is everything closed at Easter?

by Debs_JS

we are thinking of going to Krakow from Thurs 9th April to Sunday 12th April. I know things will be closed on Easter Sunday but does anyone know if shops, restaurants, museums etc will be closed on Good Friday and Saturday?
thanks

You should be fine on Saturday, but Good Friday being a religious holiday and one of the "silent" ones it might be hard to find live music etc. Also, if you plan sightseeing in the churches, on Good friday it will probably be hard to find a time when there is no prayer or mass going on. Not sure from where you travel to Krakow, but should you still be in Poland and travelling on Monday, beware: It´s "lany poniedzialek" and one of the less charming Easter traditions in Poland means that groups of youth splash neighbors, strangers and whoever comes along their way with water. And some of them tend to exaggerate and use big buckets! Very inconvenient when you still have some hours of train travel ahead.....

thank you for your reply. We are travelling from london on thursday afternoon 9th april and leaving on Sunday 12th April. So it is the Friday and Saturday we are concerned about. we are not worried about live music but more about shops, restaurants and sightseeing. As long as most things are open it will be OK, what do you think?

yes, I am pretty sure that shops and restaurants will be open and you won´t have to suffer any limitations in your sightseeing programm (if you want to visit Jewish heritage places in Kazimierz though, keep in mind they will be closed from late Friday afternoon and through Saturday. Does not go for the restaurants, galleries etc, of course) I hope you will enjoy your stay in Krakow, and in April you can hope for some nice spring weather already

All official places (museums, offices etc) will be closed on Good Friday as it's a Bank Holiday and most will be closed on Easter Saturday too. A number of restaurants and bars will also be closed, but by no means all.

Easter in Poland is a serious matter. In Warsaw everything is closed during all Easter, including Monday. There is nothing to do...But you might be more lucky, prepare you self before you go.

Travel Tips for Krakow

rynek,the largest medieval square in europe!

by cbeaujean

rynek or market place,always crowded.
in the centre:sukiennice or cloth hall;on the ground floor,a lot of souvenirs shops;on first floor,part of national museum.
on NE corner,our lady's church
opposite side of cloth hall,town hall tower don't give a rendezvous with your boy/girl-friend in one of the two cafes with terrace,situated on cloth hall both sides :they are identical twins!
there is fifty-fity chance your friend will wait for you in the other one!

Tourist entrance

by Ash59

The main entrance in the front of the Church is for worshippers only. Although you can use this entrance, to be able to view the altar, you must use the tourist entrance, found in the right hand side of the Church. There is a small fee to pay to get into the Church.

Christmas and Easter market

by Alicja1

Every year, on the main square in Cracow we have Christmas and Easter market. They build small, decorated shops all around the square area. You can find everything there from decorations, folklore hand made gifts to fantastic traditional food.

With two presidents in hands :-))

by matcrazy1

After giving Kathy a small statue of George W. Bush the salesman added the second statue. Guess of whom? Of Russian President Putin.

Didn't the salesman want to be politically correct? Or maybe these two presidents weren't sold well to tourists (mainly from Western Europe) searching the Cloth Hall? Hmmm... I don't know.

Train Trip

by TEXARK_COWBOY

The Train trip between Warsaw and Krakow are out standing, the way of the old life styles are still in use. The land scape is great and the ride is nice, it is a two hour ride between them. when you get to Krakow there is so much to see, the Castles are still there, the old churches and roads. If you like horses take a horse and buggy ride to see the sights it is great.
