4 Nights in Krakow

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Krakow as part of a school study-abroad trip for 4 nights and have a fairly regimented schedule. We'll be staying less than 10 minutes (walking) from Market Square and will have two evenings free and one afternoon from 1:30 until 7:30. As we are in town studying the Holocaust/Shoah, we will be visiting many of the sites related to that including the Schindler Factory, Płaszow concentration camp, Auschwitz/Birkenau, Podgórze Jewish Ghetto, Kazimierz Jewish District, etc... During my off-time I'd like to do a bit of shopping and also wondered if I can swing a trip out to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. There is a tour that is offered in English at 3:30 pm. I have read that it takes about half an hour to get there via train from Krakow so I have plenty of time for the commute there. With that said, do I have enough time to do the 3:30 tour and get back to my hotel by 7:10ish?

Also, as far as shopping, I know that I want to bring back some Polish pottery, and a set of Polish nesting dolls, and some amber. Do the shops close at 5:00 or are they open later in the evening?

Thanks in advance!
