I have read some interesting tips already posted but wondered if there were any other people who wanted to offer some tips for my trip in a few weeks.

I shall be based in Wroclaw for about 5 nights so i'm particularly interested in the following:

1. Pubs/bars (prices £ or Zl) Traditional Polish
2. English style pubs for watching sport
3. Whether there is any football or winter break (from a post on sports section)
4. Travel tips to Auschwitz. Is it possible to do in one day. any idea as to cot of rail fare?
5.Places of historical or other interest e.g. Japanese Gardens
6.Weather forecast for late November (I know this in not a precise science particularly given the climate changes!)
7. Places to avoid/ social faux pas
8. Hostel accommodation

Thanks in advance. If I can help anyone with English matters then please do not hesitate to PM me.

To get you started.

1 not expensive
2 various pubs have sport on TV
3 There is a winter break... not sure when.
4 Leave early - get back late. check PKP website. Also, check Auschwitz web-site.
5 not much. Japanese Gardens... a waste of time in winter.
6 check Google / Yahoo weather... it's pretty accurate.
7 can't think of any
8 yes

Thanks very much.
I'm well into the planning stage now trying to fit as much in as possible. May have to spend a few nights in Krakow as it will be easier to reach other places like Auschwitz and Zakopane. I think I'm OK for the football as I spotted a game in Krakow v Legia Warsaw.
