      Hello, On Saturday 18th June we shall be leaving our hotel on the German island of Rugen and travelling to Miedzyzroje in Poland by car with two small dogs. We would like to use a ferry near Swinoujscie rather than go the long road route. I cannot seem to find very comprehensive information. I would like to know if we have to book the ferry or can we just arrive there. What times does the ferry run, how long it takes. Where do we go and what is the ferry company name and where does it land. Do we stay in the car with our two small dogs, how much does it cost etc. Also, having never been to Poland is there anything else we should know. The party comprises of 3 English women and 1 English man plus our little dogs. I would be very grateful if any of you kind people could help me. Thank you in advance. Best Wishes from Norfolk in the UK. Marion

      Short trip to Eastern Poland from Belarus (Brest? Grodno?)

      Poland Nov 2, 2015 at 10:11 AM

      We are visiting Belarus now. I want to visit Poland, some towns close to border. Our transportation are public buses, trains and we have limited time and money.

      So we have to choice to pass border in Brest/Terespol or Grodno. Which is faster and more easy to pass?

      And which city, towns to visi in Poland? Lublin?, Bielsk Podlaski? Bialystok, Elk?, Suwalki? We have been to Biala Podlaska before. Warsaw looks to be too large city for short rip.
      Do Terespol have only (bus, train) connection to Warsaw direction?

      We want to do some shoping (some food, Polish sport shoes and clothes, Polish cosmetics), some sightseeing (architecture, old buildings), local food, resaurant...

      Can you recomend where pass the border and which place to visit in Poland?

      Hello, I'm joining my husband on a business trip at the end of January for one week. He is visiting a company in Olawa Poland. We were thinking about staying in Wroclaw. He needs to be at the company for Tues., Wed. and Thurs. We thought if we left on Fri. from Toronto, Ontario, we would take advantage of a stop over and also try to visit one other place for a couple of days before arriving in Wroclaw. Any suggestions on where to stop over first? When we arrive in Poland any suggestions on places to visit,stay and eat would be very helpful, also what kind of weather would we be in for at the end of Jan.? Thank you for any advise or suggestions.

      Train Timetables..

      by andrewdebono Online Now Sep 30, 2014 at 8:15 AM

      In order to travel from Wroclaw to Poznan, I shall most probably be using a train from Wroclaw Glowny, which I read, takes about 3 hours. Is the timetable on the local transport website reliable ? Cause I have heard that trains in winter tend to delay quite often, and that the trip I have mentioned above takes about 6 hours in reality..

      I will be entertaining colleagues and only have the sunday before going out of town on business.
      Are many shops open ...
      nice traditional places to eat maybe on the river. I am familiar with Poland and my colleagues are not so it would be good to take them for a high standard polish restaurant for example... and to see some traditional sites... but with only about 5 hours spare how best to spend it?

      Transfer from Wroclaw airport into the city

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Jul 29, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      Next Saturday I am arriving at Wroclaw airport and have to get myself plus a big heavy suitcase into the city, precisely: to the student dorms in Plac Grunwaldski. (This is for a four week language class at the university.)

      We got some basic information from the school concerning bus/tram connections but they sound complicated, especially with luggage.
      Which would be the best connection to take? Arrival time is 2 p.m. on Sat Aug 2.
      What tickets would I need and where to obtain them at the airport?
      Is it true that I need an additional ticket for my luggage?

      How about taxis? They say taxis at the airport are expensive and they gave us a telephone number to call for cheaper taxis, but I do not yet feel confident about making a phone call in Polish!!! After the class that will be different but not before!
      How much will a regular taxi, i.e. one that I grab at the taxi ranks at the airport, cost from the airport to Plac Grunwaldski?

      Do I assume correctly that there are ATMs at the airport?

      Apologies if I sound silly but the worst stage of travel fever has kicked in and I am currently a bit hysteric... so I'd be grateful for advice.
      Kind encouraging words are also welcome;-)

      Summer language courses at Wroclaw university

      by Kathrin_E Online Now May 24, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I have started learning Polish last year and recently heard that Wroclaw university offers intensive language courses of four weeks duration during the summer. The programme sounds interesting: and I am seriously considering it, although I am hardly beyond beginner level and it might be too early this year.

      Anyway: Is there anyone around who has done this? I'd be interested in hearing about your experiences.

      (It's Wroclaw because I have friends/connections there, hence less interested in other cities.)

We always try to meet locals with a good knowledge of the city who are willing to act as our local "guide" so that we can get a locals perspective rather then a tour book view. We do the same thing for visitors to the San Francisco Bay Area. We feel that we get so much more depth traveling this way.
