I am travelling from lodz to prague on June 15. I want to travel by day to see a bit of the country side. Train through wroclaw is slow, 11hours. As its 530 km by road I thought a bus could be ok, only 8-9 hours apparently. But it would need to be comfortable. Not keen on flying and its quite expensive. What would you suggest?
Hi there, I've heard that they do not allow British people into the pubs/clubs in Krakow, how true is this? We are a group of 7 lads age range from 22-26, FAR from rowdy. Our main reason for the trip is to experience Auschwitz and the Salt Mines but as we do also like a night out we would love to sample the nightlife. My worry is that I've heard the Polish will not let the British in due to recent rowdy stag parties from England, how true/stricthe is this and what are the club's that we'll most/least likely to get into?
The more you in advance, Matt.
some time ago I read about a new museum being created in Warsaw. I don't know the name of it, but it was to exhibit Jewish life and customs before WWII. I wonder if anyone has the name? website? knows anything about a time table for completion?

We are flying into Krakow and then taking the rail to Zakopane to visit that town. Then the next day we want to take the rail to Krakow and spend the day there. At night we will take the night bus out of Krakow using their sleeper accommodations instead of a hotel. My question is, while we are visiting Krakow during the day, where on earth will we store our luggage? We are going to have good sized cases, not just backpacks...please advise!

There's a building, a few minutes away from the Unknown Soldier memorial. It's U-shaped, with many columns. It appears to be pale yellow in color. The building section (the base of the U) has a flag flying above it. The sections, on either side of the base building, have black decorations above its columns. The entryway has arches. There's a busy street that runs in front of the building.
