Park Wodny?

by Red_Star_Nightmare

Hey everyone, Im going to Krakow in october and I am going to have a good amount of time there. I am just wondering if anyone has been to Park Wodny? It is a waterpark and I was thinking of going? Any comments about Park Wodny would be helpful, as well as any tips.
Thankies! xx

It was quite a few years ago that we went but I really enjoyed it, something a little different to do at night as it's open until 10 pm. We took a bus out there, my notes say it took about 15 minutes by bus.

I was few times with my son to help him to use tobogans where was the age limit (so the funniest for him). Aquaparks are generally boring for me- I'm too old o have fun with ups and downs on tobogans (there are also other tings like rope bridge- check its webpage) more than once or twice- max. three times. The disadvantage of such places is that swimming is difficult- not enough space for it usually. Surely it should be cheaper than is similar places west from Poland.

Travel Tips for Krakow

Suggestions on cities to visit around Krakow

by 68maciek

If you mean Krakow as 'a base':
1.Auschwitz Birkenau and Oswiecim (if you are able after visiting such place you can combain it with Pszczyna and/or Kalwaria).
2.You can make also seperate trip to Kalwaria/Lanckorona/Wadowice/Zator/Sucha Beskidzka (also Stryszow's castle and Wygiezlow/Babice's open air folk museum and castel ruins)
3.Wieliczka (also Niepolomice possible), Bochnia (and Wisnicz,Lipnica Murowana,also Debno's castel),Tarnow (can be split in two, or three)
4.Czestochowa 5.Perhaps Dobczyce and Myslenice 6.Sandomierz 7.Cieszyn (PL/CR), Bielsko Biala, Zywiec,Skoczow 8.Kielce (Jedrzejow,Tokarnia, Checiny)
9.Nowy Sacz/Stary Sacz, Krynica as a pretty old spa (Zakopane only if you want to hike, or visit Tatry mountanis)
Further: Warszawa (2.45 hours by train one way), Wroclaw (~~2.30 hours by car)
Search web pages if some of above places make sense for you.
If you want to do some hikings or see natural beauty places (and/or also combine it with visiting old/interesting stuff), or smaller interesting places than cities there are even more possibilities.
Krakow is also a good starting point for see something in Northern Slovakia or Czechia (Moravia), or to see some further places like Lodz,Zamosc,Lublin,Jaroslaw Lancut,Przemysl,Sanok and even Lviv in Ukraine.

Cloth Hall

this was the first shopping center in Krakow (14th century)
Looks like a bazar with stall in both sides selling handcrafts or religious stuff ..its a large corridor with just this.On the upper floor is the national gallery. Outside there is a tourist information point

THE WONDER BEER - OBOLON

by DAO


I have to admit that when I was told they had Ukrainian Weizen Bier at the bar, I was sceptical. It just sounded like 'Chinese Pizza' to me. I love Weizen Bier and Obolon not only surprised me - it impressed me. It was my most enjoyable beer in Krakow in a city and country full of fantastic beers, ales, porters and pilsners. Not only did it have that nice somewhat sweet taste, it had none of the chronic foam issues that Weizen Biers are plagued with. For beer drinkers that have never tried this type of beer, I will let the Obolon people explain (from thier website): "It is real Weizen Bier - unfiltered wheat beer of top fermentation, which has nice fruit and spicy flavour. It is beer created for special occasions, beer of a day off." It is only 5% alcohol which may partial explain its clean and non-foamy texture.

Obolon and its sister products are the result of the very 1st private business to be started in an Independant Ukraine in 1992. ALthough new, they used experts from the Czech Republic to produce a great range of beers in a short time. Thier website is definately worth a visit.

Make sure you enjoy at least one Obolon during your visit here!

Enjoying The City's Parks

by johngayton

Most Krakovians live in tenement buildings or apartment blocks and so at any opportunity when the sun's out socialise in the city's parks.

Communal tables are provided which are ideal for picnics and some use them for games of cards or chess. The first pic shows a little group of guys who've even brought their own cushions and tablecloth. I also noticed that some of the riverside tables have inlaid chessboards

The biggest European meadow

by matcrazy1

.
The other fantastic and huge area for jogging is Krakow's Blonia - THE BIGGEST EUROPEAN MEADOW.

It's unbelievable how did it happen that almost in the center of the city is such big (a few kilometers/miles) long green meadow. No skyscrapers, no buildings, no McDonald's just meadow. Nowadays better do not suggest to build anything there. Citizen's of Krakow seems to be proud to remain this unbuilt area.

Blonia are triangle-shape with it's apex just about 15 min. walking distance from the main market Square (near Cracovia Hotel and Kyiv cinema).
On 18th August 2002 there was the second biggest meeting of the people in the world's history just in Krakow's Blonia. Pope John Paul II presided – together with 200 Polish and foreign bishops – over the open-air Holy Mass on Krakow’s Blonia commons with 2.2 million attending.
