When in Poland


WARSAW

In a phrase: The capital city of Poland, brimming with history (and awesome pierogis). Even in its rebuilt state, Old Town will charm your socks off.
Good for: Wandering / Shopping / Food / History / Tourist Sites
Sleep at: Hilton Warsaw
Eat at: La Vinotheque
See: Old Town
Transport: Travelling in a group? Take taxis around the city. It's cheaper - or as cheap as - taking public transportation.
Great souvenir: Paper cut folk art and/or anything from Mr. Gugu & Miss Go

KRAKOW

In a phrase: The 'artistic' sister city of Warsaw, Krakow is supposed to be prettier and more bohemian than Warsaw. (I liked Warsaw better, but to each her own.)
Good for: Wandering / Food / History / Tourist sites / Shopping
Sleep at: Spatz Aparthotels
Eat at: Alchemia / Le Scandale / Manzana Mexicana (best Mexican ever)
See: The Jewish Quarter's (Kazimeirz) Plac Nowy / Wieliczka Salt Mine & Auschwitz II-Birkenau (you can do both in day trip - if you're travelling in a group book a private driver rather than taking a tour bus - it's cheaper) / Rynek Glowny (main square)
