timely than that. The Silesian House along ul. Pomorska 2 (15mins walk north of the square) is the only but a good one I visited. It houses some limited but interesting exhibitions depicting history of Krakow from Sept 6 1939, when the Nazi army conquered the city, to Jan 18 1945. During WWII the building was occupied by the Nazis as Gestapo headquarters where thousands of people were interrogated and many were killed. The invader's campaign of terror, everyday life of the occupied city, various forms of resistance are presented here. The building's cellars, which were converted to prison cells, are worth visiting. Many inscriptions on the walls written by the prisoners are still intact; they were testimonies of pain, fear, despair and sufferings. An archbishop gave an account of what happened as follows: 'Our situation is very tragic indeed. Deprived of almost all human rights, subject to the cruelty of people who in their majority do not have any human feelings, we live in terrible fear under incessant threat of losing everything in the event of displacement or deportation, or of being imprisoned in the so-called concentration camp, from where only a few return alive. Thousands of our brothers are kept in these camps, without any court decree and are innocent…'.

Sit down if you're tired

by gosiaPL

I just thought it would be nice to post this close-up here (only the picture was taken in winter). In the warm season you'll find lots of young people sitting on the steps of the monument, waiting for their dates or friends.

If you'd like to sit down at Mickiewicz's feet for some poetic inspiration (hehe!) or just to have a picture taken of you, feel free to do it. People do that all the time, nobody's gonna tell you off :-)

New Year's Eve

by matcrazy1

New Year merrymaking is a must worldwide but on that night Krakow’s entire Old Town historical district turns into ONE GIANT BALLROOM.

Thousands of revelers swarm its huge Grand Square with the adjacent streets in frenzied rejoicing and pack into the area’s countless clubs, cafes and restaurants. Such is the beginning of Krakow’s long carnival season which ends with the Shrove Tuesday frolics weeks later.

There were more then 100,000 people celebrating 1999/2000 New Year Eve on the Main Market Square. No violations (police had to do their things only a few times), great atmosphere of peace and love. Dancing, singing, drinking and... poor Adam Mickiewicz monument: look at my picture.

Zakopane - relaxing mountain resort

by Raimix

Zakopane! - It was my first travel places where I saw real mountains! This place is about 120 kilometres from Krakow, bus takes a bit less than 2 hours to come here and costs something like 9-13 zloty one way.

Zakopane - Tatra mountains resort with beautiful Tatra landscape and nice wooden architecture buildings. I found here lot of touristic attractions like going up mountains, sighsteeing city, funicular to Gubalowka hill, watching souvenirs and so on.
