Seat reservations on trains

by BlackenedSkies

Hi. Just wondered if anyone could give me info on seat reservations on Polish trains. One of the trains I will be travelling on says seat reservations are mandatory so I should automatically be given a seat reservation ticket. Is this true? How do I get a seat reservation for the other trains (I will be travelling on POS trains)? I have written the details down for the trains as I know that most of the people working in the station don't speak English.
When travelling in Slovakia I bought a train ticket for a train in which seat reservations were apparently mandatory. The ticket did not contain a seat reservation so I had no seat for the first hour of the journey as the train was full. I don't want this happening again :(

When you buy a ticket for a train with mandatory reservation in Poland (IC, EC, Ex, TLK) you are automatically given a seat reservation ticket.
Only in case you buy your ticket late, just before the train leaves and there is no seats available, you may get a ticket without seat reservation.
In POS (pospieszny = fast train, which doesn't mean it's really fast ;) ) trains there is no possibility to make a seat reservation. Try to be the first on the train ;)

Thanks for the info. For one of the routes (Tarnow-Katowice) there are only POS or OSO trains. I can't be first on the train as there are about 5/6 stops before Tarnow. As I can't make a seat reservation would it be best to travel 1st class? Apparently it's not as crowded. Also, if there are no seats in 1st class, can I sit in 2nd class with a 1st class ticket?

Yes you can use your 1st class ticket in 2nd one. Trains might be busy so if there are only POS or OSO trains I'd recommend to by a first class ticket.

Hi, if u are going to travel by train POS class u must know, that this kind of train is cheap but...with no seat :( I'm sorry. If u want seat u must take IC or EXpress train. There u are sure that u will have a seat :).
If u want to make a reservation by net it is a page www.pkp.pl. This is eanglish version: https://bilet.intercity.pl/irez/.
So take care and good luck

p.s. ...it is true that people who warks in train in Poland doesn't know english...ech...But in "information" on train station they should know english. Try :)

Travel Tips for Krakow

Krakow was the most pleasant...

by mettemaritc

Krakow was the most pleasant surprise . Here you will find just old houses, the most beautiful town square, friendly people and so much more. I was a bit anxious going to Poland as I had heard many people describe it a bit of a dodgy place. I found quite the opposite.
We ended up in Poland just by a very impulsive decision.I just had to go somewhere for a few days.
You just have to sit at one of the restaurants in the old town at the square and enjoy life that goes by.
We were there on palm sunday 2001 and enjoyed what was going on.Full of life. Wonderful experience A little girl standing in the street, playing her instrument and humming away.

by Pegasus74

The third floor of the Town Hall Tower, also within the square, is a lookout point from which you can admire a panorama of the city and enjoy a photographic exhibition illustrating the history of the Rynek. Admission to the tower is 2.50 zl. Its walls are adorned with stone facing composed of pointed arches and vertical fluting, with stained glass windows half opened just wide enough to expose the majestic St Mary's Church.

Corpus Christi Procession

by Kathrin_E

Corpus Christi is a high Roman Catholic holiday in honour of the Eucharist on the second Thursday after Pentecost. In Krakow, like in many other places all over the world, it is celebrated with a procession through the centre of the city. The Archbishop of Krakow carries the monstrance with the consecrated host to bless the city and its people. He is accompanied by many clerics, church groups, religious authorities and associations, ancient equestrian orders, personalities of public life, the monks and nuns from the countless monasteries in the city.

The celebrations start with mass in the Cathedral of Wawel hill at 9 a.m. Around 10 a.m. the procession is formed outside the cathedral and starts walking. Its route is down the Southern ramp (Droga do Zamku), then along ul. Grodzka to Rynek Glówny, around the sqare, and it ends in front of St Mary's Church. Along the routhe there are four stations where the procession stops for hymns, prayers and a sermon. All in all it takes about 3 hours. Best place to watch it is somewhere along ul. Grodzka.

Tourists: Of course you can take photos during the procession. However, be polite and respectful, and don't point your camera straight into someone's face. A good zoom is a useful tool. This is a religious event. No one will pose for your camera. The participants are not random people who dress up in costumes for some fun parade. They are serious about what they do, and they really are what they seem to be according to their outfit. Respect their faith even if you don't share it.

They used to smile

by matcrazy1

They always (OK, amost always) smile to their consumers in Krakow nowadays. We met smiling saleswomen in Cloth Hall (ask Kodi01) and smiling waiter in Wierzynek restaurant (ask Pawtuxet) and... etc., etc.

15 years ago (before communism collapse) it went quite opposite way. In usually almost empty public (nationalized) stores employees - salesmen asked you rudely: what do you want? or "Czego" = What? that you even was sorry to ask about anything. Although they usually treated foreign tourist better - just my observation.

Warning: a few (minority) of salesmen still stayed at previous times - ignore them, they are like ancient dinosaurs and they will die out soon hehe.
