KRAKOW TO KOSICE

by SO01240

This May my wife and I would like to take a train from Krakow to Kosice. Does anyone have a route they might suggest???

Thanks much.

You can find train times and detail in English here;

or here:

I would simply take the fastest route, which seems to be the 13:40 departure with only 2 changes (taking almost 9 hours in total).

Go by train from Krakow Glowny (or Dworzec Glowny) is Krakow main train station: http://www.cracow-life.com/services/services_details/1158-Dworzec_Glowny

Re: KRAKOW TO KOSICE

by GyuriFT

In the main season there is a non-stop service running as far as Keszthely in Hungary via Budapest.

It is a great shame, the fast and cheap Krakow-Kosice-Miskolc-Budapest route is now since a year only in season. But if you are lucky, than you can depart Krakow at 19:18 and arrive Kosice 4:43. Somewhat early, but at least non-stop.

The said train runs from June 17 till Sep. 3.

Travel Tips for Krakow

City with face and special atmosphere

by Raimix

City face and that special atmosphere is made both by people around and all that architecture, sounds, music, smells and so on.

Crouds of people watching around, making some actions, the mimics shows and folk dances on the streets and town hall square, gipsies playing guitar, monks walking from one religical place to another, sounds of churches' bells, smell of Turkish kebabs and Polish "Zapiekanka" - all that makes special and nice atmosphere of Krakow. You have to experience it your own, when visiting this city. I really loved being in Town Hall square and watching things around.

TOWN HALL TOWER- WIEZA RATUSZOWA

by LoriPori

Krakow's 70-meter tall TOWN HALL TOWER or WIEZA RATUSZOWA, is situated close to the Cloth Hall in the Main Market Square - Rynek Glowny. The Town Hall goes back to 1316 and has been reconstructed many times. The Town Hall itself, was demolished betweeen 1817 - 1820, leaving only the Belfry standing. The massive Gothic Tower is built of stone and brick. It got its first clock in 1524 and its present baroque roof dates back to 1686,
Visitors brave enough to climb the Tower's 100 narrow and steep staircase, will be rewarded with a wonderfful panoramic view of the city from the top.
Ground floor contains a tourist information center.
The entrance to the Tower is guarded by a pair of stone lions carved at the beginning of the 19 th century (Photo # 4).

Great hospitality

by Raimix

I am a member of Hospitality club. This time I was travelling through this organisation as well, so I had places where to stay overnight. I was happy to meet really extremelly hospitable people in Krakow. They gave me where to sleep, gave me warm welcome, useful knowledge about Krakow and nice time together. It is always nice to know on the trip how locals live, and I got such possibility to experience that. Thanks to them everyday was so special.

Aluminium Barbican

by Skeptic-jr

Barbican is one of significant symbols of Krakow and city's citizen like it very much. You can read about it in every tourists' guide or in my "must see" tips as well.

Summer 2003 on Blonia, the big meadow in the Krakow's center, stood another barbican. It was aluminium one made of beer's tins. It was a part of action which was developed by local authorities and ecologists organisations to promote the idea of recycling and rubbish segregation.

Look also at Barbican

Look up........always look up!

by leics

Krakow, like many European cities, is full of fascinating architectural twiddles and fantasies.

Many of them lie above your head, with lower floors remodelled and modernised and sometimes nothing but plate-glass windows.

Some of the buildings in the Old Town date back to the 15th or 16th century (1400/1500s). If you look closely you can still see evidence of their earlier form......some more obvious than others.

Not so very long ago, very few people were literate. If you wanted to have something delivered, you needed something to mark out your house. Look for these carvings over the main doorways. 'The house under the lobster', perhaps, or the 'house under the five bells'.

So keep your eyes open as you wander both the Old Town and elsewhere...there is much to spot.
