I gotta come and study in poland in september and i have a choice between wroclaw and krakow. So i was wondering which is the better city to live in? In terms of cost of living, fun, job oppurtunities, inetrnships, clubs, pubs, the entire deal...and which in your opinion has more foreign students? Ive heard some good stuff about wroclaw, but people tell me that krakow has a better nightlife and that is VERY important to me. so some help people!!!

Definitely Krakow, but possibly more expensive :)

from june 2008:

Warszawa i Wrocław to najdroższe miasta w Polsce. Natomiast stolica polskiej turystyki, Kraków, jest stosunkowo tanim miastem. - pisze dziennik "Polska". Gazeta przedstawia zestawienie cen produktów i usług w poszczególnych miastach.

Warsaw and Wroclaw are the most expensive cities in PL ... Costs of living in Krakow is relatively cheap... .

Krakow has the most international students where as warsaw probably has the most international people. But thats not wroclaw. Best bet is Krakow.

hmm makes sense i guess. Though im still curios to learn about the internship oppurtunities in krakow as opposed to wroclaw. International students being more in krakow is a good thing. Looks like its gonna be fun...

Depends which university you attend I'm sure the universities have a career office that can help in finding internships. But yea google I thought was in Wroclaw but Krakow still have a lot of multinational corporations doesn't GE have a big plant outside of Krakow?
