Directions from airport

by Mandamoo831

Hi, I understand that there are 2 buses that both go into the centre from the airport, dropping off at the station. And is it safe? Have read a couple of theft report. Could you please give me exact directions of how to get to the main square from there, our hotel is the amadeus which apparently is very near the square. Many thanks

It's easier and faster to get the train. Trains run every 30 minutes with a journey time of 18 minutes and a fare (last time I was there) of 7 zloty - http://www.krakowairport.pl/en/3/176/35/en. From the railway station the main square is a short (5 minutes) walk and is well signposted.

Yes, take the train.

But I have taken the bus too. There is no issue with safety in Krakow any more than anywhere else. Just use normal city common sense.

The hotel website gives you directions from the Krakow Glowny station (buses stop nearby):

It will take you around 10 minutes.

I stayed at the Mercure Grand once. I spent a night there over Columbus Day. The hotel is not what I'd call 'incredible.

I stayed at the Rialto once. It's been a long time since I had been on trip with my children, and I took for granted this hotel would work for us. The this hotel has my recommendation and I expect to return and taking part in my experience with my relatives friends.

We visited the Hotel Marriott last spring. My friends and I visited there for eight nights. On the whole, we would never vacation at this resort once more!

Krakow is not a resort and, as far as I can tell, there is no Marriott hotel or resort there.

Travel Tips for Krakow

Cracking City, this Cracow :)

by Durfun

This was my first short trip to an 'exotic' country where I'd barely done any background homework.

The city was chosen by a buddy for my brother's stag, so I just went along. Did some quick reading on the way..

Jotted down the star architectural attractions, and being such a compact Old Town, everything was within walking distance of each other. Best thing about Krakow. Beautiful, quirky, exotic.

Friendly & helpful locals.

Getting merry at Pauza (see Nightlife tip), after a self-imposed drinking moratorium that lasted 13 years! A fun feeling... ;)

St. Adalbert Church VT Euromeet Photoshoot

by Martin_S.

Matt, our organizer of the VT Euromeet 2010 in Krakow, decided upon doing one of our photo shoots here alongside the Church of Saint Adalbert...now I imagine when this church was consecrated that they had NO IDEA we would put it to such use in the future, but we did and it is now history. You can see the church itself in the first photo, a tiny little thing, hardly seeming to be enough to have a priest in, not to mention a congregation.
The other photos show Matt using his megaphone to try and get all the rowdy VTers rounded up to do the photoshoot, and Stacey, Carmen and Sandra smiling for the camera.
As for the history of the church itself, if you are interested, I found a nice article on one of the sites I used to research before going to Krakow.

Slaskie Oblaty

by jorgec25

Slaskie Oblaty are delicious round and large cookies, that I bought in Pszczyna.

I tried the Vanilla and Cinnamon options and loved them so much that I had to bring a few boxes back home with me.

Sadly, I have eaten them all by now, lol

The ZPAP International Arts Festival

by johngayton

I had no idea what this was all about when I encountered this little event happening on the Maly Rynek (the small square just of the main one) but it all looked quite colourful and entertaining.

There were various events happening on the stage including some sort of play, followed by a display of folk dancing. At the stalls around the square there was an artificial rockface which seemed to be being used for a climbing competition, some guy judging paintings and a simultaneous chess exhibition.

It was only having returned and going through my pics that I had a chance to do a bit of research and it looks like I missed out on quite an important local event.

ZPAP is the Association of Polish Artists and the local festival here in Krakow takes place from mid to end May once every three years. The festival is intended to promote local art at every level and to encourage international exchanges and involvement.

Exhibitions are city-wide with many prominent local artists and galleries contributing as well as competitions and events intended to include a broad spectrum of talent.

The website below has all the info and though in Polish seems to translate quite well using Google Translator.

KS Cracovia Krakow

by HORSCHECK

KS Cracovia Krakow is the oldest sports club in Poland. It was established in 1906 and won the first Polish football championships in 1921. Cracovia promoted to the first football league in 2004 after 20 years in lower leagues. The club has a strong hostility towards Wisla Krakow.
It is tradition that Cracovia's first and second team play a friendly match at midday of New Year's day. I attended this match in the Cracovia Stadium which has a capacity of 9000. About 5000 attended the New Year's match which ended with 7:4.
