I cant resist just to do some PR for my city. Opole belongs to Slask region, an hour from Wroclaw and around two hours from Krakow. It is smaller and cheaper. My Swed friends were very happy about the trip there even thought about buying a flat there anyway she came back home with 8 par of shoes each for 20zl(that was bargains). Opole it is a modern city mostly focus on German tourists. Opole belong to Poland only for 62 years (ok and it was Polish in 1500....). The city has a lot of shops and restaurant and the best time to go there is summer were the bear gardens are open...Also fun maybe to go there when there is festival. Google Opole festival it is big thing in Poland. The city is all about the food. Of course more tourist place will be always Krakow and Wroclaw but Opole is between those two cites and if you have time left I think it is cool to see the place.

My mum went there twice not long ago (she's Polish but went to Opole for her work) and she found the city very nice, and particularly by night ;)

My mother's family is from Slask too, Gliwice ;)

I used to live in Opole in the 90's, when I worked in a private school there as a TEFL teacher!

My wife's from there and I loved living there. We head back for a few weeks each year. Great city. COME ON ODRA!!

Na zdrowie!
