Transport from Airport to center of town

by Bavavia

Hello,
i saw one posting on tranasportation from airport to city center.. but too many responses. Is there an airport bus or some other public transportation to get from airport to city center in Krakow?
thx

Bus 208 goes from the airport to Krakow Glowny central train station. Bus 292 also passes the train station. Tickets can be bought from the driver. Go out of the airport, turn right. The bus stop is 200m down the road.

And the train which runs every 20 mins or so. Slightly more expensive. A 200 metre walk to your right with a freebie shuttle. Personally I prefer the train.

Enjoy Krakow!

Travel Tips for Krakow

More bars and cafés

by AndreSTGT

As i already said, Krakow's cafe and bar scene is world-class and apart from the places i've mentioned so far there are many other places worth a visit. So here are some more suggestions.

Cafe Dym (ul sw. Tomasza 17) :
a dark, spartan café-bar with very nice staff

Carmel Coffee (ul.sw, Krzyza 12) :
nothing American about it, rather a very European, old-fashioned place with dark-green sofas and velvet curtains. Light bites and freshly squeezed orange juice.

Esweria (ul. Josefa 9) :
Cheap, atmospheric café in Kazimierz, dark, wooden interior, alternative flair

Piêkny Pies (ul. œw. Jana 18) :
trendy chill-out lounge in orange and green, relaxed electronic music

The world's oldest shopping mall - Cloth Hall

by matcrazy1

.
The world's oldest shopping mall has been in business in the middle of Krakow's Main Market Square FOR 700 YEARS. Circa 1300 a roof was put over two rows of stalls to form the first Cloth Hall where the textile trade used to go on.
It was extended into an imposing Gothic structure 108 meter long and eight meter wide in the second half of the 14th century. After the 1555 fire the Cloth Hall was rebuilt as a splendid Renaissance edifice with an ornate roof adorned with grotesque masks. During the 1875-1879 refurbishment the outside arcades and central transepts were added.

Nowadays stalls on the ground floor and shops in the arcades mostly sell assorted souvenirs. There is the loooongest souvenir shop I have ever seen. Is it the LOOOONGEST SOUVENIR SHOP in the world? Hmm... maybe, I don't know. Do you know any longer? More: in my shopping tips.

Upstairs Krakow National Museum exhibits its unparalleled collection of the 19-century Polish art, including Jan Matejko's famous movie-like giant paintings.

One of two Cloth Hall's spacious cafes, the Noworolski’s on the east side, has been opened since 1910 when it got its present elegant Art Nouveau decor.
Luckily no McDonald's there :-)). Instead: tables on the square - good place to watch people :-).

Be careful when exiting taxis....

by mariusz106

Be careful when exiting taxis. My uncle told me that people leave things behind all the time, like cameras and video cameras or purses etc. then he has to drive all over town to find them. Sometimes he does and sometimes not.
Also, watch for a scheme that a lot of taxi drivers use due to high competition and slow business. They LOVE to overcharge you (especially if you're a foreigner) for the ride by putting the meter in night return mode(the most expensive mode) or to take you all over town when your destination is a few streets over.
That's why I advise you to call up my uncle and mention my name so you won't get screwed.
And please remember to take your stuff from the taxi.

Sad water well

by matcrazy1

There is a sad old water well (or rather pump) in the northwestern part of the Main Market Square. It's a saint place for many locals especially at medium (is that me?) and old age (I suppose). They used to light candles and give flowers under this water wall. Why?

Not so easy to explain (with my English especially).
OK, I will try to describe you what happened in this place.
70 years old man Walenty Badylak fixed himeself to this water well with chains, poured himself with petrol (gas) and fired himself on 21st March 1980. Very many people looked at this and they were not able to do anything.
I must say that all locals were talking about it that time. The official communist regime propaganda said... nothing first (like always), then they said in small letters short info that Badylak was... cooky (mad). But it was not true.

Why did he do this?
He protested against keeping in secret by official communist propaganda the truth about Soviet genocide in Katyn.
Have you ever heard about Katyn in Russia/Soviet Union before?
From the order of Stalin there were 25,700 of Poles (mainly highly educated Poles and army officers) shot by soviet National Committee of Interior Affairs, NKVD. 4200 were killed and buried in Katyn's forest in 1940.
It was strictly forbidden to say the truth about Katyn till communism collapse in 1990 - the official propaganda said that the crime was commited by... Nazis (Germans) in 1942. Although all people including families of murdered people knew that it's a big lie.

Try Polish wodkas!

by akselek

The best place in Krakow to try local wodkas is "Wodka" (ul. Mikolajska 5 - it's 100m behind the Mariacki Church). It's a cosy place & it serves the wodkas in the best way: Not only does the drink come from the freezer but so do the glasses. Pleasure for eyes and mouth :-)

I worked there myself during the summer and could see that tourists usually knew only one kind of wodka before (Zubrowka) but plenty of them when they left ...

If you want to appear in the know when you enter the world of Polish wodkas, here's a little guide:

Pure wodkas (without added flavours):
- Wyborowa (the most popular one, it's good but not expensive)
- Debowa (bit more sophisticated, my personal favourite of the pure ones)
- Luksusowa (sounds posh but it's not better than Wyborowa)
- Chopin and Belvedere (the most expensive ones, come in fancy bottles but to me are not worth the price difference - do as the locals do and choose one of the aboves!)

Flavoured wodkas:
- Zubrowka (the most famous Polish wodka, has a blade of grass inside, its taste is very distingiushable, mostly drunk with apple juice - called Tatonka or Szarlotka - but it's also great with black currant juice!)
- Wisniowka (cherry wodka, also a Polish favourite, lots of Poles make them theirselves at home, it's a treat for the tongue with grapefruit juice!)
- Zurawinowka (cranberry wodka, one of my favourites to drink poor cos it's so mild)
- Imbirowa (ginger (!) wodka, bit exotic but worth a try)
- Orzechowka (nut wodka, too sweet for my taste)
- Zoladkowa (herb bitter, if you want to surprise the barkeeper, take it with milk - quite a mixture!)
- Krupnik (honey wodka, in winter it's fantastic to have it with lemon juice and hot water, then called Krupnik z wrzatkiem)
- Piolunowka (was explained to me as "Polish absinth")
- Sliwowica (plum wodka)
- Balsam Pomorski (very mild one, great if you're not into high percentage alcoholic drinks)
- ...
There are lots more but these are some basic ones. Try them all - but with care!
