In Krakow primarily you should see Castle, Old Town, Sukiennice and Kazimierz District. You can take a ride with cab, you should try casserole on Kazimierz District at "u Endziora" and krakovian pretzels. Also you can go to CK Browar - a pub which is famous of making beer on customer's eyes. You can find in Krakow cheap accomodation, and you can sightsee the town on a bike.

anunia1985 - "Also you can go to CK Browar - a pub which is famous of making beer on customer's eyes. "

I'm not understanding this remark. Can you explain it?

Also I was wondering since I don't speak Polish how difficult would it be to travel through Poland?

I think anunia means they brew the beer in front of the customers.

It's easy to travel in Poland and other European countries since English is the second language and people dealing with tourists speak English, even if they only know typical tourist words/phrases.

In Poland nearly all speak English, better, worse but you should not have a problems with communication.

The In your pocket guides that Iris has recommended are brilliant for restaurants and maps.

In Krakow, the Galicia Jewish Museum is worth a visit and of course a day trip to Auschwitz I and II is highly recommended.
For shopping in Krakow there are lots of places to buy amber and there are excellent designer stores around the square with amazing bargains.

In Warsaw, the National Museum is interesting, in particular the twentieth-century section with amazing works by Strezeminski alongside Socialist realist works. The completely reconstructed old city is also interesting. There's also a small section of the ghetto wall at 55 Sienna St, that's very moving. There's a small museum attached.

Poland is a country so diversed that no matter where you go, you can admire the beautiful, unusual things. In the south of the country we have our wonderful mountains and Zakopane, winter capital city. At the headrest everyone is going to Masuria - the land of lakes. If they wan't to hear the sounds of the sea you can go to Sopot or Gdansk. We have many sights, monuments, museums, parks landscape. Polish Each region has its own traditions and customs, and everywhere you feel like home.
