Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

Are the shuttles that you refer to between Cracow and the camps... or between Auschwitz and Birkenau? In my post I referred to the shuttles between the two camps. But the buses between Krakow and Auschwitz are in abundance, too. There are several lines coonecting those two places, so there won't be...

Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

Back to Krakow and our wish to see the death camps, what if there will be more than six of us wanting to take the day tour? Maybe they also have regular mini-buses for a somewhat larger group (say, six to ten people)? I am also thinking of the fact that, if we rent a car, someone will have to do th...

This is untrue. Poland is safer than England ... and a great deal more hospitable.
Thank you very much for these kind words, friend. Yes, Polish people are hospitable and very open.

Re: Questions and Answers concerning The Event, Poland etc.

Mirek, I kept wondering what you meant by "things to avoid". One, I am sure, would be "money changing in any places other than banks" - but can you be more specific about the things you had in mind when you said that? Well, usually there are several things that you should avoid when visiting other ...

That's right, Tom - you need to be a registered YouTube user. But I think one should create an account just for the solely purpose of flagging this video as inappropriate.

Re: Questions and Answers concerning The Event, Poland etc.

Okay, I'll start, Mirek :) . Some of us are wanting to rent a van [a standard size ~ a mini is too small] to drive from Cracow to Auschwitz-Birkenau and, who knows, maybe elsewhere, as well. My initial checking showed the cheapest to be about $160.00 USD/day ~ however, it seems they are for pick-up...
