/ Kraków to Stockholm, Riga, and Helsinki - any suggestions?
We encountered only one of the things you mentioned - the market in Helsinki harbor. We ate salmon paella at one of the stalls, but it was overpriced and not very tasty. One thing I did discover on my journey was pear cider - wow. I wish it was available in Kraków...
Comparing the cities, Vilnius actually seemed more attractive to me than Tallinn or Riga. However, the people seemed a bit too aggressive for a soft American such as myself - I was never quite comfortable in Vilnius.
I too noticed the women in Riga and heartedly concur - I actually expected Vilnius to 'win' in this department, but Riga gets my vote. Nothing close to Kraków, however (it's good to be home... :)
Related: Krakow - Stockholm (the cheapest way?)
I'm planning to go from Krakow to Stockholm in early July.
Does anybody know how would be the cheapest to do so?
Would be better to go by train to Warsaw?
Fly with Ryanair to Skavsta (Nyköping), and from there a 1 hour bus to Stockholm. It's the cheapest option. Flight (oneway) should be around 60-80 zl (plus luggage and other fees) or more depending on day and date. The bus (oneway) is about 50-70 zl.
I do this route all the time.
