  • You've heard of Oskar Schindler, right?

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not really a tourist trap, just a big let-down. A disappointment. This was the factory of Oskar Schindler. Not much there, is there? It's located out-of-the-way in an industrial neighborhood. It's a factory. Just like a million others. (Not even an enamelware factory any longer.) Nothing (that I could see) to mark its significance. But then, what was I expecting?

    Take care at Hotel Polonia....

    Take care at Hotel Polonia. Insist on hotel clerks checking your passport from your hands only. They usually just give it back to you after you give them your credit card information. I think it´s not necessary to do this.. actually to my point of view, they kidnapped my passport, haha. :-) When I was in Prague, for instance, the hotel owner told me: 'Since you´re going early in the morning, leave the money on the table in your room'... can you believe it? It´s nice to trust the traveller!

    Every old town seems to have these horse drawn carriages to take tourists around town at extortionate prices.
