I'm still wondering why this MAJOR BIG SCAM hasn't been reported anywhere online...
No mention from UK Gov about major scams in Krakow -everything else is on the list
Schengen agreement (swedemb-manila.com/consular/shengen.htm) has removed border controls between participating nations (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy and Austria) there are specific rules for visitors.
Under the Schengen rules you must verify your identity when staying at a hotel, boarding-house or camping ground in a Schengen state. The type of identity document you will be required to present varies and is decided by each country. This may mean you need to have your passport with you. If you are to stay at a hotel and travel in the Nordic area, the same applies as previously, that is to say you do not need a passport since any other identity document is adequate
