Here are a number of links that may be useful for anyone looking to research Krakow.

I reckon Hostel/Hotel Rooms will vary from 15 (Hostel) to 50 (good hotel in heart of the city) or the sky's the limit if you fancy one of Krakow's top class hotels.

Beer is 1 a pint, eating out is excellent quality and very cheap.

Weather should be good, I have had 42o C in Summer and - 22 C in Winter and everything in between !, May should be sunny.

Typical return flights are in region of 70 -90 including tax. You can pay more or less of course.

Taxi Airport to City centre is abt 10 - 12 or take the train for 2.

It is currently about 5 zloty to the pound. (0uch, used to be over 7 !!)

Anyway here are the links.

Just to reiterate David's enthusiasm, IMHO Krakow is the best place in the world. There are a surprisingly large number of Krakow nuts around, and not all of them have been locked up yet. Mostly they're to be found propping up Krakow's many and excellent bars and cafes.

If one was to believe the Daily Mail, I'd expect Krakow to be a bit of a ghost town, as all the residents are over here, stealing our jobs and sponging off the state. Apparently. Smile

Ona more serious note, it's a place I'd love to go, and I look forward to seeing the shots in the gallery.
