Someone told me that euros are accepted in poland is this true or would i be better off getting Zloty

Re: Currency

by marielexoteria

If the euros are accepted, you might get a bad rate. Get the zlotys.

Re: Currency

by Kathrin_E

The zloty and nothing else is Poland's currency. Some tourist places might accept Euro but the rate will definitely not be in your favour.

Ok, thats grand, thanks for letting me know ;)
Zloty it is

Re: Currency

by leics

It is always best to use the legal currency of any country.

If euros etc are accepted, you can be absolutely certain you are getting a worse rate because the recipient has to cover his/her exchange charges.

So take zloty and use zloty, even if the restaurant/whatever is happy to accept euro.

And enjoy's a lovely city! :-)

It is always best to use the currency of the country you are in. It is wise to carry some universal currency on arrival but get to an ATM as soon as. Logos compatible with most cards are VISA, PLUS, CIRRUS and MAESTRO.

Travel Tips for Krakow

Krakow Card

by monkeytrousers

I would recommend the Krakow Card especially if you plan on visiting a lot of the museums and art galleries. It costs 50 zloty for a 2 day card and 65 zloty for a 3 day card. You get access to pretty much every church, museum and gallery in the city except for the Wawel Hill complex and you get free transport for the duration of the card.

Mounds in Krakow

by Skeptic-jr

Krakow is the only city in Europe, in which tradition of heaping up mounds has remained up to 20th century.

There are four mounds in the city. The most famous is the Kosciuszko Mound which dates back to the beginning of 19th century. This one has a great panorama of almost the whole city. The highest and the newest is the Pilsudski Mound, built just before the World War II. Two other mounds, the Krakus (Krak) Mound and the Wanda Mound, are smaller and less popular, but they have prehistorical origins. Both of them were built in 7th century as tombs of rulers, fortifications or places of a pagan cult.

More info about all of Krakow Mounds you can find in particular tips on my page. About Kosciuszko Mound I write in ?Must See" tips, the others are covered within ?Of the Beaten Path".

We do not forget him!!

by csordila

Archbishop Karol Wojtyla was the youngest apostolic administrator of Kraków in 1958. When he was elected in 1978 he was by papal standards a comparatively young man, only 58, making him the youngest Pope in 132 years.
The Pontiff is possibly the most athletic Pope in history. In his youth, he played soccer as a goal-keeper,enjoyed skiing, hiking, mountain climbing and kayaking.
Before his ordination as a priest, he was a member of an experimental theater group and a published poet. He may be the only Pope whose life was portrayed in a comic book.
TIME's Man of the Year 1994
His Holiness was the great example of a good Catholic. He will be in the centre of our heart trough out our life.

Many Polish people still...

by squibber

Many Polish people still appear less than friendly towards German visitors - or people they think are German! If you want to avoid any possible hostility learn to introduce yourself and your nationality in Polish.

Soccer (football) in Krakow

by matcrazy1

The most popular sport discipline in Krakow is soccer (European football). You can see many mainly young (but not only) people playing football in numerous football fields across the city - mainly by schools.
