    • Train from Krakow to Berlin

      Krakow May 2, 2015 at 1:29 AM

      Hi, my friend and I intend to travel from Krakow to Berlin either as an overnight sleeper train on 17 Jun, or an early morning train on 18 Jun. However we're having some trouble booking the train. I've tried both DB Bahn and the Polish Rail website. Could anyone recommend a particular train schedule, price and website that we can book on that we can consider? We would prefer a sleeper train to save money on lodgings, but the early morning train would be fine as well. Thanks very much!

      Getting from Krakow to Prague

      Krakow Apr 13, 2015 at 1:19 PM

      Hello. I see a post a few lines down about the overnight train from Krakow to Prague. Can anybody give me updated information about this? Is this the best or only website on which I can see train schedules between these routes? I wasnt planning an overnight train but if that is the best option then I am willing. Thank you.

      Auschwitz/Salt Mine tour

      Krakow Apr 21, 2015 at 4:21 AM

      Hi,

      My sister and I will be visiting Krakow in June in order to visit Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. We hope to do this in one day. I know it will be a long day but we have very limited time in Krakow. Was wondering if anyone might be able to suggest a tour company to do this with. We would need to be picked up from out hotel in Krakow, transferred to Auschwitz. We are interested in guided tour (English) of Auschwitz and Birkenau. Transfer would be required to the salt mine and transfer back to our hotel when finished. We are looking for the best company to book for our big day out. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!

      Bialystok - Kaunas

      by Drugness Online Now Jun 30, 2011 at 11:23 AM

      Hello all.
      Me again
      I'm hoping to travel from Bialystok - Kaunas on a Thursday morning/evening.
      The problem is, i see the bus doesn't go on a Thursday and that the train (leaving B. around 10.15) doesn't arrive in Kaunas until about 16.30 (LT time)so the day is pretty much gone

      Can you knowledgeable folk tell me if these are my only 2 options to get to Kaunas?
      I would have loved to hire a car to cover this route but as i understand it cross-border carhire is a pretty big no no.

      Thank you all!

      Car hire in Bialystok

      by Drugness Online Now Jun 23, 2011 at 5:01 AM

      Hello all
      Sorry for opening a new post on this but can someone who is in the know please tell me what car hire companies are available in Bialystok?
      I know that Hertz are not there, but Avis are... but the prices for short term car hire are just scandalous... so if you know of others in the area, i'd love to hear about them!
      Thanks!

      Cultural attractions close to Bialystok

      by Drugness Online Now Jun 20, 2011 at 10:45 AM

      Hello all
      I understand this region is very good for nature lovers so thats great, as i plan to visit Augustow too
      I'm not into spending nights camping or hours hiking, and because of this does that make this region a little unsuited to me? I'd like to experience the outdoors but also immerse myself in the cultural side of things.
      Are there are towns or villages near Bialystok which i should definitely visit to see fine examples of restored architecture, castles or nice old towns?
      I'm debating whether its really worth my while stopping off in this region during my trip, or just spend more time closer to somewhere like Olsztyn?
      All tips are much appreciated!
      Regards
      DG

      Is the trip to the primeval forest from Warsaw best taken by car or organized tour? Advisable to spend the night there? Is the trip warranted?
