Hello everybody...
I need some helps and also some advices...From September 28th - October 5th. I will do some journey in Poland. But I need some advices and also information. Which places are best recommended ?

First day I will arrive at night so I plan directly to Warsaw and book hotel there...
About the transportation.. Is there any sale in public transportation price? Or is there any tagesticket (daily ticket) to be use in most of the public transportation there?

2 days later I plan to go to another big city.. any recommendation? which city should I visit? For your kinda2 help....Thank you so much...

You need to give us a few more clues here... why are you visiting Poland, and what do you want to see and do there?

From my experience, the Warsaw underground is quite a cheap way of getting round. I tend to buy a carnet of single journey tickets.

You have to go to Krakow, Wroclaw and Poznan i think these are the best cities in Poland...Krakow and Wroclaw are great night out and very cool to visit.

My favorite cities are Krakow and Poznan the best by far... have fun.

The most popular city for tourists is Krakow. Gdansk/Sopot at the coast is also very nice.

I recommend Poznań (hah, and not because I study there :) ), it's a big, modern city with a long history. The market square with a town hall is very beautifull, Stary Browar - shopping and art centre - is definitely worth seeing.

Kraków is of course 'a must see' place but it's too crowded with tourists. You're visiting Poland in September/October, so the there's a chance there wouldn't be so many people.

And Zakopane in Tatra Mountains in southern Poland. It's quite far from Warsaw, but close to Kraków and the sights and landscpaes are wonderful.

Tickets in Poznań (for students/school pupils it's 50%): 2 zł (bus/tram for 15 minutes), daily ticket: 13,20 zł.

I Warsaw you should be able to buy a ticket in a ticket-mashine at the airport (thwere should be one).
Here you can read about fares:

Best regards

A particular favourite of mine is Malbork Castle. A trip on the Elblag - Ostrooda canal nature reserve is very nice (forgive any spelling errors please). If you went up to Gdansk there is the Westerplatte monument. Also the small fishing village of Kluki is very interesting. The dunes at £eba are fascinating. Sopot is very nice especially the lovely ice cream cafe near the sea front. Anywhere around the Hel Penninsula is very picturesque. Of course Warsaw itself has a lot of historical places to visit and the Chopin museum. Krakow is a lovely place to visit and a walk along the river is a delight. Hope the weather is kind. Enjoy you visit. Regards Maz.

Why don't anyone suggest me to go to Warsaw? Warsaw is the capital city of Poland right?

It must be great to be in Poznan, Wroclaw and also Krakow.
Is there any 2days ticket or 3 days ticket in each city? or Is it only daily ticket available?

ehm...what are famous foods and drinks in Poland?

I advice you to visit Warsaw, but I'am a native Wasawer and thus may have a little bit more admiration towards this city...

Waraw for sure isn't an sightseeing spot...
There are many nice places but you have to know whch...
It is for people that don't like to have everything easy achievable...

Best regards

Visiting Warsaw:-

The Royal Castle, Statue of King Zygmunt 111. StJohn's Cathedral, Statue of the Child Insurgent,Historical Museum of Warsaw, statue of The Mermaid of Warsaw, the Barbican.

The Royal Road The Church of St Anne, Holy Cross Church, Monument to Nicolaus Capernicus, President's Palace and monument to Prince Józef Poniatowski, Teatr Wielki National Opera, Saxon Gardens with the lovely fountain. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Monument to the Warsaw Uprising.Krasiński Palace, Wilanów Palace, Potocki Mausoleum in the palace gardens. Powązki cemetry,Wilanów gardens Wilanów Palace, monument to the Victims of Soviet Terror, Pawiak prison, Warsaw ghetto. Palace of Culture and Science. These are just an assortment of places my family visited when in Warsaw. It is a place where a lot of things can be reached by foot. We didn't bother too much with transport but took a taxi to places that could not be reached by foot. You can buy a reasonably priced tourist guide book or just go on to the internet and google places to visit in Warsaw. It is very simple really. Hope this is helpful.

from north to south: gdansk and sorroundings, to torun, to krakow, to zakopane. if you have 7 days you'll be on a tight schedule with that.

avoid warsaw. poznan/wroclaw - the main square is nice and that's where it ends basically.

When you're in Kraków, you can make a short trip to Katowice to support the German ladies during the European Championship in volleyball (29 September - 1 October).

If you have a patience for just one museum in Poland - go to Czartoryski's Museum in Kraków. You should see Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) "Dama z łasiczką - Lady with the ermine".

They also have a painting by a Rembrandt.

Yes it is. Warsaw attract people/scum from whole coutry because of higher salaries so it is crowded city with horrendous traffic jams. Hated by many Poles.

Just recently returned from a trip with my two sons. Kraków should not be missed.
