Perhaps, this could help. I used it for Europe trip. Great advice but be patient and read on.

It is certainly doable and not very expensive.
Since Ukraina is pretty big - where you going to?

Otherwise there is Moscow-Kiev-Venice direct car weekly. Buy the ticket in two portions:
- Kiev->Budapest (about 40 Euro + sleeper upgrade)
- Budapest->Venice (55 Euro regular ticket, give 15-20 Euro to the sleeper attendant for the upgrade)

The Budapest->Venice and Moscow/Kiev->Budapest is daily.

Keep in mind, some people need Croatian visa because the train passes Croatia. And Taiwanese passholders can't use that train because Croatia won't give visa to any Taiwanese.

Others have no problem, most "Western" citizens can enter Croatia visa-free.

Reservations: you don't need to worry much about. These trains are rarely sold out, just go to the station a day before. You can buy Budapest->Venice ticket in most E.U. countries, reservation included. So as you arrive to Europe (not sure, what is the first country) you can buy that ticket - if you know the day. If you want to stay flexible, just buy it in Budapest.

There are daily coaches operated by Eurolines from Krakow to Italy. Otherwise you can try to find a budget flight to Pisa. From there you could taqke a direct train or bus to Florence.

Travel Tips for Krakow

The main square.

by Maurizioago

Rynek Glowny is the largest Medieval square in Poland. It's surrounded by many old palaces, cafes, shops and restaurants. The highlights of this square are the church of S. Mary that was built between 1287 and 1320 on the remains of a Romanesque church. The present construction is a result of a restoration made at the end of the XIX century. In the middle of the square the long building you see is the Sukiennice (cloth hall). It was originally built in the 14th century as a center for the cloth trade. It was destroyed by fire in 1555 and rebuilt in the Renaissance style with alterations made in the 19th century. Besides this building you see what remains of the old town hall; the tower. The 14th century town hall was pulled down in the 1820's. On a corner of this square lies the small church of S. Adalbert. It was built the X century and was reconstructed between 1611 and 1618.

This square serves also as a place for open air events.

In honor of the martyred...

by DrewV

In honor of the martyred watchman, since that time, the people of Krakow have played his song every hour on the hour, and just as he did during that famous attack, they cut the song short in the middle of a note. This tradition has lasted for years, becoming a symbol of Polish independence and liberty in the face of overwhelming odds. Even during German, Austrian, and Russian occupation, the hejnal has resonated from the top tower of Saint Mary's; in fact, the noon rendition is broadcast nationwide. Hey now!

If you can see the trumpet, congratulations! You don't need glasses!

The Trompet Player

by pieter_jan_v

Each hour a trompet player plays the hejnal from the four sides of the Maria Church, Kosciól Mariacki. That tune is suddely interrupted to commemorated the fact that this happened in the Middle Ages when Tartar troups approached the city and the watchman playing the hejnal -the signal to close the city gates- was hit by an arrow.

The hejnal also can be heard each day at the national Polish radio 1 at Noon.

Communication is difficult,...

by Eberhard

Communication is difficult, particularly outside the city. English is spoken by some of the younger people and German by some older ones.
In public services (museum, train etc) you can still find the customer unfriendly socialist attitude. It is not easy to change. Overall, if you do not expect over-friendliness, you will not be disappointed. People are still somewhat reserved and it is difficult for them not to be able to speak other languages (as I did not speak polish)

TS Wisla Kraków

by kolabor

Kraków is said to be the football capital of Poland and Wisla Kraków is one of the oldest Polish football clubs (1906, with the oldest- Cracovia since 1905) and currently is clearly the best.

Out of 9 State Championships 4 have been won after the year 2000 and it's 3 out of 3 in the last years, plus- first thus far in the league with 55 games not lost at home- best result in Europe as far as I remember! Not to mention the fact that Wisla was second in the league 11 times, won the Polish Cup 4 times and played in the finals another 5 times, 1 Supercup and 1 League Cup.

Successes in Europe aren't as numerous as the national, but just form the recent history victories over AC Parma (2002, 5:3 on aggregate), Schalke 04 (2002, 5:2 on agg.), barely lost games with Lazio (2002 4:5 on agg.), honorable loss to Barcelona (2001 3:5 on agg.) dramatic win against Real Saragossa (2000 6:5 on agg.) and a few more.

If you're looking for stars- don't expect those known worldwide, but in our scale Wisla has many stars. If you're determined enough you may try and go to an open training to see them playing, get an autograph or a photo. These are usually around 10 AM on weekdays at the stadium's training pitch. As Wisla's unofficial name is White Star you may bring something with this theme, but also anything red-white-blue will do. Learning a few basic chants is also welcome, some are simple even for someone who had no contact with Polish
