Hello omnia, welcome to the Polish Forum.

I will not say anything about the other places you have mentioned as I do not know them well enough.

But I Love Krakow and surrounding areas like Zakopane. I hope you find these helpful. It is about 100 Km from Krakow to Zakopane.

Best of luck.

All of Wroclaw's sights can be seen in two or three days. Add a couple of days, if you want to use Wroclaw as your base and visit the surrounding area.

You'll find more in Krakow, but better night life in Wroclaw.

warsaw is awesome and it'd take you all summer to check out the main cool things about it. BUT if you like mountains the go to krakow, 4 sure.

Thread attached on merging:
what about Gdansk?

Hi people, i've asked before, about spending a month in Poland in July whether Warsaw or Krakow were a better choice...now Someone recommended Gdansk...

please share your opinion, is Gdansk a good choice for a whole month? or will i get bored?
