    The food was great!

    This tiny diner is modest in appearance and skimpy in customer service, but offers a good variety of traditional polish dinners and lunches. The food is home made and delicious. An average dinner cost approximately 12 ZL (CDN $4.61, USD $3.69).

    Favorite Dish: Goulash and perogies. Tastes like grandma made it herself.

    Majority of the hapenning spots are along the main strip. Don't think that you will find some crazy club there. There are a few bars with a good range of food and of course Polish Beer where you can meet other vacationers, backpackers and mountain climbers.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    If you are traveling to Kudowa, express busses are the best way. The bus station is located on the main street, you can't miss it. The schedules are posted on the wall. You buy the tickets from the bus driver when you board the bus. If you have a large backpack, you must buy an additional ticket (fairly cheap) for it and place if yourself in the cabin under the bus. I took the bus from Kudowa to Wroclaw and it cost me about 22 ZL (CDN $8.46, USD $6.76). The buses run from early morning to late evening. I believe that there are no night busses. Also, there are buses to the Czech Republic and organized bus tours from the Tourist Info Office.

    As for getting around Kudowa, the place is so small that you can walk everywhere. You only need to take buses if you are going to another town. You can also walk the 6 km to the Czech border and cross it on foot.

    On certain days, you will find tons of vendors in the Kudowa Park. They will be selling local craft and jewellery from Polish stones. The crafts and jewellery are absolutely stunning at incredible prices. If you think that you will find something cheaper elsewhere, you are wrong. You will find tons of good gifts for friends here. Most vendors there speak english as well.

    What to buy: Jewellery.
    Local Craft.
    Precious and semi-precious stones.
    Souvenirs and gifts.

    What to pay: A lot less then you expect.

Kudowa-Zdroj Local Customs

    There are general polish customs here. Being curtous and respectful to the people of Kudowa is the main thing. Littering is a sin, once you see Kudowa you will know why. Tipping is something new in Poland. However, when the waiter brings you the bill, pay right away and tell him/her how much you want back. Generally, you do not leave money on the table for tip of payment, you hand it directly to the waiter/waitress. Also, if you are American or Canadian, don't expect superior service. Everything moves a lot slower there including waitressing service.

Kudowa-Zdroj What to Pack

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you are going in the mountains, make sure to have a sturdy and comftorable backpack. You will need to take food, water, and waterproof clothes and first aid supplies with you.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Casual clothes for walks and going out.

    Warmer sweaters and jackets, the temperature drops severely at night.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: First aid stuff for mountain hiking, general every day toiletries

    Photo Equipment: You will want to take a ton of photos once in the mountains. I found my digi cam to be good, my friend brought a video cam and my mom had her manual camera. All 3 proved to be essential.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: For mountain climbing/hiking:
    good comftorable shoes
    water proof jacket (even better if its a bright colour)
    change of socks and shirt (in the heat, you will be soaked by the time you get to the top and you're body temperature will drop)
    hat/visor to protect from the sun
