Mid January Restaurant question plus more questions

by ptitterington

Hello again. Our group will be returning to Krakow having not visited for about 5 or 6 years.

Ok this is a long shot, but someone may know where we went!
Last trip we found a very good restaurant, It could have been part of a hotel, it was close to the main square as we stumbled upon it by chance. The diningroom was very big and old but in very good condition, the waiters wore long white aprons and were very attentive, (Place was quite quiet) Food was fabulous, Old style menu with Wild boar, venison, rabbit etc and the food and wine were very inexpensive.

Also, do you think the g0-karts will be running as we like an activity each day, there for 3 nights from friday 14th.

Also when we went to Budapest we found some fantastic spa baths is there such a thing in Krakow.

Thanks

There are of course several restaurants that could match your description and one such is Kawaleria on ul Golebia, just off the southwest corner of the main square. Here's the website and you'll find a menu button at the bottom.

Other places I've been impressed with if you are looking for relatively formal dining and local specialities are: the downstairs restaurant at Chimera (although the ground floor salad bar is pretty good too and ideal for lunch) - http://www.chimera.com.pl/htm/ang/glowna.htm

Jarema, on Plac Majetki, which is a bit more upscale - http://www.jarema.pl/druga_e.htm

And finally Bohema, on the same street as Kawaleria, which has an atmospheric set of connecting cellar dining rooms - http://www.bohema.cracow.pl/indexang.html

Sorry go-karting and spa baths aren't my thing but maybe someone else can help with those.

Have a good trip!

I second Jarema, meet you there John!!

Re: Mid January Restaurant question plus more questions

by johngayton

Yep Ellen, Jarema needs a proper work-out but I reckon it'd be a credit card job (just for the wine bill LOL ;))

No spa baths in Krakow like Budapest, no. There are in-hotel spas, and a spa or two in the surrounding area, but nothing like Budapest.

As far as I can tell (the website is in Polish) the go-karting is open all year. There is a contact email here:

I'm sure they will be able to answer an email in English.

I am sure that the restaurant you are looking for is the Hawelka - big room with pictures and drapes and excellent cuisine. Its on the main square in Krakow. Easily found on the web.

Travel Tips for Krakow

Internet Access In Krakow's Main Square

by johngayton

The whole of the main square is a free WiFi zone and there are plenty of places around which also offer free access. However if you need to use an internet cafe this one on the main square is excellent. Personally I only needed to get online to print off a hotel voucher for my next destination and so only needed 10 minutes or so of time. The guy at the desk was very helpful, assigning me a computer and doing whatever he had to do to let me print my single page. All for the princely sum of 1.10 Zl.

There seemed to be plenty of modern machines and despite being busy there was no queue. Skype is available with headphones supplied as well as webcams.

The cafe is located at Rynek Glowny 23, above the Matras bookshop and the "Crazy Bar".

If You Find Yourself Upside Down!

by johngayton

I don't mean this literally (although it can happen ;)) but rather that for some reason I always find myself confused as to which way up Krakow is. Perhaps it's becaquse different maps orientate the city sometimes North to South, othertimes the other way up - well, that's my excuse anyway.

However no matter how lost you get in the side streets there are two points of reference - the Rynek Glowny and the Planty. All roads inwards will eventually bring you into the main square, whilst all roads outwards bring you onto the Planty, the gardens which fully encircle the old city centre. Once you find yourself in the shaded walkways of the gardens it's just a matter of wandering round (clockwise or anti, it's up to you) and eventually you'll find yourself somewhere recognisable.

It's a little bit more difficult in Kazmierz though (especially after a night out in the bars) but eventually you'll find either the main road, ul Josef Dietla, or the river!

Veit Loss' altarpiece

by Maurizioago

This is the main highlight of St. Mary Basilica. It was carved by a famous sculptor named Veit Loss between 1477 and 1489. It is made of four panels that features over 200 limewood human sculptures. It is about 13 m high and 11 m wide when the panels of the triptych are completely opened. The main scene in the center shows the moment Jesus' mother is passing away in the presence of the Apostles.

Every day, except sunday you can see the ceremony of the opening of this altar at 11.50 a. m.

Easter

by Alicja1

I am not gonna describe all Easter because its a long story. So lets stop on Holy Saturday. Inside the churches, priests sprinkled holy water on small baskets brought by believers and filled with , cakes, eggs, horseradish, sausages, ham, salt, pepper, and tiny sugar lambs. The consecration of eggs refers to egg being an ancient symbol of life. The consecration of horseradish refers to the bitterness of the passion of Jesus which, on the day of resurrection, changed into joy and sweetness. The custom of coloring eggs for Easter is still here and I do paint my pisanki on Saturday morning.There are couple waays to do your egss.:technique involved gluing colored paper or shiny fabric on them, waxing, boiling with onion shells.
In old Poland, this resurrection service was an opportunity to identify witches, for witches were believed to enjoy eating sausage during sermons, still during Flaxt. It was also believed that a priest could see which of the women attending mass was a witch, but was not allowed to reveal his information. It was also believed that during Easter procession, a female collaborator of Satan was unable to go around the church three times, and had to leave the procession after the second circuit. Its worth to mention we dont eat till our baskets are blessed.

Go go-karting!

by KennetRose

There's something exhilarating about a spin round the go-kart track in the old tramshed in Kazimierz!

Zl 15 gets you a very generous (when it's quiet at least) 8 minutes, and the adrenalin rush you get from throwing the little kart round those tight bends is terrific. A lap or two will get you used to the track and then - whoosh!

I hoped to get a picture but Marisha, who has had a lot more practice than me, was out of her kart and into mufti before my kart had stopped rolling. So I pinched one of hers!

It seems such a typically Polish thing to do. I don't know why, except that I know that it's the Polish community in Reading that keeps the speedway team going. Any road, they didn't bat an eyelid at two ladies in, erm, their prime having a go! Helmets are provided, all you need is your enthusiasm.
