Trip Report Krakow with photos

Jump to last reply

I'd been wanting to go to Krakow for years. Quite a few years ago I knew two people who went the same year and sent postcards, and ever since I thought it looked like a great place to spend a few days. But it's just so hard to combine it with anything else. Other than Warsaw, which I really wasn't that interested in, it's almost a full day train ride from anywhere. So when I discovered that I could actually fit it in between Norway and Italy (I know, not your usual combination) I decided to do it. Norwegian Air has direct flights between Bergen and Krakow, only once a week but it's only a little over 2 hours and €125. Getting from Krakow to Italy would have involved at least one change and taken the better part of a day so I decided to add in a few days in London - and there were fairly quick, cheap flights from Krakow to London and from London to Rome. And that's how I ended up going to Krakow.

I had five nights, so four full days, which was just about perfect. I did one day trip to Auschwitz, which took most of that day, and another trip to the Salt Mine, but that only took half a day, leaving me with two and a half days to see Krakow itself.

Tango House B&B Unbeatable location just steps from the main market square. You can hear the church bells and the bugler from the room. In an historic old building (the first public baths in Krakow), inside the room there are exposed brick walls but it has all been recently remodeled and it is modern and clean. Great bed, linens, shower, bathroom. Internet works, TV, kettle for coffee. The reception is on the ground floor but the B&B rooms are two flights up – interesting paintings on the walls in the halls. Very friendly reception. I had a flight schedule change a few weeks before the trip meaning I would land less than an hour before the reception was to close (open 8am-10pm) and when I emailed them about it they offered to have a taxi meet me. 20€ seemed reasonable not to have to worry about figuring out public transportation or getting there after reception closed. Breakfast (substantial: meats and cheeses, yogurts, cereals, breads, fruit, coffee, tea, etc.) not included but was only 5€ extra bringing the cost to 67€/night – or about half what I just paid in Norway.
