1. a lot of choose from - i don't think any of them would be booked up at this time of the year.

2. i suggest you to take a visitor's guide and start from that. most attractions are in the market square area unless you want to visit Wieliczka, for example.

3. plenty of pubs, discos, restaurants. again - i would keep close to the center if possible.

4. popular foods like golabki, pierogi, bigos, schabowy ("pork chop"), there are good Polish fish (like "szczupak"). you'll get everything in a good restaurant.

5. this I don't know. Is it some kind of cigarette?

tobacco...... around 16 zlotys for 50g of virginia i believe.

and the good thing is you can bring a load of the stuff back because it doesn't come under the same customs control as cigs, which you are only allowed 200 at the moment.

enjoy your time, poland is fantastic......... that's from an englishman ;)

Just returned from Cracow two days ago...VERY cold there snowed one night. Check out Music Bar 9 and the Cellar Bar on Ulica Szewska...right off the Rynek. Cellar Bar is quite cheap and are very welcoming to tourists.
