I am planning a trip over the Christmas/New Year period and would like some help with the following:-

Being Christmas/New Year will many sights/museums be closed and what city is the best to base myself in...I am thinking when everything is closed i.e. 25th I can still walk around and enjoy the architecture?

Zakopane & exploring the Tatras in November

Can anyone offer in previous experience with regards to trekking around the Tatras in mid November, i.e. what’s off limits etc. I plan to fly to Krakow & then make my way to Zakopane where I will hopefully have 7/10 days to go exploring. Also is it still possible to do any mountain biking around these parts at this time of the year? (Would need to hire a bike)

Also, what is Zakopane like for tourists at this time of the year? I don't like too many crowds around me!

Thanks

Kraków: MPK tickets on Regionalne trains?

Hi -

Could anyone please tell me if a normal bus/tram ticket for Kraków (bilet czasowe) is valid on regional trains within the city zone? In other words, can you use an MPK ticket on a Regionalne train from Płaszów to Główny, for example, or must a separate ticket for the regional train be purchased?

I've found information about integrated monthly tickets for journeys further out from Kraków, but not about within Zone I on czasowe tickets.

Krakow to Budapest - best travel options

Hi guys,

I'm scheduled to travel from Krakow to Budapest on the night of 9th October. I've been checking online and the train prices seem to be ridiculously expensive at the moment, most around 400-odd PLN for a 6 person couchette.

I considered using OrangeWays buses but they don't ride out on the 9th of October and I cannot possibly reschedule my date for travelling.

I've also considered using BlaBla car but I guess there isn't any surety with that because there aren't any schedules as…

500 Zloti fine for not having a paper stating that I have the right to drive in Poland

I rented a car at the Gdansk airport with my California drivers licence. When I was questioned by the police in Gdynia on another matter, they asked to see my drivers licence. They said I could not drive in Poland with just a US driver's licence. I must also have a paper that stated that I was allowed to drive a car in Poland. Since I did not have this paper, they fined me 500 Zloti.
