      Renting bicycles in Krakow

      Krakow May 7, 2015 at 7:04 PM

      Hello, We will be in Krakow in June. We were wondering if there is somewhere nearby that is nice to ride bicycles to for half day or so. A relaxing pretty ride through country, not busy roads or industrial areas. Maybe a lake or a river or a small quaint village or town. Also need a recommendation on where to rent the bicycles. Thank you.

    • 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 to Auschwitz Birkneau Memorial

      Krakow May 17, 2015 at 9:56 AM

      I am currently planning a trip for my family, and am doing some research about how we can reach Auschwitz Memorial & Museum. Till now I have found the PoloRail Website, however I heard that it is possible to travel from Krakow Old Town to the Auschwitz Memorial via bus?

      Can someone explain possible transport methods/and the respective prices? (apart from car rental - as I am from Malta and am not comfortable with left hand drive)

      Thanks, Terence

      Accommodation in Zakopane - to be in proximity of cross-country ski trails/ easy alpine trails

      by penny_g Online Now Dec 30, 2013 at 8:03 AM

      Hi all,

      For this winter, after a long research, I chose Zakopane in Poland for some winter sport activities. As I understand, it's a town - something like "a gate" to the ski trails located up in the mountains. While looking for accommodation, I got a bit confused, since the website lists several small villages. I would definitely need a place close to cross-country ski routes, ideally also to easy Alpine ski trails. Which of the villages should be the best then? Are there any good and reliable local bus connections?

      Many thanks in advance! Let me also take the chance to wish you an exciting 2014!

      My family and I will be in Zakopane between the 5th and 9th April for the Easter Holidays. Can anyone please confirm if the Mountain funiculars/chairlifts operate on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The ones that I am mostly interested in are Gubałówka, Butorowy Wierch and Kasprowy Wierch.

      Can anyone also confirm if the buses/minibuses operate on the same dates to Polana Palenaca (for Morskie Oko), Kunisce (for Kasprowy Wierch) or Siwa Polana (for Chocholowska Valley).

    • What time is the first cable car to Kasprowy Wierch? (Early July)

      by coddy Online Now May 11, 2008 at 2:09 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I am planning to visit Zakopane for the third time in early July. My friend and I are cycling from Prague down to Austria and the Danube, through Vienna and Bratislava, into Hungary and up then up through the lower Slovakian Tatras.

      When we get to Poland we would like to climb Rysy and also to traverse the Eagle Ridge (Orla Perc). I have done both but my friend is looking forward to the experience.

      What we plan to do is to cycle from Slovakia to Morskie Oko, stay overnight in the mountain hut, climb Rysy and then cycle to Zakopane to spend the night there.

      The following morning we would like to get an early start and catch the first cable car of the day. Does anyone know what time that will be? (Early July) Can anyone please give me a rough time to complete the ridge and descend back to Zakopane from Wlk. Woloszyn via Gasienicowa and Dolina Jaworzynka?

      Alternatively we could cycle from Slovakia straight to Zakopane,stay the night, catch the cable car up to do the Eagle Ridge and then spend the night at Morskie Oko. Climb Rysy the next day and either walk back to Zakopane or use public transport from Morskie Oko.

      Will the Mountain Hut at Morskie Oko be busy in early July? When are the Polish school holidays?

      Can anyone recommend accommodation in Zakopane?

      Any advise on our itinerary will be most welcome.

      Thank you in advance

      Regards
      Coddy.
